Well...with a couple of exceptions I don't cruise in standard cabins.

I may well sell my RCL when it gets up in the 40s like it was a year or so back.
I receive a lot of my shareholder OBC from Celebrity & Azamara as well as RCI. The other lines don't have a credit similar to the RCI C&A early booking credit. also, if the shareholders credit is higher than the C&A credit you would get the difference.

But it is hard to argue about selling if it hits >40. Your profit can go a long way against OBCs.
