FDR must think he is on a roll or something. I wonder if the entire industry is going to go this route? We get on Regent for a little over three weeks beginning Oct. 7. This most recent booking involves the lowest rates we have seen with Regent in over four years. I thought four years ago FDR went crazy with Regent's rates. Comparing Regent with mainstreamers, like Princess, using similar itineraries but paying for a lot of extras including deluxe suites and lots of extra charge dining and other amenities, Regent was still running two to three times more.
"Del Rio warned that “significant” price hikes would go into effect for several of Norwegian’s brands as of October 1, 2018. Travel Weekly reported that these increases will impact 67 percent of Oceania’s 2019 bookings, and 92 percent of Regent’s 2019 sailings. He also indicated that as much as half of the company’s available inventory for 2019 has already been booked, emphasizing that “more ships are coming, but demand is outstripping supply.”
"Meanwhile, it sounds as if those looking to book a cruise on one of the ships in Norwegian’s multi-brand fleet might want to consider doing it sooner rather than later, especially knowing prices are likely to go up as of October 1st!"
