Cruise fares today are already low, low, low and may have even bottomed out. Should the economy take an upswing in mid-year, you'll surely see prices begin to rise. Now is a good time to lock in the best fare.
Not only are fares currently a bargain, it's almost the beginning of "Wave Season"—the time of year when winter doldrums set in and it's time to think of warm sea breezes and booking a cruise. The busiest cruise booking time of the year begins in a few days and will last through March. You might even see some better deals coming shortly as cruise lines and travel agents prepare to entice you to plan for your 2009 vacation.
Have you decided on a ship yet? Or are you waiting to see what the new ships for 2009 will have to offer? The new year will see the introduction of new ships that are first in their "classes" as well as some that follow a familiar profile.
Cruise Diva is happy to preview New Ships For 2009. Don't miss the boat!
