NCL announced that it will be increasing fares across the board starting April 1st. Other than its a great strategy to increase bookings in slow months, it shows how strong the industry is doing. The fact that it can support increase in total cruise fare of prices is a good indication. Although the sudden increase in the price of oil might negate any gains made through this. We’ll have to see.

    I guess I am confused… how would increasing fares be a good strategy to bring increased bookings? It seems the opposite would be true. I can’t imagine many people saying, “I wasn’t going to go on a cruise before because it was so cheap, but now that they raised the price, I’m going!”
