That was how I interpreted it Tim.... the oldest sales ploy in the book.. "BUY NOW THIS PRICE IS NOT GOING TO BE AVAILABLE TOMORROW!"
What better way would there be to get the fence sitters to act then to threaten them with higher prices if they don't book now.
Of course what Dwayne has said is true too, prices have been artificially low for the last year or two, but I don't see things getting so good in the economy that all the ships are going to be booked full in the next couple of months.
