Default REAL last minute deals -- where to find them??

Does anyone know how I can find out about last minute cruise deals -- like 7 days or less before a cruise sails? I have a pretty flexible schedule and I just know that the cruise lines are looking to fill their empty cabins in those last few days!!! Anyone???

Thanks!

Harder to find in summer time. More bargains in the fall.

BTW--Welcome to CruiseMates--good luck finding the 'deal'.

I use cruise compete and get bids for cruises from multiple travel agencies. I find this is the best way to find the best fares for cruises. Good luck.

In fairness, Vacations-to-go doesn't have access to any more last minute deals than any other major online cruise agency does. They all have the same inventory and in most cases also the same prices.

Almost any cruise agency has a page of "last-minute cruises" and I guarantee you that they will almost all have the some cruises.
