Default Cruise sales must be up!

Has anybody noticed that cruise sales seem to be way up over last year? Our Thanksgiving cruise on the Constellation is sold out except for one inside cabin and a couple of higher end suites.

I'm glad we booked when we did. Now, that one available inside cabin is more expensive than the 2-C balcony cabin we have reserved. Who'd have thought cruises would be selling out this far in advance.

Go figure!

Hi Chuck,
I think people in general are starting to travel more, including cruising. Cruising has always been a great way to vacation, guess word is catching on....

No doubt, especially on the more popular ships, that prices are rising. Harder to find cabins on many ship, even further out.

Hi Chuck,

We booked our Norwegian star trip back in Feb. and I don't know about the space, but the price has gone up $220US each. That'll just about pay for our airfare to LA!

I guess it paid to plan ahead this time.

I also noticed that my cruise was virtually sold out a couple of months ago.

We booked on Brilliance almost 2 months ago for April 2005, and it is almost a full ship!

Maybe we should keep the "cruise secret" a little closer to the vest!

I was hoping the prices would drop, or at least a good deal for an upgrade to a balcony would come up before my final $$ is due in early July, but it's not looking good.

If you are looking more than 90 dyas out, then you may be seeing a number of people or TAs who haves deposits down/holds on cabins. Once you get inside the final payment & penalty period it is often amazing what and how many cabins open up. I have been watching x-mas 04 cruises since 9/03. Prices are currently up but I would not be surprised to see drops around the beginning of Oct.
If they do family may go otherwise its on to thinking Alaska for summer 05.

We were just saying that this may be our last family cruise (July) for a while. Gets expensive to have two rooms for four people.
