Do DCL prices go up/how quickly?

The 2014 European cruises have just come out, and I am wondering if DCL jacks the prices up as the cruise sells. If so, does this happen over weeks/months? Also, how much of an increase does it rise?

I am working out logistics for a summer 2014 cruise in Europe, but am wondering how long I realistically have to book before the price goes up or the cruise/stateroom catagories sell out (how quickly and often does THAT happen?)

Thanks in advance for any info!

Prices rise dependant on how quickly the ship is filling. Sometimes this rise can be dramatic (within hours), other times it will take months to rise.

You take a chance the longer you wait, but I don't know that there's a specific rate that can be stated as the amount of the price increases.

DCL uses a tiered pricing system. The first tier of each category gets the lowest price. When the set nmber of rooms has been sold, the price goes up to the next tier, and so on.

Prices can go up by the hour. The prices for the Southern Caribbean Cruise on Sept 20th had already increased in price by 11 am. It's a gamble to wait. I think its better to book it to lock in the price and then make any changes if necessary. Good luck!

I anticipate the southern cruise will climb in price quickly. It's a great itinerary.

The price for 2A in a verandah looks to have gone up over $1,000 from first thing yesterday AM to close of business day.

That date is going up for sure, and more than the others, but not sure it's quite $1000 as the data points I see are 5A vs 5C and one includes an OBB and the other does not. Either way, they're creeping and the majority of the public hasn't even had their opportunity yet.
