2013 should be out sometime in Oct. As far as pricing goes, the sooner you book the better.

True, that's past experiences, but the 2012 schedule just came out to the end of the year. I hope they follow the original schedule, but with the Fantasy coming out in the spring, they may still need to work out ports/schedules and delay that.

Keep in mind that re-booking on board gives you the opportunity to take advantage of the onboard booking incentives...50% deposit, 10% discount plus a $100 or $200 onboard credit, depending on your choice of 7+/- day itenerary...we booked a dummy cruise on our cruise last week, but we are looking for a 2013 cruise...my dummy was for a 3 day cheapest that I could find and only booked myself...everything will transfer when I book my real cruise when the new iteneraries come out. I will add the rest of my party at that time as well. My deposit was about $70, you can't beat that...and if I find a better deal out there, then I can't lose either because I didn't actually book the 2013 cruise yet...does that make sense?

No doubt that booking onboard is a great deal....but booking when rates first come out is also a good idea and then when you do cruise you can "reshop" that cruise and see which is the better deal....if the price of the cruise went up more than 10% then rebooking that cruise onboard may not be worth it. If the price did not go up then the rebooking deal is a better value and should be rebooked onboard.

Also, keep in mind when rebooking onboard for only one person.....sometimes when you go to add others it can't be done due to lifeboat capacities or kid's club capacities.
