Arrow Haven't cruised since 2009, help me understand...

Hi, everyone! I have not posted on this board in a long time. Our first and only Disney Cruise was in June of 2009. We had snagged a great deal on a 7 Day Western in June for only $2800.00 for our family of 4. I understand that we will probably never see rates like that again for DCL ever. We just got lucky that I happened to be pricing cruises for the first time ever and it popped up so I knew I had better jump on it right away. That was back when there were Category 12 GTY cabins. We ended up getting upgraded to a cabin with a porthole window. From my understanding, DCL used to offer lower rates for their inside cabins to get people on the ship. I have been looking at rates off and on since then since we would LOVE to cruise again. However, the prices seem way out of whack for inside staterooms. We will certainly not be able to afford them. It seems that from browsing the boards that DCL offers "discounts" if you can wait and book closer to the cruise, pay in full, etc and other rules. My question is how good of a deal have folks been able to get by doing this? $6000 isn't a good deal to me. Can anyone please share what kind of prices they have been able to get and what month you sailed? We are pretty much stuck sailing during June and July due to school and sports. It would be my family of 4.
At this point, it looks like we will be sailing on another cruise line since DCL and even WDW prices seem to be skyrocketing. We used to go to WDW every year but it has gotten out of reach for us.
Thanks for any info.
