As noted by jollyjones, I got one of those fantastic deals on in 2009. I could hardly believe it. My 12-night Greek Isles cruise ended up costing less than a similar one would have been with Royal Caribbean. I got 2-for-1 on early booking rate, with another $1k discount, and a 25% single supplement. It was a great cruise and a lovely ship. But, I don't know if such a deal will come along again. I'm keeping watch though...
