If they changed policies after you signed they have to honor what the rates were back when signed. That is how I locked in few things. We started working with palace back in late 2013 so I was able to lock in few things plus we didn't pick our photographer until they offered the 400 deal so we were able to lock that. Every year more things change, every resort is like that.
@KatyM81 did you do the dolphin excursion? I know they moved it to off site. Just wondering how many hours of the day does it take up now? And what do they have at the dock where the dolphins use to be?
Also, I keep getting conflicting info on using the vip area of Nior. I first heard it was only $100 something per bottle service. Then I was told its about $300-400 for a table for 6. Does any one actually know? I just want to be able to reserve the upper back area of the club and who exactly to contact. We have 30 people but I only think maybe 20-25 might go.
I didn't do the dolphin excursion but my sisters did. I think they left at 11 for the 12 time slot and the actual spending time with dolphins part was a little more than an hour. I'm pretty sure they were back around 2. So it's definitely more time consuming than it being right there, but they had a blast! On the dock where they used to be it looks like it's just a launching pad for some of the water sports, but I really don't know since I only walked past there once and wasn't sure what it was at first... And we didn't go to Noir so I can't help you out with that question, sorry!
