Even not kashrus related? @ExGingi
Everything is kashrus related.

I don't set the rules.

There's a בעל אכסניא (pun intended) here, and he ruled that:
Everything is kashrus related.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

My experience there was that I didn't receive a material upgrade so if you want it you may consider paying. At other properties I've had success negotiating a cheaper price for a bigger upgrade because of Diamond status but no experience at this property.

Anyone know if cash prices go up closer to date or they generally stay the same?

The prepaid rate is basically the only thing I stand to lose if I cancel my trip. Trying to figure out if it pays to risk it.
