Costa Rates just reduced
Experience Europe in Italian style for unheard of rates! Costa just dropped rates on a bunch of fall and winter cruises throughout Europe. What were incredible rates already have now been dropped even lower! Offering an unbelievable value for a great product; Costa is Europe’s #1 cruise line. In some cases, the rates were dropped over 50%! These are the kind of rates you want to act on, so don’t hesitate! I went through some of the pricing before the price drop and here are the best deals that I found:
November 5th Victoria 7-Night Mediterranean from Venice: Insides cabins start from only $392– a $107 drop per person from $499 and only $56 a day! Outside cabins have been dropped $163 per person from $749 to $586 and Balcony cabins dropped $167 per person from $899 to $732.

See all the sailings that apply and the onboard credit amounts here.
I did go through pricing from Friday and pick out some of my favorite deals from the promotion. Please bear in mind that rates could change by the time the promotion begins on Monday. Here is my handpicked selection:
September 15th Silhouette 12-Night Holy Land: Currently, you can book a balcony cabins for the price of an ocean view; only $1099! Plus, book between July 25th and August 25th and receive $100 per stateroom onboard credit.
Tuesday Price Drops
Royal Caribbean and Celebrity will drop rates on a selection of sailings, usually departing in the next few months, for Tuesday only! Sometimes I can’t believe my eyes at the huge amounts some of these rates will drop. I always advise you to be prepared to act on these limited time offers. Trust me; rates really do go right back up on Wednesday—and we always have someone calling in on Wednesday thinking they can still get the rate. . . but they can’t! Here are my picks from each cruise line:
September 19th Celebrity Constellation 12-Night Mediterranean from Istanbul: Inside category 9 cabins will drop $1,050 per person from $1,849 to only $799. This is only $67 a day! Or, book a Veranda cabin for just around $100 a day. Rates will drop $1,980 per person from $3,179 to $1,199.
August 28th Allure of the Seas 7-Night Western Caribbean from Fort Lauderdale: Ocean view cabins will drop $390 per person from $1269 to just $879! This is an incredible rate for a summer cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s newest ship. Or, for just $40 more per person, enjoy a balcony cabin! Rates for balconies will drop $230 per person from $1149 to $919!
