More on Cruise Sale Week

As mentioned in the previous post, late October can be a good time to book a cruise because it is when a number of cruise lines cut prices and add goodies to book their ships for the coming year. At least that is what happened last year, during what was billed as the World's Largest Cruise Sale, sponsored by www.vacationstogo.com.
The latter site has been mentioned here previously as a good source for last minute and other cruise discounts, especially on luxury vessels. The goodies that the lines tend to add include reduced or sometimes free air fare, cabin upgrades and various shipboard credits.
Last year the cruise sale took place during the final full week of October, from the 21st to the 28th. Apparently there was a cruise sale day in 2011, also during October, but volume of demand was so high that they decided to expand it to a complete week.
Will the sale be held again this year? There are no guarantees, but the reductions can be so good that if you are considering a cruise for late in 2013 or any time in 2014, it would probably pay you to check with your travel agent or keep checking the Website of Vacations to Go for more information.
