Royal Caribbean
One-Day Sale!

By PAUL MOTTER

Today, Tuesday October 2, Royal Caribbean is sponsoring a one-day sale on Royal Caribbean and Celebrity cruises. All of the agencies listed on this page can help you with this event, or go to royalcaribbean.com. There are good bargains available today, while they last. Cruises are selling fast so be sure to check availability after you see the initial price.

And if you miss the sale today, be sure to get our Thursday CruiseMates newsletter (in two days) which will also have an exclusive link to Royal Caribbean specials for just for CruiseMates readers! If you want to subscribe to this newsletter now, so you are sure to receive it Thursday, go here: subscribe. If you already received this newsletter, you are already subscribed to the other.

Royal Caribbean is CruiseMates' top rated cruise line for families, especially the Freedom-class which has myriad onboard sports activities. This was the first ship with the Flo-Rider wave-making machine for surfing and boogie-boarding right on the deck of the ship (not behind it, as a few people have asked us!).

The Freedom-class also has a larger ice skating rink than the Voyager-class, and cantilevered hot tubs high atop deck 17 hanging over the edge of the ship. There is so much to do on these behemoths, it is impossible to be bored. And don't forget, Freedom of the Seas and her first sister ship, Liberty of the Seas, both sail out of Miami on alternating Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries. Take your pick of leaving on a Saturday or a Sunday, and go to whichever itinerary you prefer - or take both itineraries back to back without changing ships!.

The third sister, Independence of the Seas, is ready to make her European debut in May 2008. The ship is scheduled to sail out of Southampton, U.K. full time, for the enjoyment of the burgeoning British class of cruise enthusiasts.

Here are some samples of the Royal Caribbean and Celebrity savings available today only!

Norwegian Gem: 9-days from $349

America's Vacation Center has the Trans-Atlantic crossing of the brand new "It Girl" Norwegian Gem. This 9-day sailing is going for as little as $349 per person. That is under $40/day, which makes it the least expensive cruise I have ever seen in my life. Even balcony cabins or only $649 pp! The sail date is December 3, and the price includes a $100 shipboard credit to use during all those relaxing days at sea.

Other Hot NCL Deals

The 14 and 15-night sailings on NCL cruises from New York to Miami or New Orleans (respectively) are also great offers. These Free-style ships are a great way to get out of New York for an extended, relaxing vacation.

The Norwegian Dream 14-night sailing in South America has dropped yet another $100. Now you can sail from Santiago, Chile, reoundtrip starting at just $499 per person! Unbelievable.
