$28 a day for a cruise?
Yes. It is rare, but RIGHT NOW there is a 4-night Royal Caribbean Summer Cruise selling for $109 per person [$28/day]. See Facebook Post below.
I’ve never seen a Royal Caribbean Summer cruise selling for under $30 per day. This tells me there will be more opportunities in the Fall/Winter for similar deals. Here are 4 easy steps to booking a $28/day cruise:
Four steps to booking $28/day cruises:
#1. You must be flexible: If you want to land a deal below $30 per day this fall, you will need to be able to cruise within 5 – 10 days notice. You will need to be flexible on the itinerary and cruise ship. Most of the Sub $30 per day deals will be on Bahamas Cruises. You will also need to be flexible on the cruise line. This fall, you will need to be willing to cruise on Royal Caribbean, Carnival or Norwegian Cruise Line… Any of which is an incredible value.
#2. You must act fast when the rates drop: The cruise lines are dropping rates last minute to fill unsold space and experienced cruisers are watching and waiting. If you do not act fast, you may miss out on the deal. When you get alerted to a price drop call and get a free courtesy hold while you finalize your plans.
#3. In order to act fast, you have to be the first to get the deal alerts: This week, when the Enchantment of the Seas 4-night Bahamas Cruise dropped to $109 per person [$28 per day], the first notified about the price drop were fans of the CruiseDeals.com Facebook Page. See Post:
The cruise lines do not typically send out these types of alerts because it upsets the people already booked. And most agencies do not want to share these type of deals because there is very little commission in a $109 cruise. But, CruiseDeals.com shares these types of deals all the time on Facebook, Twitter, and in our weekly email [SEAMail].
These real-time deal alerts on multiple channels is why CruiseDeals.com has been recommended by ABCnews, NY Times, Yahoo! Finance, US News & World Reports, and many more.
#4. Make sure you see the Alert on Facebook: Did you know Facebook does not show you all the posts from pages that you like? Facebook wants businesses to pay money to reach their fans. Which is fine, Facebook needs to make money. But, it is tough to spend any money advertising $28/day cruise.
So, if you are serious about landing the best last-minute cruise deals then you have to make sure you see the CruiseDeals.com deal alerts.
How to see all Facebook Cruise Deal Alerts:
To make sure you get notified on Facebook when CruiseDeals.com posts a deal alert go to http://facebook.com/cruisedeals hover over the LIKE button.

This Fall if you follow the 4 steps above, you should be able to book a 4 – 5 night Bahamas or Caribbean cruise deal for under $30 per day.

Important Note: cruise prices are marketed without taxes included. The $28/day per person includes port charge but is before taxes. And due to port charges, cruise prices cannot go any lower because the $28/day is mostly port charges.
