    RCI Oasis 7/23 price drop not showing up

    The RCI site has lowered prices for several categories for this sailing, but I have not seen any alerts and the main page still shows old prices.

    I just checked the USD prices on RCI's page and they exactly match our prices.

    For what categories (and/or currencies) do you see a discrepancy?

    Thanks for the prompt response! Looks like you're not tracking the reduced rates for residents of some states (they have reduced rates for California residents).

    Is there any way to add that into your tracking capabilities? We just called a travel agent and they found the special rates, but it would be nice to be able to use CF for that.

    Resident and senior rates usually apply on the same cruises at the same time. In other words: simply track senior rates and you can be 90% sure that resident rates will apply on that same cruise.

    It would be hard to track resident rates for all 50 states, but I will try adding a rate for, say, FL residents. Usually when a cruise has resident rates it applies to all coastal states. That's what I noticed anyway.

    Does anyone have more info on how these rates work with regards to states and their relation to senior rates?

    I can only reply from my experience over the past 15 years...but I have never seen a senior rate occur at the same time as a state rate. Obviously it does happen for some states. Also, Alabama frequently has a state discount (technically not a "coastal" state). I would really like to see you track both of these as one or the other appears more often than a reduction in price.
