This Week’s Handpicked Deals
National Cruise Vacation Month
October is National Cruise Vacation Month for a good reason…demand for cruises is at one of the lowest points of the year, and the cruise lines are anxious to boost demand. The result is great deals for people who’ll cruise this winter and next year, and who can make the decision NOW! These are generally fleet-wide offers so you can get the destination, ship and accommodations you want along with combinations of sale pricing, onboard credits, upgrades and reduced deposits.
While some cruise lines will offer sales throughout October, the majority of them will be offered during the last week of the month—October 21st to the 27th. Give us a call if you have something in mind and we’ll do the shopping for your, and keep an eye on SeaMail because we’ll keep you informed of the offers as they become available.
You don’t have to wait for the above sales! For a limited time, we’re letting you double-dip on savings and onboard credit when you book a Royal Caribbean cruise from CruiseDeals.com!
