An Assessment of Cruise Deals Posted

When is a "cruise deal" a good deal?

If you book a cruise based on somebody's suggestion or pitch that it's a bargain, and the price goes up after that, then you got a deal. Just like anything else that you buy…you want to try and catch it at its low, low price.

Every day, we post a new cruise deal here at cruisingdoneright.com. The research is totally subjective. The outcome is always something of a gamble. There are no guarantees the price will go up, or won't come down.

Today, we are self-assessing. Picking five of this year's Daily Deals at random, here's what we discovered:

1) Posted January 23, Alaska cruise on the Grand Princess from Seattle (return). 
Price then: $598
Price today: $914
Difference: Booking now would cost $316 more

2) Posted February 5, Mediterranean cruise on Cunard's Queen Elizabeth from Venice to Rome 
Price then: $986
Price today: $799
Difference: Booking now would save $187

3) Posted March 10, Caribbean cruise on the Celebrity Constellation from Fort Lauderdale (return). 
Price then: $699
Price today: $749
Difference: Booking now would cost $50 more

4) Posted March 13, Alaska cruise on the Holland America Zaandam from Vancouver (return). 
Price then: $699
Price today: $699
Difference: No difference

5) Posted May 13, Caribbean cruise on the Norwegian Sky (3 nights) from Miami (return). 
Price then: $159
Price today: $329
Difference: Booking now would cost $170 more

Like we said, no guarantees…but we'll take three out of four and a tie!
