I just noticed the same think happening for my cruise, Royal Carrabean! In my case, less than half for the new price! have emailed my agent here in Australia to see what she can do, only thing is, she is the third agent to handle my booking since originallly set out to book, first two left the agency, but I hope the follow through is still there. At the new prices, what I originally paid for an inside cabin, would now almost pay for a balcony cabin, about another $147.00 aust, (each) at minimum I expect an upgrade! I will post the out come later in the week.
