Waiting until after Thanksgiving for Black Friday promotions is so 2019. For the past three years, cruise lines have released their pre-holiday deals early and 2023 is following the trend, with several cruise brands having released their offers as early as the beginning of November.
Early deal releases began in an effort to drum up business during the industrywide pandemic shutdown in 2020. Due to the resounding success of the pre-Turkey Day launches — and Americans' insatiable desire for bargains — cruise lines have kept up the practice.
In recent years, deals have focused on value-added perks like onboard credit, complimentary Wi-Fi and drink package add-ons, and "kids sail free" inclusions. We're seeing more of the same this year, but with a few more fare discounts added to the mix. Additionally, most of the promos we're seeing are for sailings in 2024 and beyond; few, if any, are for last-minute sailings, which is due to how well cruises have been selling in 2023.
Although this year's offers aren't quite as stellar as the ones we saw when the industry was on shaky ground, there are still a few that stand out in terms of excellent value. Here are some of the best deals we've seen so far, with several more set to be released by various lines over the next week. Check back for our full roundup of nearly two dozen deals, which will be published Nov. 20.
