This is coming into prime Caribbean cruise season, and pricies usually go up. Not to mention the drastic holiday cruise increases.
You CAN still find good prices, but, need to search!
Good Luck

There are no guarantees, but the price will probably not be going down at this point. As it gets closer to the sailing date, if prices begin to increase it usually indicates that there is greater demand than supply. Being that the date you are interested in is less than 3 months out, you run the risk of prices continuing to rise or the ship selling out. A good travel agent can check on actual availability and give you a clearer picture of the situation.

I don't think that the prices will go down. You are best off taking the lowest price now as I have been looking just to see if they have gone down since we booked last month and they have only been going up. Good Luck, MMOE

I'm curious where you "look" to find better prices. I just booked our 5th cruise and, as an internet junkie, I have found that there is no where that really offers any better pricing than any of the others.

I have to agree with you. Since the cruise lines have moved to eliminate rebating, pricing seems to have leveled off on just about all of the sites. At this juncture, I think the best bet is to find a good cruise specialist that has access to group rates through their consortium....

In fact, this might make for a good article for CruiseReviews.com?
