Price drop email alerts?

Hi.  Newbie here - having trouble figuring out how the 'price drop email alert' function works... when I click on it - it always just send me to "find a cruise"... once I find the cruise I am interested in, how do I set a price watch for that cruise?  Thanks in advance.

I inputted my own cruise in the field. That was the only one I was interested in.

I'm sure there are other options.

Thanks John... but I can't even get as far as the 'field'... when I click on the price alert button it sends me to "find a cruise"... then I put the cruise I'm interested in and it sends me to pricing for that cruise... but nowhere can I find a spot to tell it to keep a "watch" on that cruise for price drops...

I'm sure you will get an answer, as they are pretty good on this site for help. They helped me getting the app running on my phone.

Hi dfisher9,

We're working on some improvements to make the price alert process a bit more intuititve. For now, when you click the button on the homepage, it takes you to our cruise search page so you can find the cruise or cruises you want to watch.

 

Once you've found a cruise you want to follow, click the "Get Price Alert" button in the middle of the page, select your sail date and preferred notification options and frequency, and you're good to go!

Let us know if you have any other questions. Hope we can help you find a deal for your next cruise!

Hi Simon.  I appreciate your detailed, pictorial response... however, for both my friend and I... we do not get the screen that you have pictured above... we get no price alert button whatsoever... the pricing graph button appears, but not in the spot pictured above... our pricing graph button appears on TOP of the section that shows the featured cruise not below it... and again, nowhere is there a price alert button to be seen... which is the main function we are interested in.  Is a phone call a possibility to discuss this further - perhaps both of us going through the process step by step together?  Thanks for your help

Glad to hear you got it to work. As Simon said, we are working on making this easier to use.

Which cruise do you have your eye on??!

We've simplified the process so you can sign up for a price alert right from the home page!

Step 1: Look for the new box on the right side of the home page when you're logged in to the site and click "Get Price Alert"

 

 

Step 2: Select a cruise line, ship and sailing, choose your alert options and click "Save Price Alert" and you'll receive emails as specified.

 

 

You can add more price alerts or delete your existing alerts at any time, right on the homepage.

What do you think... Easier to use and more convenient? Let us know your thoughts!
