In checking prices this morning I found reductions on 3 of the 4 cruises currently booked.

 

Interesting to me was the closest one, April of 2021, increased slightly.

 

Happy sailing.

Lucky you! Of the 4 I have booked, they are either the same or slightly more!

My current balcony is the same, but I'm looking at the suites....there's a "$200 off" sale.

 

 

 

The rate is Suite Life Early Saver, but all three cabins with a price reduction are spa balcony cabins.  My granddaughters love the Cloud 9 spa...

ETA...spoke to TA....he said "not worth it"

 

 

I would book a suite if good price on royal but not on carnival. Ccl you get no perks. Rcl JS and up get 2 loyalty pts. Full suite and up concierge lounge is nice and mixed drinks free at night, some have wine during the day... just more perks. Level up fast with junior suites or up. Solo gets 3 loyalty pts.

 

Carnival being solo just bigger room not worth it for just me. $200 off isn't enough to tempt me.

It wasn't for the perks (food and drink are wasted on us) but for the extra space and whirlpool tub. 

 

I originally booked an inside spa (Canada in Sept...no balcony needed).  DH wanted a balcony "just in case we're trapped at sea".  So we're in a Lido Balcony.  Having "saved" so much by missing "4 cruises we would have taken" my "being economical" is on-hold...lol.  TA thought it was a waste of $$$ to upgrade.

 

Oh well...I'll put my "unrealized savings" into the casino budget.

I only take showers.  Tub wasted on me. The extra room is nice if I'm with someone but not solo. 

 

Like I'd only do spa category if dream class ship, for the nicer spa on dream class.

I was just going to upgrade to spa balcony....but then I remembered:

With "the covid situation"...even if there is a vaccine....and even if ships sail....do I really want to get into a whirlpool with a bunch of strangers?  Nah....I'm staying put.

It's surprising to me I got reductions on 3 separate cruises and so few others are getting them.

 

I will point out when checking prices, the first Early Saver fare that popped up showed no change.  Under "More Options" a second Suite Life Early Saver rate code PEG was listed at a reduced price.

 

In each case I forfeited a promotional OBC, but price matching to the reduced fare was greater than the loss of OBC by $50.

How is that relevant?  I live in Florida and COVID-19 news is the top story every night on the local news. Have not heard them mention anything about any other diseases, including the ones you mentioned. 

That is correct.  Why is that?  More kids died of influenza this year than COVID. My actual point is to the poster to is waiting for COVID to go away, is that we have always cruised with various types of communicable diseases and shared hot tubs

It looks like I may be able to get a little bit out of my Mardi Gras next summer. But Nov and Dec are sold out. Feb is up 30%! And it's still a good deal. Crazy how cheap I got that one. April my class is sold out. And my Sailabration is up like $100.

I tried to a "mock" booking for MG for December 26th 2021 and there are rooms available. are you seeing sold out for 2021??

Understand your point. I don’t think COVID-19 is going away any time soon.

No. My reference to December was this December on Vista. The only one I specified a ship on was next summer on Mardi Gras. Nov, Dec, Feb all Vista. April is Freedom. Sailabration is Glory.
