Can I expect this cruise price to drop even lower?

Hi all, my family of 7 is looking for a vacation to go on the first week of August. We found a cruise leaving very close to our hometown, the port is Boston and the cruise travels to Bermuda.

Here is the cruise details:
http://cruises.orbitz.com/sc.do?d=07...atecode=&dsc=y

We are looking to go August 3 to August 10

We are looking to get two of the cheapest, inside cabins.

Cruises that are leaving earlier seem to cost less, like the ones that set sail at the end of this week ( which doesn't work for us). If I wait, is it likly that the costs will drop even lower for our week?

Thanks!

You never know anymore what cruise prices will do. Sometimes at the last minute they will lower prices to book those empty cabins. However, if you really want to go to Bermuda I wouldn't wait because the cruise might sell out. As I said, it's a crap shoot. Those prices are really pretty good so book if you want to go. You will save lots w/ no airfare. You will need your passports also.

My friends just did this same cruise in June. I will tell you that she said the cabins are very small so you might check out the cabin dimensions if you have a family of 7 for 2 cabins. Insides tend to be smaller than outsides. It is free style dining so you can eat when you want.

Good luck.

Very hard to say. Its possible you will get a sale towards the end if the cruise is not seeling well but if it is the prices may go up. Keep checking every day but if I was you I would book asap. The time is near! Good luck. Larry

If you are planning a cruise to Bermuda (or anywhere with a port of call outside the US) make sure all those in your party have current passports.

This is a site others have recommended to me. www.cruisefish.net
I've not used it much. Maybe it will be useful for you? I've found, on Bermuda cruises in particular, that they tend to go up as the date nears. It's very hard to tell.
My biggest worry...missing out on vacation because I didn't book one.

Here's a tool for cruise price predicitions:

http://allthingscruise.com/future_price_predictions/

This should help you decide when to buy. I'd suggest that you also try http://www.cruisecompete.com. Here you select your cruise, and multiple agencies compete to offer the best deal. There's a good chance that someone has group space on NCL at a lower rate than you can get via Orbitz.

Good luck!
