Discounts on Luxury Cruises

If you are willing to book ahead, there are some significant savings available on some luxury ships. Seabourn Cruises are considered to be among the best available, and it is possible to book passage on some of their ships for just over $200 per person per night, plus shipboard credits, through the Website
Seabourn has interesting itineraries around the world, such as Athens to Singapore for $202 per person per night, or Dubai to Singapore starting at $249 per person per night. I have never sailed with Seabourn, but have heard good reports from people who have.
Cunard ( is offering transAtlantic crossings on its flagship Queen Mary 2 this year for as little as $999 per person. which works out to less than $200 per night. The transAtlantic crossing is one I would recommend to everyone as at least a once in a lifetime experience, and the Queen Mary 2 is one of the few ships still providing it on a regular basis.
You may have seen QM2 in the news lately for intestinal illness that affected some 200 passengers. Unfortunately, this type of illness (along with seasickness) can occur on even the tightest ship. It's just one of the hazards of travel, and the experience of crossing the fierce Atlantic on a vessel with the storied tradition and elegance of a Cunard ship is, in my opinion, well worth the risk.
