    price drop did not reflect RCI cost when called

    I called RCI this morning to check the price for a junior suite on Freedom of the Seas April23.Cruisefish showed a significant drop yesterday. The cruiseline showed no changes as of 10:50 this morning Feb.25

    Any thought on this discrepancy?

    Sorry for the delayed response but maybe this will help someone else. 

    The price drop is sometimes for a very short time. Sometimes the price drop is only for 1 room in the category, someone books it, and the price reverts back. Ocassionally there's a cruise fish error. 

    I've had price drops to slightly below what I've paid (supposedly) but due to RCI's creative accounting practices, my original price is better because of how the C&A balcony discount is figured in relation to the current "promotion" by RCI. The balcony discount is taken off the wrong person making the final price not as good. It gets complicated.

    "OCCASIONALLY there is a cruisefish error?"    Try consistently as of late-- I'm tracking four cruises. Two for 2018, both of which took WEEKS to show 1 person rates after about 10 unreturned emails to cruisefish support.  While it's great that the prices are now being tracked, they are both TOTALLY WRONG. And I get notified of a change-- the original price is wrong AND the new price is wrong.
