Default Booking Last Minute Cruises

I am new to crusing and am wondering about booking through a "last minute" cruise wholesaler.

Does anyone have any experience and advice on this?

Thanks,

Eleanor

There's some very large and reliable agencies selling "last minute" cruises. If you see a fare you like, just look for some references about the agency before booking.

I have booked last minute several times. Some online agencies have a last minute page, so you might want to get on some email lists.

The problem with these bargains, is it usually eaten up by higher airline costs, if you need it. Compare all the factors before you book. Usually payment in full is required with stiff penalities for cancelation.
