On Deck: What’s coming Up Next Week
One Day Price Drops
Tuesday is a great day to book last minute cruises because Royal Caribbean and Celebrity will drop rates on a handful of sailings for one day only! I suggest taking advantage of these cruise deals because they always feature some highly discounted rates. But definitely jump on these when they are available Tuesday, because once Wednesday comes around the rates will go right back up to where they came from. Check out my favorite deals from each cruise line below:
10-Nt Canada cruise departing September 21st from Bayonne aboard the Brilliance of the Seas:
-Inside staterooms (category K) will drop $610 per person to $569
-Ocean view staterooms (category G) will drop $610 per person $769
