I'd like to say out of all the various ways to travel our speciality here, at I Do, is defintely cruising as well as Disney vacations. So that brings me to the topic today of National Cruise Week.
What is National Cruise Week you ask?
National Cruise Vacation Week, which runs from Oct. 22 through Oct. 29, is an annual industry-wide sales event organized by the Cruise Line International Association, an organization in which all of the major cruise lines are members.
Virtually every cruise line you have ever heard about is offering various bargain incentives to book a cruise this week.
What kind of deals are cruiselines offering?
To celebrate National Cruise Vacation Week, cruise lines are launching some of the most aggressive discounts of the year on late 2012 and 2013 sailings, cutting prices by as much as 60%. Along with deep discounts, these deals include extras such as onboard credits, prepaid gratuities, bundled airfare and more.
Let's take a look at some of the deals various lines are offering:
Azamara Club Cruises
This small cruise line has only two ships that hold a mere 700 passengers apiece. They fill the tiny niche known as "Upscale Cruises" which generally offer all of the amenities and culinary excellence of luxury cruise lines, including outstanding cuisine and personalized service, but on very port-intensive itineraries and at lower prices.
Even better, for 2013 Azamara is expanding the items included in the cruise fare. Guests now get complimentary beer, wines and spirits during bar hours. Each cruise will have a special experience called an "AzAmazing Evening" where every guest will be treated to a special nighttime event in one of the ports of call (beginning with the 2013 European season). The line already includes wine and beer with dinner, free shuttle service in ports and staff gratuities in the cruise fare.
For Cruise Week, Azamara is adding $500 onboard credit for suites, $400 credit for veranda staterooms and $300 credit for oceanview staterooms.
Carnival Cruise Line
Carnival is the most successful cruise line, and this year it is also offering the steepest bargains for seven-day Caribbean cruises. For this special cruise week, from October 21-27, the line is offering free upgrades (up to two categories) to previous Carnival cruisers plus a 50 percent reduction is the cost of placing a deposit.
Three-day cruises are priced as low as $149 per person (inside) and $309 (balcony staterooms); Four-day sailings start at $169 to $429 for suites and five-day cruises are as low as $239 per person (inside) and $499 (balcony staterooms). Six-day sailings start as low as $319 (inside) and $529 (balcony) and seven day cruises are just $329 per person (inside) and $599 (balcony staterooms).
