We're cruising this coming May 15th on the Sensation and I was quite curious as to why the price of that particular cruise seems so much lower than the same cruises prior and afterwards. The May 29th departure is 50% more. in price.

By the end of May, schools are letting out for summer and families are taking vacations. It is also Memorial Day weekend, so the price would be higher. The cruise lines sock it to people who are beginning the summer travel (peak) season.
I think the early part of May would not be too busy because the kids are in school but as you get toward the end of school starts getting out so that is the reason I booked my cruise on May 9 on the Conquest hopefully there will be less school age children.
Hi Frank, My sister and I will both be celabrating our birthdays that week, otherwise we may have picked a different date but the cruise is from our hubbys for our Birthdays. This is our first cruise and we can hardly wait!!!!Hope your kids have a wonderful time!
