Happy New Year! Not sure how valuable the following is, or whether it is better or worse than other cruise outlets, but the following popped in my inbox today so thought I'd pass it along. "CruCon Cruise Outlet is launching its New Year's sale one day early for Travelzoo members, with site-wide savings of up to 80% on all cruises booked before Wednesday. The sale covers every major cruising destination worldwide, and the deals come with extras such as onboard credits, unlimited drinks (including alcohol), prepaid gratuities, specialty dinners and reduced airfare. (Extras vary by cruise line.) Plus, the first 500 bookings receive an additional $100 in onboard credit when booking an oceanview cabin or higher on any cruise that’s seven nights or longer with promo code JS17. Click below to see all the deals that are part of this sale and to book online at any time. Phone bookings are available Monday-Wednesday. Call 800-493-6609 from 8 a.m.-9 p.m. ET. The promo code will be automatically added to online bookings." http://www.crucon.com/TZTODAYSPECIAL.htm They are closed today but apparently you can book online.
