Cruises Galore On Sale Next Week

Think Black Friday in America. Boxing Day in Canada. The best sale, ever, at your favorite department store…except that this “department store” sells cruises.

This is what will happen next week and — like the World Series, falling leaves and Halloween — it happens every October. For those of us who like taking long rides on big boats, it’s called “The World’s Largest Cruise Sale” and it comes along every National Cruise Vacation Week, which comes along every National Cruise Vacation Month.

This is the month, and the week starts Monday.

Along with the sale.

Apparently, the potential for savings is as much as $5,000. Every major cruise line is involved, under the umbrella of Cruise Lines International Association, to which 25 cruise lines belong. The large, familiar lines will have deals and so will lines you may have never heard of — like Windstar, Louis and Hurtigruten.

More than 5,000 travel agencies are involved, and it’s safe to say they’ll book more cruises next week than in any week until….next October.

We don’t sell cruises. We don’t promote cruises. What we try to do is let you know when we find what we think are good deals, and we’ll post one here every day during National Cruise Vacation Week.

And here’s one we have left from this week…
