Wave season (cruise line sales) starting early this year

Cruise line special offers have started to arrive daily in my email inbox. There seems to be some wonderful discounts available to the FLEXIBLE and I say again FLEXIBLE traveler. The cruise lines are attempting to move cabin space on lower demand sailing dates so please forget the holiday season sailings.

Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL) just posted a 4 day/3 night Bahamas cruise starting at $99.00 per person. That’s $33.00 a day for your room, meals, beverages, entertainment and more. Please note that this is just cruise fare and there are extra fees like port charges and fuel supplements but even after these are factored in these are some real sweet deals.

Some of the specials may be last minute while other are available on select sailings for the balance of 2008 and early 2009.

Contact your local travel agent with a range of dates and they will be glad to search out savings for you. For the “do-it-yourselfers” visit the individual cruise lines web sites and check out their savings and specials.

Happy travels! Got questions? Email
