I couldn't get the same cabin for the cruises. I won't have 175 points until I leave the last cruise, so I'll be D+ on the Rock Legends II cruise but it won't mean anything because that is a charter! Oh well. At least I'll have D+ perks for our cruise in June to celebrate our son's high school graduation. You can't beat the Concierge Lounges on the Oasis and Allure. They are the best, especially with the breakfast and lunch menus.
The prices have been going up for December, that's for sure. I suspect when they officially announced it would be another special month for Diamond and above members that the phones got busy.
