someone can correct me if im wrong but they do not use real-time exchange rates, they use last qtr end's exchange rate which can be a +/-

It's definitely not real time but the gap is fairly large at the moment.

Did the RCCL Bahamian cruise last March Break and it wasn’t hot through the Florida to Bahamas area the whole time. And they skipped porting at their own island because it was too windy for the tender boats, the one where your beach/food is free, lots of people not happy. Apparently they do that a lot until their port has finished construction (no tenders required).

Did the Southern Caribbean Cruise the year before that and it was amazing.

We’ve done the Western Caribbean cruise a couple of times through Disney in Jan, also not very hot. I imagine Eastern Caribbean would be very summery though.

Total was ~$4170 which is not bad for 11 days for a family of four.

Strangely, I priced out the same cruise in late Sept and got both kids sail free and 60% off second guest but the total was only a little bit less at $4150. (though there was a bonus of $200 spending credit)

I was looking for at this cruise is this from Hawaii to Vancouver? I am pretty busy with work at that time.

I just booked a inside room balcony, for 2 adults and 2 kids on allure of the seas for $1900 us. It was weird it never came up when I searched in lowest to highest balcony. Just happened to click and saw the and booked.

I think it's totally random, we did a Europe cruise in Sept and I checked price in both cad and us and the exchange was around 1.2.

I checked my recent cruise and it was around 1.3x, I just went with us $

Are you meaning to say you didn't see it in the kids sail free promo link?
Its there... If you set the date filter to May 2019 and go to the third page, you'll find it there.

Costco Travel has the same prices and has a cash card offer too. You need to call in though. prices on the website don't have the kids can sale free offer.

Thanks @michiebaby for the suggestions. We just booked the one in December. Hopefully the weather is good.

Looking at Apr 6 on independence, the exchange is about the same unfortunately.

Are you using cruisecompete? What type of room you are you looking at?
