From what Pete posted regarding sometimes price reduction after final payment, I was thinking I would never book w/i a few weeks before final payment.
T'pup, Did you book your cruise 3 weeks before final payment w/i the past year or so? Repricing or OBCs after final payment was changed about a year ago. You definitely got a good deal @ $100/night for a balcony + OBC.
So my thinking now is never book a few weeks before final payment unless it is a great deal.
