Default Lots of Free Time

I just retired this week So, its time for more cruises. What I was looking for was information about last minute bookings. I know cruise lines always want every cabin filled even for rock bottom prices. Where do I find info about these open cabins. Now that I leave at a moments notice why not cruise...

I know Primcess has a page on their website you can use to sign up for alerts. Not sure about other lines.

The best bet might be to let your TA know you are interested in last minute cruise deals.

I would talk to some Travel agents in your area and see if they have any information you can use. I talked to one gentleman on a cruise and he said he lives in Florida and the TA calls him with these great last minute deals so the ship can be full.

Hi Scott, and congratulations on your retirement! Here's the link to the Princess "Drop and Go" offers:

I'm guessing that the other lines have similar offer's, but this is the only one we get.


Have fun!

I am also retired and a Florida resident.


A last minute cruise would be OK, but I enjoy booking in advance and picking the cabin that I want on a ship that I really want to sail on.
