Even though the cruise industry's "Wave" season is still officially a few weeks away, judging by the bargain fare offers arriving in our email box lately, it's clear that cruise lines are looking for our business now.
With the economy in a slump, fares are dropping to levels we haven't seen since the period following 9/11. When you can get $1,500, $1,000, or $750 per person* off nearly all 11-day Baltic and 12-day Mediterranean cruises, and half that off most shorter European sailings on Crystal Cruises' Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity next summer, even a luxury cruise may fit into your vacation budget.
And, with that kind of savings on a luxury ship, you can count on mainstream cruise lines to be an even better bargain. Going on a cruise for the holidays could be cheaper than staying home and there are even bargains left for Christmas and New Year's sailings this month.
