Deals to Jump on Now:
Royal Caribbean has a 4th of July Sale starting Friday, with 39 voyages last minute summer voyages where rates have been dropped between $120 and $1,250 for 5 days only! Similar to Royal Caribbean’s Tuesday Sales Event’s, rates will go right back up after the sale is over, so be prepared to act fast and book by July 5th! I strongly urge you to take advantage of, the savings are phenomenal. Of course I always like to give you what I think are the best picks with the biggest savings so I went through pricing from Thursday and compared the rates for the sale and picked out my two favorite. You can check out the full list of sailings here
September 2nd Rhapsody of the Seas 7 Night Alaska. Rates for an Oceanview Category F have dropped from $985 to $649—a savings of $336 per person, or $672 per stateroom!
September 1st Vision of the Seas 15-Night Stockholm to Istanbul. Rates for Inside cabins have been dropped $450 per person from $1,249 to an incredible $799- just $53 a day! Ocean view cabins have been dropped $470 to $999, only $67 a day.
Holiday Vacation without the Holiday Rates? Yes, it’s possible…with an open mind.
I am constantly watching pricing trends and taking note of what the best deals are. I have to let you in on what I’ve been finding; the best deals for this year are for cruises departing after Thanksgiving and before Christmas. Rates are some of the lowest of the year during this time- under $100 a day, and on many we are offering between $50 and $150 onboard credits!
So why not take your holiday vacation between the holidays! If you think about it, after all the entertaining, cooking and cleaning, it is the perfect time to getaway and relax. Not to mention, with the rates that I am seeing, you could truly have a worry free vacation.
I’ve selected what my top picks and what I think are some of the best deals for rest of the year. You can also search all cruises in November and December here.
December 3rd Carnival Liberty 7-nt Caribbean from Miami $339, only $48 per day and Ocean view cabins start from only $399 or $57 a day!
