Really? You expected a high season rate to be $3000 for a 7-night? Spring break use to cost more than mid summer. After the pricing glitch was corrected for 2013 the week before Easter was about the same as the 2014 prices. There wasn't an 11C available after the glitch, but an 11A 2A2K [12, 14] was 5384.40 for that week in 2013 -- so it would have been about the same. I would suggest that you look into altering your reservation because for another $552 you can have an 8D with a porthole and more room.

I have checked all of the quotes I got on the phone yesterday with the website this morning and every single one in April, June, July and August are the exact same price on the Fantasy. That includes the week before Easter, which had nothing available below a cat 5 after noon on opening day for 4 people last year for 2013 dates.

10% off + OBC. Not sure what to recommend. I will be cruising in March too and will wait but that's because a 2014 cruise unfortunately isn't in my budget.

I would think the price will go up more than what you would save by booking on board by March. I booked last February (for Easter 2013) and the price was still very close to day 1 booking, but within 6 weeks it had gone up considerably. I think that was a bit of an anomaly though because I booked right before the Fantasy got a lot of media attention and probably before a lot of people had finalized spring break dates for 2013.

I am a happy happy person this morning!!! My TA just moved our May2013 to May2014 ....

May 17/14 Eastern 2A 2K(10,12) Cat 4c $5066.08 with onboard booking discount, all taxes, no transfers or insurance

Was of course hoping for less but since I had booked the May2013 in May2012, I am actually saving money ...shocking I know!!! lol Its only about $150 but I was braced for a huge shock. Now I had really wanted to book the May31 as it's my dd's birthday but that's so not worth the over $750 more!

Is it wrong to LOVE your TA .... Karen from www.SmallWorldvacations.com is the BEST!

No discounts, no insurance, no transfers

I have it on hold; not sure I want to pay that much for an inside cabin.... Gonna think about that one.
Priced with OBB discount...
Ours for one cat 4D came to about $6600
Two cat 6B came to about $7360
Two cat 8D came to about $5840

Not sure what to do...we sailed the same week western In 2012 and it was about $5800 for VGT. I may go ahead with moving us to the 2 8D rooms or just wait for a discount later. No way I am paying for the two cat 6Bs at that price!

For further perspective....I could move our OBB right now to the same week in 2013 and it would be about $7260 in 2 cat 5Es. Guess there is no benefit to booking early!

Thank you! We are going on the Wonder this Spring Break (2013). I wanted to book the Fantasy March 22, 2014. OMG not in my budget! I have been thinking about booking with Royal. I don't know what to do. :sosad

You're on board with us now - I think April 12th is about $440 higher than April 19th - because most schools have off the week BEFORE Easter (not after).

May 17 2014 Eastern, 2A cat 8A = $2873.24 w/OBB
Happy with that price, $197 more than the Western we had booked for May 2013. Better than I was expecting after reading along yesterday, glad we don't have to vacation in the summer. I may try to move it to fall after the new dates come out.

I guess I am still kicking myself for not jumping on the glitch! I should have been on top of things last year - uggggggh!!!!!! I thought the pricing would start the same way this year as last - where it started aroun 3K and jumped up - Boy was I wrong!

The porthole and more room are not worth $552 to me.. I am not rich.

Ok - here is our break down:

4/12/14 Fantasy Western
Cat 5E
2A, 1C (10) $4612.35 ($1776.60/$1776.60/$812.70) - includes OBB
No Ins/Transfers/Air

This will hopefully be our Spring Break (school calendar not out yet ) and I already switched from the 4/19/12 Eastern to this in hopes I get the timing right. For those interested, the 4/19/12 Eastern that would include Easter Sunday on 4/20/12 was actually about $400 cheaper. I'd prefer the Eastern, but need to stick to the school calendar.

It was definitely a lot cheaper than summer so I'm trying to remain optimistic about the price in general!

WOOHOO! Yep, funny I just posted than in my price post above.

We typically have the week *after* Easter off so I originally booked the 4/19 sailing...then I googled the school calendar because I remembered there were 3 options out there for people to vote on and sure enough, it appears the 3 choices for Spring Break in 2014 is the week *prior* to Easter so I had to quickly change the cruise to 4/12/14 before I hung up. I just pray this is the week so we can settle in and count down and pay it off!
