Need info on booking a cruise last minute

Recommended Posts

Hi All --


I am sorry if this has been covered and I missed it. I am looking to book a cruise for early November but will not know if we are able to go until about a 3-4 weeks prior. Assuming the cruise is not sold out, do prices get cheaper or more expensive a month out? Can anyone give me their experience with booking so close to sail date? Thank you.

prices can go either way depending on the cruise line & itinerary

If you need to fly to the port  the airfare may  wipe out any savings  in prices from cruise fares


If you have an itinerary in mind just keep checking closer to when you know  you can travel

Cabin selection will be limited 

Go to the cruise lines website & sign up for their deals 

just remember to read the fine print

If you are a resident of the port state be sure to sign up for promotional alerts.  I get last minute offers sailing from Galveston often.  These are usually from 2 to 6 weeks out
