At CruiseDeals.com, we track cruise pricing trends closely as we pride ourselves in alerting our clients and subscribers to the best deals first.   This week, the CruiseDeals.com Seamail Spotlight focused on Holiday Deals.   Due to the popularity of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Cruises, we originally ran the Holiday Spotlight a month ago.  My expectation when researching the Holiday cruises was that the rates would be higher than they were a month ago.   To my surprise, a couple of the Thanksgiving cruises and Christmas cruises had drastically reduced.  Here are the best Holiday Cruise Deals currently available.

Thanksgiving Cruise:

Enjoy the Celebrity Life this Thanksgiving on the Celebrity Century 5 night Western Caribbean Cruise, starting at only $259 per person.   At $56 per day, this rate can’t be beat.  You’ll be served a 5 star Thanksgiving Dinner and not have to touch a single dish!  

Christmas Cruises:

Looking for the hottest Christmas Cruise Deal?  On December 19th, 2010, the Norwegian Jewel is sailing 7-nights roundtrip from New York City.   Oceanview Cabins are available for only $549 per person!   With the average 7-night Christmas Cruise pricing out at over $1000 per person for an oceanview cabin, this is an unbeatable deal. 

Out of San Diego, CA, the Carnival Spirit is sailing 7-nights over Christmas to the Mexican Riviera starting at only $649.

New Year’s Eve Cruise:

Ring in the New Year on the Royal Caribbean Majesty of the Seas, 3-night Bahamas Cruise starting at $399 per person.

Looking to book a 2011 Holiday Cruises? I would book during the World’s Largest Cruise Night October 13th -15th, 2010.

When should you book your 2011 Cruise Vacation?

[tweetmeme source=”cruisesource” only_single=false “http://cruisesource.us/2010/09/24/2011-cruise/”%5DSo, you missed the huge cruise line sales last week? Don’t fret! I’m here to tell you the best time to book your next cruise. The answer to the question: “when is the best to book your next cruise?” is determined by several factors… I’ll try to cover the most popular scenarios.

2011 Cruise departing March – December.
So some in the industry may fall over… but if I was your agent I would instruct you to WAIT until CLIA’s World Largest Cruise Night October 13th – 15th. The World’s Largest Cruise Night is an event in which most of the Cruise Lines and Online Agencies like CruiseDeals.com offer steep discounts, free onboard spending money, and other amenities. Most of the offers will be focused on enticing potential cruisers to book their 2011 cruises early. So if you are going to cruise between March – December of 2011, this will most likely be the best time to book. Each year, the World’s Largest Cruise Night sees impressive growth in number of new bookings. In 2009, over 4,000 travel agencies generated about 44,000 cruise bookings during the World’s Largest Cruise Night booking period.

Worlds Largest Cruise Night Oct 13 - 16

Disney 2011 Spring Break or Summer Cruise.
I would book now! Due to supply and demand, Disney does not need to offer sales or discounts for Peak Season which happens to be any time the kids are out of school. The new Disney Dream is a hot ticket with the amazing slide coaster. I’ve been watching Disney Dream and Magic’s availability closely and it continues to drop which is causing rates to increase.

2010 Christmas Cruises:
Be on the lookout for deals. During the next couple of weeks I expect for there to be some price drop on Christmas sailings. If you see a Christmas sailing rate drop, be ready to act! opportunity to book will be 3 days max. Currently, Carnival and NCL Christmas cruises are the best deals and I would consider booking many of those ASAP.

2010 New Year’s Eve Cruises: I would book most of them today. The rates are low compared to previous years, but in many case the rates are increasing.

Do you have a cruise vacation that you’re wondering when is the best time to book it? Leave details in the comments and I will tell you when I think is the best time to book. I’m going a little crazy and old school here… but if you want, call my cell 704~965.0228 and we can discuss it.

Disclaimer: I am giving you my opinions about when is the best time to book your cruise vacation. There are many factors that are outside of my control that may affect cruise prices. This is the same advice I would give my own clients, friends, and family.
