$649 - $750 is OK for a seven day cruise. What category cabin is it? It's about the top for an inside, good price for an outside and an excellent price for a balcony.
I would book now, especially if you have a preference on location. i.e. Near elevator, higher or lower deck or toward the center of the ship.
Waiting is always a gamble. There is a chance that there may be a cabin available but the cruise may be sold out. It is also a possibility that the price may go up and not down.
I have booked many cruises less than 60 days before sailing and have not had a problem. However, I will "probably" be sailing on the Carnival Liberty in March and the price now is about $200/pp more than when I booked last Summer. I'm glad I booked early on that one.
