Cruise Deals During Wave Season

Share on: Share on Google+

If you’ve ever thought about booking a cruise, now is the time. Not only are cruises continuing to drop prices, but there’s still a few weeks left in what’s called the “wave season.” And that can translate into even more savings.

Wave season traditionally takes place between January and March.

That’s when travelers typically lock in their cruises for the rest of the year, so travel providers up the ante with freebies and perks.

If you book with Priceline Cruises, they’ll throw in a cash coupon for a hotel stay before or after the cruise.

Norwegian Cruise Line is offering free upgrades and up to $400 in onboard spending if you book by mid-March. And every couple of weeks, there are additional perks like discounted kids fares and reduced deposits.

Even luxury lines are discounting. Oceania Cruises is offering up to $1,500 off two-for-one fares AND free airfare if you book a fall European cruise before the end of March.

Regent Seven Seas is knocking off up to $1,000 per guest and free airfare.

And voyages include free shore excursions and onboard beverages … including alcohol.

Just remember promotional discounts are often applied to the full brochure fare.

So do your research and compare prices before grabbing a deal that sounds good on paper.
