As a rule of thumb. I'd say that cruise prices start to go up around April (spring break) and don't go down until around Labor Day. There might be some price drops during that time but in general prices are higher. Better prices during the period between Labor Day and March. Higher when school's out.
Our price went down twice for our Cove last week, now there are no more 7A's available.
We also had a price drop for our girl's interior, but now that price is up $100 pp. If nothing changes between now and next month, I'll feel good knowing we got the lowest possible price for our rooms.

Which speak of that, I do not see it being any cheaper. "Their price" is always the same as Carnival's from what I've checked into.

i noticed yesterday when going over notes for my current sailing (when recording another small OBC ES) the majority of price drops/sales were on Thursdays. Anybody else have this happen on their cruise?
Yup all my price drops were a Thursday except 1 I think. Probably just a coincidence though.
