I was wondering about price drops. Do they usually happen to only a certain class of cabin or do they drop equally for all cabins?
Do price drops happen more for one type of cabin than another? For example 4a's drop more often than 6a's.
Also is there a rhyme or reason for why/when they drop? Thanks, Carla
Prices drop when the cruise lines see a weakeness in their bookings on a particular ship. They have yield management programs that control inventory and pricing.
Generally ships sell from the top and bottom first... that is... the most expensive suites and the least expensive cabins sell first.
There's no other rhyme or reason for when, what how much etc.,and no guarantee that prices will drop, or just continue to rise, if the ship is selling well.
I've seen cases where inside cabins were actually sellling for MORE than balcony cabins, because the demand for insides was higher, and program kicked up the price, and balconies were sold cheaper... likely only until a human being happened to notice the discrepency.
