Was surfing some TA sites and seeing some deep discounts being published across lines. If you've booked, and haven't made a final payment, you may want to look to see if currently published rates are sufficiently lower to justify a re-book. You can set up price alerts on Cruiseline to help follow changes.

Seeing some deep discounts
Have already signed up for price alerts on cruiseline site and has come in handy a couple of times for price reductions.
I have been tracking ours which leaves in 2 and a half weeks and since booking 6 months ago prices have only gone up. 2 weeks ago the price for the same balcony class as we booked was $900 per person more. Last week it was $530 per person more that when we booked. Today both the cruise before ours and our cruiser are no longer listed on the NCL site. Only the following cruise is listed.
on my cruise a couple weeks ago I booked a few days out and got a great price. On my next cruise I watched and when prices dropped 65 days out I got a great price, about $ 80.00 a night for a cabin by myself.
I noticed the same thing a week or so back. I am booked on the Diamond Princess (yes...the one that was plastered on the news) in July. There is a 40% drop in price from my original booking. I called Princess and re-fared the booking keeping my cabins the same. Now I am waiting to see if this whole virus thing clears by spring and summer.
In light of all the news about people being stuck on cruises, you probably will see good deals regardless of where you are looking to cruise. It is definitely worth everyone taking a look at their prices to see if you can save money.
I love the Price Alerts from Cruiseline.com, but since the OP said they were surfing some TA sites I want to point out that a good Travel Agent should be monitoring this for you and adjusting to the best value whenever possible. That said, anytime you think you’ve found a better deal always reach out to your travel agent to make sure – they should always be happy to check. Happy cruising!
