Anybody remember the prices for the 2012 Alaska *GT rates?

Desperately seeking another cruise! LOL, I'm going through withdrawals. Oh, yes, it's pathetic. Since I live out west I was thinking of an Alaskan cruise. Anyone remember the actual prices/rates for the IGT/OGT/VGT the summer Alaskan cruises? According to this thread: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2988188 there were a few Alaskan cruises with *GT rates.

Bump.

I realize now that last year the cruise sailed out of Seattle. This year it's Vancouver. That could influence whether *GT rates come out or not. I'm thinking not actually.

I so wish DCL had stuck with Seattle. That was an easy 4 hour drive for us!

Haven't seen any *GT rates on any of the Alaska cruises yet. August tends to be more popular so it's not looking good.

No GT rates out yet. We are sailing on the May 27th,2013 out of Vancouver. The May 27th and June 3rd cat 11C has a price reduction to $999 per person.
Haven't seen any other reductions or GT rates.
We have a 5C GTY and have no cabin assignment yet.

I'm thinking there won't be any because sailing out of Vancouver was more popular than Seattle.

I use www.cruisefish.net to check prices. The rates for any specific cruise dates are color coded. If the rate goes up it is in RED if the rate goes down it is in GREEN. Its fun to use this site.
The 5/27/2013 cruise that I am on doesn't have any GT rates offered. Since we are sailing out of Vancouver I agree with the other posters that you might not see GT rates..
The 5/27 and 6/3 cruises out of Vancouver have 11C in GREEN for $999...

So according to this site, the ship is 58% full or available for the dates I am looking at. So either way it is roughly 50% full. In fact the majority of them are at about 50%.

I am becoming OCD on this whole GT rate wondering if I should hold out or book. If last years GT rates are any indication there would be some big savings if we waited.

Does anyone remember about how far in advance they came out with these rates?

That number means that 58% of the categories have at least 1 cabin available for booking.

*GT rates tend to come out after the paid in full date. Doesn't seem like there will be any for Alaska this year. Some paid in full dates have passed already.

Check under "stats" and past prices on www. Cruisefish.net. I just discovered this and really like it. You may find your _questions answered.
