Cruise lines want to fill their cabins before setting sale, so they sometimes offer bargain discounts to those willing to travel on short notice.
Interested in a last minute cruise? Keep these tips in mind::
- Your Savings could "Fly" Away. If you need to fly to the departure port, expensive last-minute airfare may eat into your discount.
- You May be Getting "Leftovers." Cabin selection is limited. We can help you evaluate your options before you decide.
- No Change of Heart. Last-minute cruises require full payment upfront and typically are 100% non-refundable.
- Timing Matters. At peak times, particularly holidays and summer, it's tough to find a last minute cruise. Other seasons and destinations have more last minute space, like winter in the Caribbean and the Bahamas.
- Don't Just Show Up at the Pier.. Cruise lines now sell most excess staterooms before sailing day, and security will likely prevent you from entering the port without a ticket.
