Cruise "Wave" season specials

For years February was “Wave Season” a month when cruise lines offered special deals to fill their ships. This year it’s started as the cruise discounts continue to roll in. There are values aplenty these days. Here are some examples of the special promotions:

· Savings of 60 -70 % off of regular tariff (brochure price)
· Kids sail free
· Cabin upgrades
· Hundreds of dollars in board ship credits
· Reduced deposits amounts
· Purchase a qualifying Disney land package and you’ll get a free 3 day cruise

Now is the time to vacation at sea. Today is the time to conduct a business meeting at sea. How about a family or class reunion at sea? Take your garden club members and explore the gardens of Europe or the Caribbean. These possibilities are endless.

Today is the time to cruise. My upcoming posts I’ll be talking about the cruise industry, another major component of the travel and tourism industry.
