    Question on pricing for alert

    Been a year or so since I used this site, had great success in the past, and I'm having a brain fart as far as pricing.  Just to confirm, to set the alert for a price drop I am putting in the price for 1 person correct?  So cruise fare divided by 2 as I got a BOGO 1/2 off deal. 

    Next question, when setting up selected rates, I have all my applicable rates (military, law enforcement, etc...) set for 2 person.  Is that going to be an issue if the price mentioned above is set pp?

    I do not put in a specific amount, that is optional and I typically do not use it.     As soon as I make a booking, I obviously know what the rate is that day.   I then go and set up an alert on the category I booked and above.    I believe the wording is, Down, price is down since last alert.       Sometimes if I think categories above mine may drop well below what I paid, I will plug in an amount I'm willing to go to for a paid upgrade (aka upsell).

    For example if I paid $500 for a balcony, I will set up an alert on a balcony (leave the optional link to put in an amt. blank), I'm going to get an alert for anything less than $500 (no need to put in an amount, if the alert comes in you call the cruiseline or TA (depending how you booked)     If I've booked enough in advance I would also set up a suite alert for what I would be willing to pay if that was an option.  For example I'd set up a suite alert and plug in either $550 or $600 depending on the ship and/or length of cruise - thats about the only time  I add an amount.    You can put anything, its just emails in your inbox that you can delete.

    Can you tell me if the CF rates quoted include the taxes on the cruise?


    Thanks,  Bob

    The rates quoted are exclusive of tax.
