Summer 2006 has been a season of very short sales, and Carnival and Holland America have held more one-day to one-week sales than any other lines. This week is no different. Carnival is holding a one-day sale on Thursday and Holland America is presenting a three-day sale from Wednesday through Friday.
Carnival’s one-day sale is actually a two-day sale as today is a preview day. During the promotional period, you can book a cruise for as low as $259 and receive up to $100 in ship credit. Eligible sailings depart through March 31, 2007. According to the sale page, you can book the discounted prices today or tomorrow. To reserve your cabin, call 888-CARNIVAL (888-227-6482).
Holland America is offering a three-day sale through Friday, July 28. Select sailings throughout the world are available at low rates. Particularly good prices include one-night Pacific Coast cruises from $79, seven-night Caribbean cruises from $499, and seven-night Mexico cruises from $599. To book, call 877-SAIL HAL (877-724-5425) or a travel agent, and ask for Promo FJ.
But don’t worry if you can’t confirm your vacation plans this week. I’m sure there will be another sale next week or the week after that.
