Example text

In a typical year, lines offer early-bird rates, usually 25% to 50% off the brochure rate, to those who book their Alaska cruise by mid-February of the year of the cruise. If the cabins do not fill up by the cutoff date, the early-bird rate may be extended, but it may also be lowered—say, a 15% or 20% savings. Offers made to past cruisers may present even bigger discounts. For the 2012 season, early-bird fares started at $529 on Carnival, $699 on Holland America, $649 on Princess, and $599 on Royal Caribbean.

They’re confusing! You’ll see low starting rates on the charts, but look further and you’ll realize those are for tiny inside cubicles; most of the cabins sell for much more. Sometimes the brochures have published rates that are nothing more than the pie-in-the-sky wish of cruise lines for the rate at which they’d like to sell the cruise (most customers will pay less). We strongly suggest you look at the earlybird savings column and book your cruise early (by mid-Feb for an average savings of 25%–30%, and sometimes as much as 50%).

We mention this only because we once met, on a small ship, a charming young lady who stood a little over 5 feet tall and weighed about 250 pounds. She told us that she had been advised by the cruise line not to book passage on the ship she first chose because she wouldn’t fit in the shower. The company put her instead on one for which her girth would not be such a problem. Understand, please, that the cruise operator is not being judgmental. But if you don’t mention such things and end up on an inappropriate ship, you’re in for a miserable time.
