Looking for a bargain cruise? The New York Times sounds the alarm that cruise lines are drawing the line in 2010. While deep discounts, free upgrades, and other perks helped fill berths in 2009, ship operators hope they can lure passengers back in 2010 without so many bargains. What does that mean for the Cruise adventurer? Book early to get the best deals.
Is it too late to book a great spring break cruise or something on the Atlantic coast this fall? Of course not. In fact, we’re still in the middle of what the industry calls “Wave Season” when great deals for trips throughout 2010 are available. But those bargains will be vanishing soon as staterooms fill up.
You might be surprised at what cruises are leaving from a port near you.
Thinking of taking that Canada-New England cruise on the Norwegian Jewel. Here’s a video that will give you some idea of what to expect. Video was taken last June on a cruise of the Baltics.
