When your booking a "theme" cruise obviously your buying more than 2 tickets, because your including children. This is the stuff kids want, why should it cost almost double ?? That's why its not selling, a cruise is a cruise regardless of the 'celebrity' appearances! All cruises have tons of activities, just because you call it "Nick" you can charge more? not fair!
Last year I received a direct email from RCCL in July, 3 weeks before sailing, for an offer for $299, inside, $399 outside, and $499 for balcony pp, on the Mariner of the Seas. It was for the Nickelodean Cruise. We had no intentions on going until the price dropped dramatically. We had a great time, and even at that price the cruise was 1500 pax below capacity.
The Nick idea is just plain bad. Leave the cartoon people to Disney.
