I have been keeping an eye on the price and noticed today that it is 200.00 P.P cheaper with a 50.00 P.P deposit.This offer ends tommorrow.Should I book now or should I wait and see if the price goes down more? April of 2015 is aways Away maybe it will go down more maybe not.What do you guys think?

Book now. You can always cancel and re-book before final payment. You have nothing to lose and a lot to gain.

Take care,
Mike

Book with a reputable agent and then wait to see if the prices go down again. Do not book directly with the cruise line because who do you think they represent should you have any problems?

But if the price goes down, your agent can get you a reduction as long as it occurs prior to final payment due date. After that, sometimes the agent can get you things that you can't should the price of your cruise goes down.

If the price goes up, then your protected and your price won't be affected. So definitely book now!

I totally agree; book now and in the event you need to cancel you're in a good position to do so.
