We just booked a 7 day Western Caribbean out of Galveston for May 1, 2011, on the early saver rate. I compared the "per day" cost from 5 years ago and it came to the exact price as we are booked for now. For our particular cruise, we are happy that our rates have not increased. Hope they go down and we can get on-board credits
. but if not, at least we are locked in!
