I have checked how much it would cost for me to have a balcony cabin (Cat 8C or 8D) on the Liberty next September. I find that it is fair and reasonable price. It isn't double what it would be, but it is more like 150%. If they charge more in port fees, then so be it, I want to go, so I will go.
I'll bring less money to spend instead of more. I want to see the same ports I saw again and Liberty is going that way in September 08. I'll spend more on excursions and take more photos.
I find that if I try going solo through RCI, I would pay considerably more than on Carnival....
I guess you can blame the fact that Canadian dollar is now 1.0355 vs the US dollar--amlost 4 cents over par. They should be lowering the price and advertising more to Canadians to get them to cruise!
