San Diego Cruise Deals

How can you find a great deal on a cruise? Read on, we have several useful tips.

Timing is important. Book way ahead of time to get early-bird bargains. You'll need to make a reservation a year before departure to get in on these deals.

Last minute cruises are another way to use timing to your advantage. If a cruise isn't selling well, the cruise line might offer great bargains to fill the ship. Selection isn't good because you're choosing from leftovers. Last minute cruise bargains are offered within 45 days of departure.

The "wave season" in January and February is the most popular time of year to book a cruise. During those months the industry competes for your business with low fares and upgrade offers.

Repeat customers get special offers from cruise lines. If you've sailed with a line before, be sure to ask about deals for returning passengers.

Consider departing from a port close to home. Airplane flights or long drives waste money. There are many cruise ports in America, sail from one near you.
