Rising Gas Prices Do Not End Cruise Vacation Bargains – If You Know Where to Look

Times may be tough for airlines and the travel industry in general, but that means great deals for savvy vacationers. The “Hot Deals” and the “Last Minute Deals” portions of the eCruises. com web site are nothing less than remarkable.

DANBURY, Conn. (PRWEB) October 2, 2005

High gas prices and the uncertain economy may cause a slow-down for the travel industry in general, but bargain cruise hunters are finding the best prices in years.

“Cruise lines do not want to set sail with a ship that is anything less than full, so last minute deals and bargains are getting better now than ever before. A smart shopper who can plan a cruise on short notice can get a genuine bargain,” explained Steve Kaplan, vice president of eCruises. com.

With over 100,000 very satisfied customers, the on-line cruise vacation specialist offers rock bottom pricing and a package of benefits that cannot be found anywhere else.

The web site has cruise listings for over 10,000 sailings all over the world, and the “Hot Deals” and “Last Minute Deals” portion of the site deliver the best opportunities for inexpensive cruise vacations to be found anywhere.

For example, a last minute deal on the Carnival Legend cruise ship leaving from New York for the Eastern Caribbean is priced at just $670 for an 8-day vacation. The amazing part is that this is a total price. All the port charges, government taxes, fees, and full travel insurance protection are included. In fact, the company adds some perks not available anywhere else.

“Every one of our customers receives full travel insurance that covers them from the moment they step out their door to the moment they return. This is the best travel protection insurance you can get, and we give it to you at no extra charge when you book your cruise from eCruises. com,” said Kaplan.

The company also gives each customer a one-year complementary subscription to both “Cruise Travel” and “Travel America” magazines, a combined value of $59.

The number of last minute deals on any one ship is usually very limited, and the early bird gets the worm. Bargain cruise hunters monitor the deals on eCruises. com and are quick to respond.
