JohnB, it could be also that you are a Platinum with Princess. They discount to an extent for loyalty. Even without that as a factor, Princess has always been less expensive than Royal for any cruise that I've looked at. I guess it's because Princess doesn't have a rock wall? All I can suggest is comparison shop before booking. Heck, HAL is offering some similar cruise itineraries less than Princess, which is less than Royal (this was not for the Alaska itinerary). I hope that next year's fares will be competitive, too.
