It probably makes sense because they aren't getting the result they wanted by slashing prices. The result they wanted was for people to spend more money with on board purchases. Generally speaking, cruises selling for $299/$399 do not draw the type of clientele that will then turn around and spend $1000 on board. It draws the clientele that are shopping for any cheap cruise. They may spend a little money on board but not to the levels of making up for slashing the cruise price.
