These days, with most cruises selling out well ahead of time, I'd think you might find it more difficult than in years past.

On our most recent cruise in September, the prices did nothing put go UP from the time we booked (March). There were no last minute deals to be had, I'm afraid.

Just type in "cheap cruises" in your browser and it will give you all kinds of websites that sell cruises. Many of these have last minute deals and also list their toll free numbers so I'd look around and give them a call. I can think of at least four of these sites off hand that have last minute deals but I don't think we are supposed to list or advertise websites on this board are we? Good Luck

There is no such thing as "Stand-by". Even 'last minute' is usually a week or more and up to a month before is considered 'last minute' niw. If you are hoping for a 7 day cruise in a balcony for say a couple hundred dollars believe me, no matter what anyone says, it isn't gonna happen. If it did I would be on every one I could. <G>

Well I'm a interline employee and we have several site and companies that list
last min deals. My husband and I just took a last min deal on NCL for $199.00pp
for a 7 day cruise out of New Orleans in Oct. We were in a Oceanview Cabin, which
was pretty nice. I booked that cruise 2 weeks before sailing. So there is Hope on
last min deals.
