Ocean cruises to nearly any destination, even aboard luxury lines, are available at bargain pricing. The cruise line industry is relatively healthy; it has nearly doubled in passengers served over the past eight years. It aims to stay that way by being sensitive to pricing in an uncertain economy.
For example, New York-based Travel Dynamics International is waiving its $1,000 fee for single travelers. It’s also offering a 50% discount to couples on selected itineraries and hotel perks in your port of departure.
Fort Lauderdale-based Silversea is offering discounts and throwing in an on-board spending credit for add-ons like guided tours ashore or spa treatments.
