Oddly, while October was National Cruise Month, November onward looks to have more attractive cruise deals available. No telling why. That makes this a great week to begin a recurring feature here, Extraordinary Cruise Deals This Week. Look for special offers, discounted prices, bonus value deals and more every Sunday for the week ahead. Let’s start sailing through the best values we can find with extraordinary cruise deals this week.
- 7 for 7– Check Windstar Cruises every Thursday to get new, limited-time deals on amazing voyages…but be ready to buy: the offers are valid for 7 days or until suites and staterooms sell out. Click here to see this week’s extraordinary 7 for 7 cruise deals. See More
- Windstar’s The Caribbean Is Open offer features deep discounts on select Caribbean sailings (like less than half price) and include $200 onboard credit and complimentary shipwide Wi-Fi.
- Free Air + Pre-Cruise Hotel with Tahiti Cruises- On 7, 10 or 11-night sailings, the price includes r/t air from LAX to Papeete via Air Tahiti Nui, overnight hotel at Le Méridien Papeete Hotel both before and after sailing and transfers all around.
- Solo Travelers- One of the few cruise lines that go beyond an occasional discount for solo travelers, Windstar Cruises publishes a generous list of applicable departures.
Carnival Cruise Line
Carnival Cruise Line always has competitive pricing that is hard to beat for a big ship Caribbean cruise. Also consistent at Carnival, a year-round Military discount, sweetened for November and Veteran’s Day. A special booking promotion for active and retired military personnel runs through November 14, providing a $50 onboard credit per cabin plus a two-category upgrade and reduced deposits from $99 per person, at Carnival’s highly attractive Early Saver rates. In addition, guests who qualify for the promotion can book up to two additional staterooms with the same bonuses and pricing.
Viking River Cruises has a number of special offers that follow a familiar pricing structure with 2-for-1 savings for all along with discounted (or $0) cruise line airfare arrangements, round trip from over 150 cities.
Right now is a good time to be scouring the offerings of Princess Cruises…in preparation for Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals…especially Cyber Monday deals. Last year saw $1 deposits, bonus onboard credit and ridiculously low pricing on unique sailings. Still, while we wait, we can always play games with Princess, also familiarizing ourselves with the Ocean Medallion technology that will automatically open the door to our stateroom as we approach, track what we think, see and like in ways George Orwell could not have even imagined in 1984. No, really. And this is actually a very good thing.
Royal Caribbean International
Royal Caribbean International is sticking with a winner in November, featuring offers similar to those that have resonated with cruise travelers in the past.
