Did you see Priceline’s Cruise special yet? Royal Caribbean has some cruises for $159 for 4 nights. Carnival has 3 nights starting at $99.
The deals are good through Friday. If I had any vacation time left, I’d be on board tomorrow!
And if you worry about buying now only to find lower fares tomorrow… Royal Caribbean is now offering a “Best Price Guarantee.” Passengers who book early and later find a lower fare advertised by Royal Caribbean for the same ship, sail date and cabin category can receive the full difference in price as an onboard credit. Any dollars not spent onboard will be refunded at the end of the cruise.
The Best Price Guarantee is good up until 72 hours prior to sailing. Passengers who find a better deal must contact Royal Caribbean or their travel agent to request the credit.
Carnival Cruise Line has a similar guarantee as part of its “Early Saver” rates.
