How to Get a Cruise Deal

If you’re planning a cruise, note that the economy has changed the industry and there may be excellent values to be had with a little planning.

Choose your timing carefully.  Cruising in shoulder (off-peak) seasons may find you deals with up to 60% off.

Check a travel agent for specials.  Many agents may have access to specials.

Pick your cabin.  Sometimes moving one deck down may offer better pricing, without sacrificing views.

Here’s the best time to book:

Caribbean: November – March

Transatlantic: June – July

South America: April – May and November – December

North America and Europe:  June – August
