Cruises - Travel Deals

Cruises keep getting cheaper

carnival-cruisesWhile I am personally not a big fan of cruises or cruising vacations, I haven’t been able to help but notice the plethora of absolutely fantastic deals on cruises out there right now. While it is certainly no secret that the struggling economy has been hard on the travel industry, it seems cruise lines are having to practically give away spots on their ships to keep people cruising through the recession. This includes specials on Carnival with 3-4 day cruises starting at just $129 and offers for up to $240 cash back when you book online. Spectacular “Fun Ship” Cruise Specials

Caribbean vacations are at their lowest prices of the year

beach caribbyIt makes sense if you think about it, but the fall is definitely the best time of year to visit the Caribbean if you want to save some money: CARIBBEAN Travel Deals

This site is offering 3 and 4-night cruises to the Bahamas starting under $200 per person, as well as great deals on all-inclusive resorts all over the area. Islands like the Bahamas and Grand Cayman tend to have the cheapest places, but all the resorts are offering their best prices of the year, simply because fall is the time of year when the fewest people are thinking of a vacation in the Caribbean, even though the weather is great. If you took the same trip in January it would probably cost double. It’s your money so you decide how to spend it, but I prefer to take two great and cheap trips instead of one trip at peak season.

How do they do it?

You can Practically Cruise the Hawaiian Islands for Free

ssminnow.jpgNow that Black Friday that dreaded shopping day after Thanksgiving is over, we can all once again come out of are self imposed shopping exile and resume our search for travel bargains. Today’s fabulous find is a deal that will net you 90% off the normal price of a Norwegian Cruise Lines cruise of Hawaii. Now, I know that you are a smart traveler and you would never actually pay full price for a cruise since you know that there is a never ending sale on cruises, but even with your superior knowledge, good looks and charm, I think you’ll agree that 90% off is quite the savings.

The cruise departs from Honolulu and takes you to three other Hawaiian Islands before returning you safely to your starting point. Along the way you’ll have ample opportunity to enjoy all that Hawaii has to offer, while feasting on wonderful food and relaxing by the ship’s pool. A three hour cruise it is not, but a seven-night thing of beauty it is. The deal is good for trips in December, so grab this last minute bargain before the clock stops ticking.

You won’t need to Pack Chewing Gum for Singapore

bubble.jpgSingapore is kind of a confusing place. Is it a city? It is a state? Is it a city-state? Probably all of the above, but one thing it is for certain is an interesting place to travel. Between the immaculate streets, draconian rules about chewing gum and spitting, world class restaurants and shops, and sunburned western businesspeople running around in suits in hot weather, the place has a lot of things going for it. If you have ever thought about going to Singapore and Malaysia, you might want to take a look at these package deals. Could be a good way to get around and see the sights.

Cruise from Boston to Bermuda

cocktail03.jpgTom Cruise has been in the headlines a lot recently, but we can assure you that he won’t be sailing with you if you decide to take advantage of this nifty deal to cruise from Boston to Bermuda and back.

Instead of worrying about being caught up in the paparazzi, you can sit back and enjoy some cocktails on the high seas. Once you reach Bermuda you can snorkel, golf or foment a coup. Whatever you end up doing, it is sure to be fun and it is sure to be in warmer weather than you’ll find in New England in late October.

So good ahead and be a Hollywood superstar by signing up for this Priceline deal. Fame is fleeting so you might as well get on board for the ride.

It is Ok to Drink the Water

locmap_baja.jpgIf you look at a map of North America you’ll see that dropping down south of California is a peninsula called Baja California. It doesn’t look like much on a map, but the place is full of beauty, charm and pots of gold. Ok, I made up that last part, but I would never lie about the absolute killerness (if that’s a word) of Baja.

You should check it out for yourself. Southwest Airlines is offering some cruise deals that will give you a taste of what the area has to offer. Practice your Spanish, hit the links, or float in the pool and never leave the ship. However you choose to spend your vacation, you’ll have a new appreciation for that droopy place on the map below California.

Your Cruise will End Better than the Titanic

1_22_titanic_dicaprio.jpgHere’s your chance to experience the glory of the open seas. The wind rushing through your hair, the dolphins swimming by your side, Leonardo DiCaprio by your side ..

The catch is that you need to book your trip online by the end of today through Priceline. So get at it already and make sure you bring along some of those sea sickness pills.
