Three Good Cruise Deals For Your Holiday Shopping Pleasure

We don’t often have much to say here about specific promotions, offers and pricing programs being offered by cruise lines.  After all, there is always some sort of ‘deal’ going on from one line or another, making finding the best ones something to talk to your travel agent about.  Still, the holidays are fast approaching.  The idea of putting a cruise ship under the Christmas tree is a viable ‘this takes care of the whole family’ gift option.   We did that for years with our kids and also threw in birthdays, anniversaries, special events and more as reasons to skip land-based spending, save the money and be able to afford more cruising.  Take a look at these good cruise deals, presented for your holiday shopping pleasure.
