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.
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!
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.

I’ve posted many articles, pictures, and video of the NCL Villas and Suites on CruiseSource.us. The private Courtyard Villa complex found on many of Norwegian Cruise Line’s ships including the NCL Pearl, Jade, Gem, Jewel, and Epic set NCL apart from the other cruise lines. For celebrities like OutKast’s Andre 3000 who recently vacationed on the NCL Epic, being able to spend all of your time enjoying the privacy of the courtyard complex makes for a relaxing vacation that is not possible on most other cruise lines.
Thanks to a NCL drastically reducing rates on their Suites and Villas for new bookings made between August 12th & 15th, this exclusive luxury just got very affordable. This sale includes almost 100 sailings! Get the complete list of sailings and savings for Free!
For instance on the NCL Jewel 7 night Bahamas Cruise departing New York City on 11.14.2010, a Family of 4 in a 2 bedroom villa is $1999 for the 1st and 2nd passenger. The rate for the 3rd and 4th passenger in each cabin is only $199 per person. So the total price for 4 people in a two bedroom Villa is $4890. This gets you the exclusive luxury that only the NCL Courtyard Villas offer for about $1200 per person. This sale is offering savings of $1000s and includes almost 100 NCL Cruise vacations to the Bahamas, Caribbean, Greecs, Panama Canal, and the Mediterranean.

We are at the halfway point of our cruise vacation. We have met a lot of great people from all over the world. Everyone that we talk to on the ship are big fans of the “freestyle” cruising experience. Jess and I are really enjoying not having a schedule.
Today we were in St. Johns, Antigua. We did the Rainforest Canopy Zipline tour. I had never Zipped Lined before so I was a little nervous, but after the first line I was all good. So from relaxing on a beach yesterday to hiking and ziplining we have had quite a mix of experiences on this cruise. ADVICE: If you are going on the 9 night NCL Pearl or Jewel, and you want to do the Zip lines then I recommend you pre-book the excursion online. You will want to book the Zipline in St. Lucia because there are more Ziplines and they are longer. The St. Lucia Zip line was soldout so we went the Antigua Zip Line. The Antigua Zip Line is worth the money, but I hear that St. Lucia’s is better.
Tonight we are going bowling for the first time. The seas have been a fairly rocking so far on the trip. Tonight they are calm so we should be able to see the show and get in a couple games of bowling! ~ Happy Sailing!
