Will it go down?

So, I am looking at a cruise for August 25th. So far, by the looks of various TA websites that display all of the cabins available in a specific category, rather than just the ten shown per category, it appears there are 18 cabins of the category I want. Do you think Carnival will lower the price? They just did this week, so maybe they will shortly? I know you can use the price protection form but just wanted to know.

I often cruise the Caribbean that week or the prior week (so I can get back in town before College Football starts). Generally, I'd say you can be pretty patient-this is right about the time the price should drop if its going to happen though. I'd be a little concerned about all these last minute trip cancellations or itinerary changes (Carnival Vista, Cuba etc). There is some juggling of plans that usually doesn't happen. Which cruise line? Carnival and RCCL for example seem to have different pricing strategies. Carnival seems to discount earlier but tends to drift higher later while RCCL seems to hold the line on prices except for the periodic BOGO sales but then might discount late if necessary. BTW if you wait until the following week that's a great week for even bigger discounts

Always a chance, always a risk.


I agree. By the looks of the roll call, only 50 some-odd members are available, and by the number of cabins, they will most likely drop the price. They already did about a week ago.

If you book early saver on Carnival, They will give you the lower fare if it goes down and you fill out the form.
