Cruise bargains

I regularly receive emails from readers asking when they should book to ensure that they get the very best price for their cruise. Honestly it is almost impossible to predict “when” but there are some guidelines that you can apply that will help you in finding a cruise value.  

A current cruise line price tactic is to offer an early booking non refundable fare. They are telling me that this is the rock bottom price for the specific sailing and any further discounting will not occur. Time will tell if this is true especially when cruise line revenue management folks start looking at soft bookings 60 days or less prior to sailing.  

Check back soon for more tips on locating value priced cruise vacations. 

Be kind to your travel agent & get out of town!
