Booking a cheap cruise on the Internet
When my Tibet holiday was cancelled (due to riots and closed border), I checked what Vacations to Go had to offer. Visit: hppt://www.vacationstogo.com
They have the most fantastic last minute deals on cruises if you search for ones which are less than 90 days from departure.
I was lucky.
Departing only 9 days later was an 18 cruise from Santiago (Chile), sailing via Peru, the Panama Canal, Costa Rica, Key West - Florida, to Boston (USA).
The last minute price was - $399 US (about the same $AU).
I emailed the company in Huston, Texas.
I could upgrade to a stateroom with a window for $449 – Wow!!
Only trouble was that was double occupancy price, so as I was travelling alone I had to pay double.
But I reckon for 18 days cruising on a luxury ship from South America to the USA via Panama, it was the bargain of a lifetime.
I can recommend Vacations to Go for the cruise component to anyone especially if you live in the US or UK.
The number of cheap Caribbean and Mediterranean voyages available is amazing.
One thing to remember – never pay the full brochure price for a cruise!!!
