How much did your room price increase since you booked?

We booked our next cruise onboard our last cruise last year, for a full year in advance (which seems to be quickly approaching!). We got the 10% discount for booking onboard. Recently I checked what our current category stateroom is selling for, and it's $1350 higher than what we are paying! Glad we booked when we did!

It was getting close to almost double for the Transatlantic stateroom we booked. Can't check prices anymore as they don't have any available even close to our category.

I can't check via DCL as they have our category as sold out, but Cruisefish says it's still available, and it's gone up $164 per adult since we booked it last year.

We booked our cruise on The Fantasy for next month in Sept. while onboard the Wonder.
We booked a 5B for $3,400 for 2 adults.
When we booked another cabin for our son and his girlfriend several months later, we paid about the same to get them a navigators verandah. Now a navigators verandah is over $1,900 a person.

Just checked. Our cruise is just 3 1/2 weeks away. The cost for our cruise (2 adults , 1 child) that I booked over a year ago is up about $1,000.00. So glad I booked it so far ahead!!

Last August my fiancee and I booked an Alaska honeymoon cruise on the Wonder (Cat 09A departing July 21) for about $3500 after an onboard booking discount. The price has gone up about $850 since then, so I'm REALLY glad we booked when we did.

It was a complete and utter impulse booking while we were onboard the Dream for a short 3-day Bahamian getaway. We both loved DCL's amenities and attention to detail so much we knew that going with someone else for our honeymoon would be a letdown. Good thing we just threw caution to the wind because if we tried booking that today we wouldn't be able to afford it.

Booked our 5/31 Fantasy cruise opening day @ $2,100 includes $200 OBC. Checked Cruise Fish sold out at $3,610. Based on recent changes I think Memorial Day weekend will be a black out date for 2015.

We booked our DReam cruise way after opening day because we originally booked a jan 2014 cruise on our our jan 13 cruise but then changed our minds a few months later and switched to spring break Mar 2014. We are paying about 2650 for 4 of us in a 9b. I thought that was alot because I have cruised on a 7 night for just about that price and done other four and five nights for much less on off peak times. But, I just checked now and everything is sold out except for 11b and c and it is 5800!!! For a four night inside stateroom! So that is more then double what I paid....CRAZY!
