I have noticed a LARGE price differential betweeen Princess and RCL on one week Alaska cruises, with Princess being a lot cheaper. A mini-suite on Princess for one week is over $1000 per cabin cheaper than a similar accomodation of RCL. Cruises leave within a day of each other and the itinerary (roundtrip Seattle) is virtually identical. We are experienced (Platinum) Princess cruisers, have not been on RCL but the research suggests the level of quality is similar. My wife's sister picked RCL. I'm just curious why the Princess fares are so much lower, is Princess more aggressively discounting given the poor economy?
