It does get interesting, one cruise ES is the best, next one could be 55+ is better, Military could be better, one time it was the state or past guest. Valor, Glory and Liberty in the last few weeks have had good prices for 8A balcony some as low as $568 ea for some weeks, (Jan/Feb) have been the best. You have to look around at just prices, not every sailing has a special. If its 70% or more off its a good price then check out when and where it goes. Keep the blinders off and you can get some good prices.
