Looks like just another politically correct move.....and it make money at the same time.

We would NEVER purchase it at the old price but what I find fascinating is how could Princess think people would even consider paying that much for it. Shocked
I doubt if this package will sell at all.
Someone at Princess headquarters came up with another brilliant money maker idea.
I can't wait to talk to one of my bartender friends this Nov to find out more details.

I never buy it either; but I think the increase is very unfair to those who do.  I am also afraid it is preview of future all around beverage increases.

I note AIBP...'All Inclusive Beverage Package, now called Premier AIBP has gone up to US$59.99 plus of course the 15% gratuity.

I never buy them, not worth it to us. But those who do would need to drink 12 vodkas per day to break even.  Huh

We just share a bottom end $30 bottle of wine in the MDR and have a drink in the Elite Lounge or another bar pre dinner.  Normally get away with $50 or $60 per day for the two of us for booze.  Sometimes we don't even drink the entire bottle of wine, but keep it for the next night. Tongue

I'm seeing some of the bridge cams are dated August 23 here and the same ones are dated later on the Princess site.  Example Majestic and Sea both show August 23 but on Princess it's as of today.

From CNBC:
-Carnival downgraded as Hurricane Irma and other events hurt demand

Credit Suisse lowered its rating for Carnival shares to neutral from outperform, saying the cruise company is facing a more difficult demand environment.
The firm's analyst cited the geopolitical tensions in the Korean peninsula, the August terror attack in Barcelona and Hurricane Irma, "which has caused significant damage across the Eastern Caribbean."

Interesting, but not unexpected. This is also more of a market correction after the spectacular performance of the last few years.
IMHO.

I booked that particular cruise because of the stops in Antigua and Dominican Republic since I have not been to those islands yet, but if they changed the stops I wouldn't mind at all (unless the stops where changed to some of the western Mexico ports like Costa Maya and Cozumel. I was just to those ports and really didn't care for them).

I was wondering the same thing. I have cruise booked (and paid for) for January 20th going to St. Thomas; Antigua; St. Maarten and Dominican Republic. I haven't heard from Princess yet but would not be surprised if the cruise was cancelled.
Or just substituted islands.
Does it really make a difference to you?
If the cruise is outside of the no-penalty cancellation window, alterations to the itinerary change the product/price balance. To many, this  won't matter, but to others, it will change everything. Cruises that are within the no-penalty time frame, fall under the cruise lines ability to substitute ports if necessary. If a fire-sale appears for eastern Caribbean cruises, we'll have our answer. There are a significant number of cruise lines selling these destinations, so even a 'blip' of cruise cancellations will be profound, as the demographics change to oversupply.

To be honest about it, we're at the point where we don't care what islands we visit on a Caribbean cruise.
I realize that people do cruise for specific places to see but as lone as they substitute a different one for the damaged place it's fine by us.
I actually choose a cruise based upon the time of year and not where they go.
If enough people shy away from cruising for this season it might even mean cheaper prices for a while. (or more incentive's)
