I didn't book my upcoming cruise on opening day because we switched cruises. We have a 5A booked for 4 on 4/28. When we booked, it was $2600 but we paid around $2300 with our OBB discount. Our category is sold out but a 5c is $2900 and at the time we booked there was around $200 between the A and C so our cruise has risen $500 just since we booked.

3 Night Disney Dream May 2013 Trip report W/Navigators Link is broken so "google" "Our dreamy anniversary cruise"

Wow! There have been some dramatic price increases! It pays to book a year in advance, and do so with an OBB discount!

On 2/27/13 we reserved our 9/20/14 Southern Caribbean cruise on the Magic for $2,042.44 (Cat 11C). Now it's $2938.44 on the DCL site. Our price did include the 10% off, but still quite a difference!

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.

If I'm reading this thread and others correctly it appears the Easter, Spring Break sailings have the most increase from opening day price. Some of these increase are easily 60%. Insane. I feel for the folks booking at this price tier.

And I thought our fall booking went up a lot. Not, compared this this Easter nonsense.

So if you plan to sail Easter, Spring Break, Thanksgiving, Xmas, NYE, Summer, Valentines Day book opening day if possible , or else pony up $$$$$$$. I feel I generally have the order of most increases correct I believe.

Corrections always welcomed though of course.
