Here is an example:
Disney Cruise Line has a Kids Cruise Free offer for select fall cruises to Mexico on the 1,754-passenger Disney Wonder from Los Angeles, between Oct. 23 and Dec. 18. A family of four (including two kids age 17 or under), sharing an ocean-view cabin, can cruise for a week from $2,338 on the Nov. 27 sailing. That’s a total savings of $1,278, according a Disney Cruise Line spokesman.
Norwegian Cruise Line which operates weekly from Boston on the 2,244-passenger Norwegian Dawn, has fall sailings at the bargain price of $479.00
What’s a Sample Cruise? Some cruise lines are inviting “newbies” (those new to cruising) to test out a day or two sail rather than booking for a longer trip.
National Cruise Vacation Week (Oct. 17-23)
Look for the cruise lines and travel agents to roll out a whole bunch of deals from Oct. 17 to 23, including last-minute fall specials and offers for the 2012 season. Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), the industry’s main marketing group, has declared the week “National Cruise Vacation Week,” an expansion of a popular promotion that used to last for just one day.
