Default Best Time To Book A Cruise for July 2008 ?

Me and my friend are going on our senior trip cruise in July 2008. We have 2 in mind but both are around 1,000-1,300 per person right now. Should we book now or wait or ????? Any help ?

I would wait a little. We don't book until closer, because you usually get better deals. Because they would rather lower the price then have rooms empty.

I totally understand. What ships are you looking at?

But when we booked voyager of the seas in 2005, we got an amazing price because they wanted to fill up the ships! And we booked it two weeks before the sailing date!

i reccommend the Caribbean Princess. it prolly wont get too much cheaper since thats a popular, nicer ship, and will fill up quickly.

Hmm..

Caribbean Princess!
I went on the Crown Princess out of NY and it was so much fun! Plus I haven't really heard good things about NCL. Plus the princess one is a day longer!

if youre on a new york sailing.. then definitely book now. the prices for those cruises rarely go down because there is such a huge demand for them.
