For example, Seabourn just announced a 60 percent savings on dozens of amazing Mediterranean sailings between March 31 and August 29. The catch? Bookings must be made Monday Jan 12 through Monday Jan 19th. Per person fares from about $2,800, depending on date and itinerary.
If you book a select sailing to Alaska aboard Celebrity by this Friday,Jan. 9th, you'll get a $200 shipboard credit and only 50 percent of the typical deposit is required. For its part, Windstar (pictured above) is also offering a 50 percent reduction on cruise deposits on all new bookings made now through Feb. 28. This means a committment of only $375/person instead of $750 each, within 3 days of putting a cabin on hold.
