Cruise Lines is looking to lock in more business farther out by now offering early-saver rates with savings
of up to $200 per person on summer and fall cruises.
The rates are available up to three
months prior to sailing date for cruises of five days or less and up to
five months prior to sailing date for longer length voyages. The
special fares include all stateroom types, including suites, and come
with a rate protection feature if rates later drop below what the
consumer originally paid.
Among the savings currently available: Up to $200 off per person on seven-day Alaska cruises aboard Carnival Spirit with early-saver prices starting at $449; seven-day Mexican Riviera voyages from Los Angeles/Long Beach aboard Carnival Splendor with early-saver prices starting at $399; seven-day Caribbean cruises from Florida aboard Carnival Valor and Carnival Liberty with early-saver prices starting at $399; and up to $150 off per person on five-day Atlantic Canada cruises from New York aboard Carnival Triumph with early-saver prices starting at $399.
