Cyber Monday cruise deals 2023: Here are the best pre-holiday bargains at sea

If thoughts of next year’s vacation have you yearning to cruise, Cyber Monday deals are a great way to solidify your plans early and bag a bargain while you’re at it. Many lines are offering Cyber Monday cruise sales that feature fare discounts, free Wi-Fi and drinks, “kids sail free” offers, cabin upgrades and other perks and bonuses.

With cruise deals, Cyber Monday offers aren’t quite as enticing this year as in 2020, 2021 and 2022. That’s because cruises have been selling exceptionally well in 2023.

It’s easy to be swept up in offers that tout what appear to be great markdowns — either a set amount of money off or percentage discounts — but the fares might not be as discounted as you’re led to believe. Always make sure you’re comfortable with the final price and what you’ll be paying per person, per night, before you book any voyage.

Check back often. We’ll update this article as new deals roll out.

Check with your favorite travel agency

In addition to booking directly through your cruise line, you can also reach out to a travel adviser. Agents have access to the same great deals the lines are offering, but sometimes they can throw in a few more extras, such as free bottles of wine or onboard credit. Before booking anything directly, it might be worth a phone call.

Book via an airline portal

For any cruise deal, run the numbers to see if you’re better off booking directly with the cruise line, a travel agent or with an airline cruise vacation specialist. United Cruises, for example, frequently offers additional incentives for passengers to book through its portal. At the time of publication, cruisers who have Premier status with United could take advantage of perks like free bottles of wine, spa credit and bonus United miles when they book a sailing with select lines through United Cruises.

American Airlines Cruises has a similar portal that allows you to enjoy perks like waived deposits and bonus AAdvantage miles.
