Interesting!

I never tried checking the price on an hourly basis.

That's why you book it and then watch the prices. If they go down, your agent can get you the decrease. If they go up, you're protected. But if you're watching the prices hourly, you really need to book it and get on with your life!

Plus, if you're trying to book online, keep in mind alot of those websites embed cookies on your computer and that helps them change the price because the cruise lines don't change them that often.

If i'm checking prices online I will use two different browsers; maybe Safari and Google Chrome; after I finish my search I wipe the cookies clean.

Airline websites are notorious for embedded cookies that will affect the prices you see. I've looked at an itinerary and gotten then price. Then I'll look at another itinerary and gotten another price. When I go back to the first itinerary, I've had the price increase. Then I'll wipe out the cookies or open a different browser and had the prices come up to what I saw in the beginning.

Had that happen when I was booking airfare for two couples. Got a rate for the first couple and when I went to book the second couple, the price increased. Changed browsers and booked the second couple at the same rate I got for the first couple.

Frustrating, to say the least!
