Achieve Great Savings - Take A Last Minute Cruise - Articles Surfing
Don't be misled - a "last minute cruise" can actually be booked 90 days in advance. But booking at the last moment can be an advantage as sometimes the cruise lines will try to fill their unsold cabins by offering them at a cheaper rate. Provided you have the time and are flexible with your travel dates, then don't think twice about booking your cruise at the last minute.
If the cabins remain vacant as the cruise date approaches, the cruise line will start lowering the price. For instance, you may be able to book a six-night package on a Caribbean cruise for just $499 per head in the month of October. But a last minute cruise for nine days in September will cost $659, which is a $10 per day difference.
Many people associate cruises with the open ocean, but there are also river cruises that offer great last-minute deals.
For those who are reluctant to leave the country, taking a cruise down the mighty Mississippi is a great alternative and for others exploring the mysteries of the Amazon will be a wonderful experience. Cruising the beautiful Hawaiian Islands also remains a favorite and the Galapagos Islands are something which you should certainly not miss.
Booking a last minute cruise deal on any of the major cruise lines is still the best bargain you can get. They sometimes even sell a cabin for $250 if the room goes unoccupied till the very last minute.
You can also check out the cruise line's website as it is one of the best places to find last minute cruise deals. Even the better staterooms such as balcony cabins or suites are offered at a discount if they appear to be going empty as the cruise date approaches. If you are flexible with your travel dates and are willing to avoid the peak seasons, then a last minute cruise will also allow you to achieve great savings without compromising on quality!
