Executives of major cruise lines held a panel discussion at the annual Cruise One and Cruises Inc. national conference, where they addressed agents' concerns regarding last-minute cruise sales. "On behalf of Royal Caribbean, we truly are trying to have the very lowest price out, so that as we get closer to the sailing, the price is actually increasing not decreasing," said Vicki Freed, senior vice president at Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. Executives also encouraged travel sellers to push for earlier bookings from clients to maintain price integrity.
