    MA residency discount

    I noticed when I click off Residency rate notification it shows FL residency. I'm from MA, will it alert me for my state if the rate goes down?

    When did you enable residency discounts? Do I need to go back and redo my alerts? Thanks

    I am currently testing FL residency discounts on X and RCL. You need to enable this new rate on all relevant alerts.

    Regarding states, I can't realistically support all states, so I chose FL as the most likely to benefit from special rates. Usually if FL has special rates then other states as well.

    Thanks for reply. I discovered that when I went back and looked more closely. Please, please, please do Alabama next! There are frequently disc. for AL residents.

    You mean there are cases when discounts exist for AL and not FL?

    Please provide an example if possible.

    Re: residency discount

    As an example of a cruise that offered a MA discount but not FL, the Adventure of the Seas is giving a discount to MA but not FL so it would not have come up on my selection if I was monitoring that particular date. Is there a way to choose which state to monitor?
    thanks

    Sorry, I just read my last post. The Adventure Sailing that is offering a MA discount but not FL is the 12/18/11 sailing out of San Juan.
    Hope this helps. thanks.

    II can't provide an example right now but when residency discounts are offered with RCI, sometimes 6-7 states are included--sometimes not. Alabama is not always included when FL has a discount and vice versa.
