Family Finance: How to find deals on a cruise vacation

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

From Carnival to Royal Caribbean, in the past few months several cruise lines have had a variety of problems at sea. Fortunately for consumers, that means now is a great time to take advantage of amazing sales.

Some of the best cruise vacation deals are selling for as little as $50 a night, and Carnival is even offering special deals for Georgia residents.

"Carnival is trying to build their confidence back into the passengers, and so they are offering them last minute bookings and so Carnival probably has the biggest presence in the Caribbean right now," Susan Disney-Greenberg with Edgewood Travel said.

She also said, surprisingly, she hasn't seen a dip in consumer confidence in cruise lines. But, by the end of May, Carnival did lower it's earning forecast in anticipation of lower rates to incite more travelers to book trips.

Disney-Greenberg said it's pretty easy to find double occupancy cabins, and said you can still book for this summer if you do your research.

"I would say normally over the 4th of July you will find some really good buys. Usually that middle of August you'll find really good buys as well, because as we get further into the hurricane season, you will find that the cruise lines sometimes adjust their pricing."
