CruiseCompete Currents
Cruise News and Information
September 24, 2012

Autumn is the time of year when the cruise lines are offering
their very deepest discounts and many amenities
If you are considering booking a cruise this fall, there are some excellent cruise deals. Pricing is at its very best in the fall, and you could save hundreds or even thousands on your cruise from standard pricing and also be offered some amenities that will vastly improve your cruise experience.

Amenities our agents offer can include cabin credits (it’s just like cash in your ship account), which may be used for any purchase on board the ship at the spa, gift shop, or for soft drinks, liquor and sometimes gratuities.

There are opportunities for category upgrades and at this time of year, autumn, you may be able to try a suite for the usual price of a balcony cabin.

There are some fantastic cruises listed on CruiseCompete’s specials page right now. Some cruises we like are:

Princess Cruises is offering a 16-Night Savoring Flavorful Hong Kong cruise aboard the Diamond Princess, Beijing to Bangkok, departing November 10, 2012. Stops in Pusan, Nagasaki, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Nha Trang, Ho Chi Minh City and Singapore. From $2,448pp with an On Board Credit.

Check out our Cruise Line Reviews… some examples

Regent Seven Seas Voyager:
“We have sailed on Voyager and Mariner and have only positive things to say about Regent Seven Seas Cruises. The ships are lovely, the service is outstanding, the food is 6-star, the cabins are lovely, and you know from the very beginning exactly how much the cruise is going to cost. It is an outstanding experience.”
Celebrity Solstice:
“From the moment we stepped on board we felt very welcomed. The staff was there for any and all questions. We went straight to the Shore Excursions desk knowing it was going to be packed if we waited any longer. The agent was knowledgeable of all ports and what to expect. She was also quite charming.”

Driving to your port? While cruising in itself is a wonderful vacation, just getting to the ship can be a trip in itself, particularly if the vessel is leaving from an interesting port. These port guides, available exclusively on AllThingsCruise, will give you all the information you need to enjoy a wonderful pre-trip in your embarkation port. More…
