    Price Difference..

    I am very new to this and have a quick couple of questions. I thought I had read somewhere that TA's are not allowed to drop the price of a cruise below what is being offered by the cruise line directly. However, they are allowed to offer "perks". Is this true?

    I am asking because we have recently put a deposit down on a cruise with Celebrity. I got a better deal than what is listed on the Celebrity website or on CruiseFish.

    And, so, if celebrity drops the price of the cruise that I have booked, should my TA match that price drop? (I realize I may loose a perk but if it saves more money then its worth it)

    Your travel agent should be able to contact Celebrity and obtain any price reduction available up to final payment date.

    Group prices can be lower with OBC that isn't offered at retail prices. And TAs can offer that to as little as one cabin with some lines, by offering the rest of the group out to the rest of the agency. Your golden whether the group fills or not. Only caveat is has to be a few months out can't do this last minute.
