If you have noticed cruise fares going up lately it is probably because they dropped the fuel surcharge which added about $70 per person per day. Overall, fares have not gone up significantly if you include that, and if you add in incentives like free 3 & 4th passengers (or $99) plus upgrades and onboard credit they are actually cheaper.

The Caribbean is surprisingly strong right now, but this is the coldest winter in many years. Alaska is a bargain right now, but if we have a heat wave in April that could change.
