Last minute cruises out of Port Canaveral are one way to get a cheap vacation. As the departure day of a cruise approaches, the cruise line may lower the price of remaining staterooms to fill them. Last minute deals are offered 30 to 60 days before the sailing.
If a ship is sufficiently full there is no need to offer discounts. And even if there are bargains to be had, your choices will be limited. You may not get the type of stateroom that you prefer.
So trying to wait for a last-minute cruise deal is a gamble. Be flexible in your vacation plans and it might work for you.
