10 Questions to Ask Your Cruise Line Before You Bookby Fran Golden | January 09, 2017
10. What happens if the price drops?
Like the price of a plane ticket, the price of a cruise can fluctuate wildly between when it goes on sale and the final booking. While some cruise fares are non-refundable, many are not. Ask upfront what happens if the price drops after you put down your deposit. While you might not get a cash refund to make up the difference, you might be able to negotiate for a cabin upgrade or onboard credit.
