This is a great idea. After we booked in the past way ahead we have kept eyes on what fares are doing, and sometimes have contacted Cunard if we see prices fall below what we paid to discuss things like upgrade. On our QE2 Transatlantic years ago prices tumbled and we got a cabin in the Penthouse instead of a lower Queens Grill cabin. But only as we chased. Now Cunard seem to be being proactive.
In this new program Cunard say: "Price Promise means that you can secure your booking early with confidence, safe in the knowledge that if we were to reduce the Vantage Fares for your cruise, we guarantee to automatically pass on the value of the saving to you i.e. complimentary benefit such as on board spending money or an upgrade to the value of any reduction."
