Yes the Easter craziness continues afterwards too.

We booked our cruise 26 April 2014 7 night Fantasy WC almost a year ago. I just looked now and our room (category 4a) has increased $1800. WOW!!

I never realised prices go up closer to the cruise, thought they would drop to fill those last few cabins.

Learn something new everyday here on DIS :-)

If it's not a prime time cruise, they do offer discounts. With holiday cruises & summer months those aren't needed to fill the ships.

Our current category is sold out on our next cruise. Booking an available room now at rack rate is over double what we locked in on opening day.

Booked our 5/31 Fantasy cruise opening day @ $2,100 includes $200 OBC. Checked Cruise Fish sold out at $3,610. Based on recent changes I think Memorial Day weekend will be a black out date for 2015.

We booked our DReam cruise way after opening day because we originally booked a jan 2014 cruise on our our jan 13 cruise but then changed our minds a few months later and switched to spring break Mar 2014. We are paying about 2650 for 4 of us in a 9b. I thought that was alot because I have cruised on a 7 night for just about that price and done other four and five nights for much less on off peak times. But, I just checked now and everything is sold out except for 11b and c and it is 5800!!! For a four night inside stateroom! So that is more then double what I paid....CRAZY!

Wow - looked to day. We are in a 4A now. There are none of those left. for our 8/2. The 4C is now about $1400 more than we paid for our 4A.

So far about 800.00 but since it is thanksgiving I suspect it will be going much higher. All Inside Rooms are gone.

Our med cruise (venice to barcelona) Cat 4b is no longer available. Cat 5b with 1 child less is 20% more. (If you could add a 3rd child into a Cat 5b, it would be 30% more than the 4b.)
