3nt Dream pricing

Just curious, what's the cheapest you've seen the 3nt Dream? I assume the lowest prices come with the last-minute restricted fares?

Generally, the lowest prices for a cruise are the ones offered on opening day for any specific cruise.

The last-minute restricted fares, while lower than the prevailing rates at the time, are typically higher than the opening day rates for the same room

The above is correct unless you live in Florida or are part of the military.

Recent Florida resident rates out of both Port Canaveral and Miami have been available for as little as $100/pp/night.

For example, I see some pricing now starting at $375. Do you think opening day pricing would have been lower than that?

Which cruise? And is that the individual price?

Jan 31st? OGT?

If so then the data I have says, yes, that is cheaper than opening day pricing. (Category 9D - $471/pp)

I think there are some dates in Jan. and Feb. for $375pp. I hadn't really been watching pricing lately, but with all the snow we've been getting, it's made me start looking for a nice long weekend getaway. Just wondered if $375 was good or if I could possibly wait even more last-minute and do better.

Well, once the last-minute restricted fares (IGT, OGT, VGT) are announced, that's the price they will be. As PP noted Fl rates and military could be lower, if they are offered.

There's a sticky above that has the pricing for the Dream cruises in 2013:
