When claiming an early saver reduction, you have to compare the same cabin category. It sounds like you were looking at a rate for a "to be assigned" cabin which you cannot compare categories in that case. That is why to get the lower rate you can rebook but will then have a TBA cabin. This is correct for this case.
Now if your cabin was a 4b and you found a lower rate for a 4b then you would not have to forfeit your assigned cabin. You have to really understand how the Early Saver works, you can't just find any lower rate and expect it to count.
May all your cruises be fun, relaxing and full of laughter!!! Linda
