Catch a Cruise Deal This Weekend

Royal Caribbean says that summer goes hand-in-hand with vacation and there’s no better way to create unforgettable memories this season than with one of their cruises. Today, Saturday, June 29, the cruise line known for “WOW”-ing guests with its first-at-sea concepts is offering an onboard credit of up to $50 per stateroom for guests to enjoy when sailing between July 1 and Sept 30, 2013. Guests can apply their onboard credit toward a range of new specialty dining options, shore excursions, or a rejuvenating spa treatment to make their Royal Caribbean vacation extra special. With summer just underway, there is still the time to finalize a family vacation on a Royal Caribbean ship, where destinations such as the grandeur of the Alaskan frontier, the lush and laid-back Caribbean, or Europe’s cultures and heritage are delivered with the cruise line’s GOLD Anchor Service.

Vacationers who book a Royal Caribbean cruise on June 29, 2013, on any sailings departing July 1 through Sept 30, 2013, will receive $25 onboard credit per Interior and Oceanview stateroom, and $50 per Balcony stateroom and Suite-category stateroom. The Super Saturday Sale is applicable for all new individual U.S. and Canadian bookings. For more information about Royal Caribbean’s Super Saturday Sale, visit

Even more enticing in terms of credits and discounts, Princess Cruises is celebrating Independence Day with a “Red, White & Blue Sale” featuring cruise deals on North American departures. The June 27 to July 8 event offers cruise discounts of up to 40 percent, plus up to $100 free onboard spending money.

More than 100 cruise departures are featured in the sale, including cruises to the Caribbean, Hawaii, Panama Canal, the California Coast, Mexico, Canada & New England, and the West Coast. Cruises depart between September and December 2013.
