November is officially in full swing, which means eating bomb Thanksgiving food and Black Friday deals galore. If you think only retailers have great Black Friday deals, think again. Now is the best time to score deals on your next cruise vacation.

Although a cheap cruise can sound like a steal, you have to be able to distinguish the difference between getting good value and just a good price. Some deals may seem reasonable until you factor in the costs of flights and other travel expenses.

However, when done right, you can find exceptional Black Friday deals on summer vacations for 2020 and 2021. 

Here’s how you can snag the best Black Friday cruise deals this year!

Timing Is Everything

Cruises are usually booked 18 months in advance to one week prior to sailing. Booking in advance is great for cabin selection and receiving incentives for booking early, such as free meals, free drinks, or prepaid gratuities.

Saving Money On Your Cruise

The best deals can be found booking cruises with older ships and internal staterooms (rooms with no ocean view). You’ll also get a better deal if you book for a large group of travelers. 

Black Friday Cruise Deals, According To Kayak

5-Day Caribbean Cruises On Celebrity Cruises – $279+ per person

4-Day Mexico Cruises On Carnival Crusie Line – $169+ per person

10-Day Panama Canal Cruises On Holland America Line – $529+ per person

7-Day Caribbean Cruises On Princess Cruises – $399+ per person

12-Day Transatlantic Cruises On Royal Caribbean Int. – $488+ per person

7-Day Mexico Cruises On Norwegian Cruise Line – $499+ per person

Another great tip for snagging the best Black Friday cruise deals this year is to travel out of season. You’ll be able to enjoy quieter ports, and less crowded restaurants, tourist attractions, and cafes.
