The World's Largest Cruise Sale is On!

This week, the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) is holding the first-ever, week-long, World's Largest Cruise Sale. Every one of CLIA's cruise line members is offering travelers additional discounts or value-added incentives for new bookings made from October 17-23.
Many of the specials include shipboard credits, which are as good as, cash onboard and can be used to pay for almost anything not included in the upfront cost of the cruise, including alcoholic beverages, boutique items, spa treatments and shore excursions.

In past years, the sale was called World's Largest Cruise Night and lasted only one day, but the response overwhelmed reservation centers at some cruise lines so the event has been expanded to seven days this year. It's a great time to book a cruise that departs during the remainder of 2011 or the first quarter of 2012.
