    When will the new alert format be available?? I want to create an alert for a cruise I booked that had a 200% rate, want to be able to track if the surcharge drops or the price per person drops (not likely to happen). thanks

    When I went to the new alert, my question is:   I put in 1 traveler, standard rate (or one of the other options if that had applied). Under the alert would I put that I want to be notified if the price goes down below the current price at 200%, or should I put the per person rate??

    For example, I booked a Cat N cabin at $819/pp, which was doubled to the $1638 I was charged. So I would want to be notified if the price goes below $1638 ???

    Thanks for doing this, it will be a great service for singles.

    Solo rates are per person by definition. So that is what will be used against your down price trigger (if you have one).

    Thanks, I'll put in the $1638. Wasn't sure how your site would work with the new 1 traveler, thought maybe it would automatically double any change in the pp rate but I guess you are saying it will actually compute the 1 person rate (the pp rate times whatever surcharge is applied by the cruise line). .

    I set my alerts on Quantum of the Seas for one person standard, one person senior, one person new york resident, however when I check the finder, I still do not see the Studio Balcony or Studio Interior listed as one of the categories being monitored.

    Please include it so that should one become available (as one did last week and I missed it being available due to no alert for that category being set up--I am aware of how data base systems that utilize auto mailings work--no monitored category=no auto alert) so I can book it and those that initially set my alert up for will auto alert me.

    Since the new deployments for summer 2015 through winter 2016 are scheduled to be out before  the end of  the month, those of us looking to specifically book this category on either Quantum of the Seas or Anthem of the Seas really need to have it included and for those of us that already currently booked in either an SB or SI we deserve the same opportunity for the alert we initially paid for as everyone else who is looking for a drop in a double occupancy cabin.

    Even though the SI and SB cabins were created with the solo traveler in mind, according to RCCL's website they will hold two people and I am aware from cruisecritic.com that some of these cabins were booked by two people. Please do not tell me that the reason that category disappeared was due to RCCL as you had told me in my post to "my SB categories on the Quantum disappeared" that you deleted some categories for which there were no current bookings available. We solo cruisers desperately need to have this category back if we are to realize any significant savings using your website. Please reinstate it!

    Apparently these categories are already sold out on many (most?) dates. That's why they don't appear yet. Find me a date where they are still available and I'll make sure they appear in the price table so that you can set alerts on them.

    I see that it has been done for those dates but can you carry that category over to all the sailings for Quantum and for Anthem as I want to monitor the cruises I have already booked (and originally set up alerts on) .
