We are wanting to plan a cruise for Spring Break 2016 for 4 families on Norwegian sailing out of Houston - each family has 2 children ranging from 1 year old to 15 years old. One of us is suggesting we wait until Jan 1 to book our cruise as he believes the prices may drop substantially because of people who gave up or in the hopes that it might not fill up and the cruise line may decide to drop prices in an attempt to get it to its maximum capacity.

Aside from the obvious "there may not be any space available", what do my fellow experienced cruisers think? Shall we book early or wait and why?

Thanks and I appreciate the input!

Best regards!
