A friend of mine is taking a cruise in May on Carnival and is convinced (at least by his travel agent) that if he waits a week or two before the cruise he can get a discount on a single cabin (oceanview cabin) for around $500. A single cabin (oceanview) for the cruise he's planning is normally around $1,700.
I told him no way he could get a cabin for that price at the very least the price would be doubled to $1000. Mind you this isn't his first cruise he's been on 4 or 5 day cruise but this will be his first 7 day.
Question, has anyone taken a 7 day cruise and paid only $500 for a single room?
