Default Carnival Fun4All Cruise Sale

I checked the rates for my cruise I am wanting to take in August. (Imagination 8/3/09 Miami) The rates have dropped $30/pp total of $120 for our party using the past cruiser discount.

Now what I am in is a strong delima to listen to Kuki's blog/thoughts on potentially waiting to book closer to the cruise time or booking now for that "good rate".

I did not like the change Carnival made whereas once the final payment has been made, they will not honor any OBC or refunds before your cruise date.

What is a NOID to do???!!!!

Book the cruise and don't full in paid. Just pay the deposit and watch for price drops.

We booked, and paid just the deposit so far.
Final payment due in June. So we are watching and hoping that the price drops before then.

We are going on Imagination 8/10 & 8/14

There's a long thread about this under all things cruising. Some good thoughts there. It's loke the Orbitz commercial about the fear of clicking - when do I book? - Arghh the agony.
