    Re: no alert received

    Hi,

    No, I received that alert (and was very happy!). There is a new price drop today, on C3 and AQ for sure, I'm not sure what else yet.

    Re: no alert received

    I think something is still a little wonky with Cruise Fish on this sailing.

    The price went up and then came back down again, and it's showing in the history but not at the bottom of the page and I did not receive an alert when it went back down.

    I am now growing concerned that I will miss a price drop in the future and have begun to check the price on the Celebrity website daily like I used to, which kind of negates the point of paying for this service.

    Is there a bug? Why am I not being notified and why are the price drops not listed at the bottom of the page?

    Re: no alert received

    I think there is still a problem with this sailing- the Canadian prices were definitely not that high before so I think there is a glitch.

    Not to mention, again I did not receive notification of this drop which supposedly occurred 18 hours ago when I am requesting price drops in Canadian currency.

    What is going on? Why am I not receiving notifications and what is up with the pricing glitch?

    The first time I received a price drop the service worked as it was supposed to but now there have been two price changes since that I was not notified of. I would appreciate some assistance.

    It's not a glitch. On that cruise you only subscribe to DOWN events. That means you only get alerts when the price drops lower that the last DOWN alert you received, not each time it goes down after going up. For that to happen you would have to subscribe to UP events as well.

    I did not receive any alert yesterday when Allure Dec. 2, 2012 prices changed. I did receive an alert from another source however. I am using Internet Explorer 9 when visiting your site. I have Windows 7 Home Prem. x64. I get email with Thunderbird. Here is the link: http://www.cruisefish.net/selector.md?id_cruise=17160

    Thanks.

    I did not receive that message. I even looked in the spam folder to see if it might be there and it wasn't. Any idea what is going on? I had no trouble getting the notification of your response to my earlier message about not receiving the alert.

    I am positive about that mail being delivered to you email provider. I'll send you an extract of our mail server logs by private email so that you can ask your ISP about that message's whereabouts.

    Re: no alert received

    Jim (titus), you have to find a way to catch the Princess price drops for Captains Circle members too. I never would have caught several in the past, including today's huge drop that CF has quoted for Cat BA at $5,945pp/USD (Princess has it for $5,495pp, non-Captains Circle, CF didn't catch that drop) and Captains Circle came out today at $4,845pp/USD. If I had not been checking it on my own I would be out $2,200 for the two of us, that's a lot!... This is for the 3/26/13, 28 day sailing out of Los Angeles to the South Pacific on the Star Princess... No alert was sent to me for any amount, and I have received my mailings from CF in the past so it's not in a junk folder? Thanx
