Cruise News and Information
October 8, 2012

National Cruise Vacation Week is October 21-27, 2012!
Possible the Best Time Ever To Book Your Next Cruise Vacation
This is the best time to book your next cruise vacation because many of the lines are running spectacular deals and specials! 

As a matter of fact, one of my very favorites, Cunard Line, is having an absolutely fantastic sale (you can see the details here)… and if you’d like to read the travel diary of my most recent voyage with them, you can find it here.  This line truly allows you to become a part of history; their ocean liners are unfailingly beautiful, luxurious and complete with amenities, yet they capture a glamour of days gone by.

There are so many fabulous deals to be had in this sale, we decided to dedicate this week’s newsletter to providing comprehensive information on what the lines are offering.  Details are as follows; we know there are many, many deals to read in this newsletter, but its well worth your time. 

(Please bear in mind we have done our best to give you accurate details,  CruiseCompete agents  should be able to give you more details when booking, as the offers are subject to change without any notice.)

Bon Voyage !

If you would like to see all the deals in one place, please click here, or click into a line below to discover what they’re offering:  
To find out more details on any of these National Cruise Vacation Week specials, please contact your CruiseCompete agent.

Check out our Cruise Line Reviews… some examples

Seabourn Spirit- “When we arrived at the ship, we immediately felt welcomed as we were greeted at the ship with a personal steward to take our luggage aboard and to show us around. Our cabin was large with a full seating area, walk-in closet and bathroom. Awaiting us were the fully stocked minibar, fruit plate and a bucket of chilled champagne!” More….

Cunard QM2- “My wife and I have been on numerous cruise lines - none compare to Cunard. The Queen Mary 2 is the very best. If you want top quality food and entertainment, along with an incredibly beautiful ship, she is the way to go.”  More…

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…
