Default Best way to get cheap cruise?

I have come across a couple pages on the Web where people said they paid a very low amount for the cruise. For example, $500 for a 10-day.

The large sites like cruise.com or orbitz, etc. all seem to have the same fares. Is there a secret place or way to find ultra discounted fares that are different from the rest?

I booked my next cruise using bargain finders on this site. I got a great deal on a 7 day cruise on the Miracle, almost $200 less than what was quoted by a local travel agent. You might want to give it a try.

We watched and watched the price for a 15 day cruise thru panama canal and we found **edited***buycruises***edited*** with the best price, maybe it was a case of perfect timing, but we got an inside for 2130 total for both of us, then I called and asked for an upgrade to outside and wwas quoted 1,000 more, I said no, TA called me back and said NCL said 200 total more and we got upgraded to an outside, port side....2330 total for both...I looked all day one day for the best bargain. I also booked 39 days out from sailing, not sure if that was a factor.

Good luck
Marlene

kimskruises got me the best rate I have seen. 730.00 for an 8 X10 foot balcony with a hundred dollar ship board credit. That is 80 more than Orbits' inside rate.

it really depends on what you want. there alot of places where if you call you can possibly get a better price or can beat the price you got. another tip the futher out you book the better prices you get, If you do not wana book so far in advance i would say book the cruise anywhere from 5 months before the cruise and see if there are any resident or Sr. promos avialable.

Keep checking with the same travel agent and ask if specials come in. If you can leave kind of last minute that helps too.
