Default Allure price $829 higher than Oasis price $799 Anyone know why?

I was looking at pricing for Oasis and Allure and I saw that the Allure price was higher than Oasis price. I was wondering if it was because of the ports they traveled to or some other oreason. The taxes and fees were nearly the same.

Royal Caribbean had a full page thank you ad to customers and others in the Monday August 12 issue of the Wall Street Journal. Interesting placement of an ad and end of ad reads share all your great stories #ROYALWOW.

It's all about supply and demand.

Plus, if you're looking at 'advertised' rates, it could be that the prices shown are for different categories.

Yes, Pete's 'right on' about S&D. Probably just a few more booked on the Allure right now.

A lot of the time, the newer of the two are priced higher, plus the supply and demand goes into effect as well. They do depart on different days, one a Sat and the other Sunday, sometimes that may make a difference to bookings...

In general the Eastern Caribbean itinerary costs more than the Western, is that a factor here?
