Travel bargains galore!

In the past I’ve mentioned that we’re in a travel buying season with plenty of distressed pricing on most products. Cruises, tours, hotel rooms, rental car, rail passes and airfares are at all time lows to many destinations.

I discovered a 5 day Carnival Cruise Line departing from Mobile AL in the late fall of 2009 for $30.00 per person per day, taxes and cruise fee extra. This rate includes your cabin, all meals, transportation to ports of call, shipboard entertainment, free daytime babysitting and much more. Of course travel during peak periods like summer vacation season or holidays are not as attractively priced.

This fare is lower than the discounted travel industry rate.

At this price you can’t afford to stay home.

Happy travels! Got questions email
