For almost a year, Martha Lester of CruiseDeals.com has been reporting about upcoming cruise sales and price drops every Friday. CruiseSource is the only site that gives detailed weekly analysis of upcoming price drops.
Martha’s posts are helping cruisers save hundreds of dollars and in some cases thousands of dollars. Many of the biggest price drops only last 1 to 2 days. By getting advanced notice, you are able to ask for time off, check for flights, make babysitting arrangements, etc. so you are able to book when the cruise sale starts.
Thanks to Martha’s weekly posts and our other cruise price reporting, CruiseSource was recommended last week by the NY Times as a resource to help you get the best cruise deals. The NY Time’s article titled ‘For Cruise Deals, the Time Is Now’ focused on the tactics the cruise lines are using to sell excess inventory caused by the recent booking slow-down. We were honored to share some of our research and insights for the NY Times article.
At CruiseDeals.com, we are constantly monitoring cruise pricing. We have excellent relationships with the cruise lines and get advanced notice of their needs to fill excess inventory. We share this info in real-time on CruiseSource and Twitter. As we shared with the NY Times, Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and Celebrity cruise lines are utilizing aggressively discounted resident rates and senior rates to sell excess inventory .
We recently shared the Top 5 Resident Rate Specials here on CruiseSource.[box]Don’t miss out on the best Cruise Price Reporting on the internet CLICK HERE: to subscribe to CruiseSource![/box]
