The end of September [is] one of the best times to book a cruise, so for those considering a cruise, it would be a mistake to wait.

During National Cruise Week, almost every cruise line offers an additional discount, limited time promotional fares, pre-cruise hotel, free parking or transfers, On Board Credit or some other booking bonus. Coinciding with this is the time when traditionally some cruise lines review their pricing and the cost of many of the most popular itineraries goes up. Cruise experts at Silver Compass advise that this makes the end of September one of the best times to book a cruise, so for those considering a cruise, it would be a mistake to wait.

6* Regent Seven Seas Cruises has announced a triple-whammy for this year. Their fares are already the most inclusive of all the cruise lines, incorporating flights, all-suite accommodation (most also with balconies), all meals and drinks including fine dining and premium alcoholic beverages, entertainment, excursions, gratuities, and much more. On selected cruises, Silver Compass has added bonus On Board Credit of up to $600 per suite. For National Cruise Week, new guests will also benefit from:

  • complementary Internet access while on board
