There's no "down side" to booking as early as possible, other than taking the deposit money out of your account sooner. The earlier you book, the best choice of staterooms you have. Your travel agent or you can watch the cruise pricing between booking and sailing, because if the price of your category of room goes down, your price will most likely be reduced as well.

For us, the earlier - the better. That gives us longer to save for the balance due. If the price goes down, which it did on our cruise last fall, you (or your TA) can contact the line for adjustment (we opted for the credit - we could have upgraded for the amount difference). Whichever you do - enjoy your cruise.

I booked our Island Princess cruise to Hawaii about a year in advance. From the time of booking, the prices only went one way--up. I'm not saying this will always be the case, but as the others have pointed out, if they should go down, you can get a refund or credit.

And even at a year out, a lot of the mini-suites were already booked. If you are considering Golden Princess, she has over 700 balconies and a whole deck of mini-suites, so getting one shouldn't be a problem. But if you want a specific cabin, like I do, the earlier the better.
