Some weeks of the year simply aren't popular for cruising. The low demand means low prices and real bargains.
1. The first 2 weeks of December. Thanksgiving and Christmas consume the nation's attention, resulting in low demand for cruises between the two holidays. But it really is a fine time of year to get away from the hustle and bustle. Take advantage of the cheap cruises to go relax on a warm island beach.
2. The second week of January through February. This is a big down time for the cruise industry. People have spent a lot of money on the holidays, kids are in school, and traveling is difficult up north because of snow. It's a great time to escape the cold of winter and save big bucks.
