So many people are posting that they are getting price drops on currently booked cruises. Could it be to encourage people to cruise or for RC to have to give back less in FCC?

We are booked for a Oct and a Nov 2020 cruise.   Booked over a year ago and as of today the prices are close to double.

Could be. Could also be the people who are paid by the cruise lines to ensure all is positive right now. We all know there are lots on here.....

In my opinion they are trying to hold on to the bookings for their balance sheet.  They want to look good to the banks that have loaned them money recently.  It's the stereotypical "bird in the bush" situation:  ANY booked cruise with a deposit is better than NO booked cruise and no deposit.

 

They are lowering prices and being flexible with existing bookings to keep the payments on their books.  It's good for the consumers who want to cruise.
