Today’s Last-Minute Cruise Deals!

BUT FIRST, THE CRUISE OF THE WEEK IS…drumroll please…(yes, civilians also qualify!)

A last-minute cruise to Alaska, on the Norwegian Encore, departing September 25.

Rates start at just $545 per person for an inside cabin.

Get a balcony! The price on this date is only $930 per person – usually, balcony prices are $1500 per person.

September is an ideal time to see Alsaka, as the crowds are gone, but the water isn’t filled with ice like it would be in May – the only other month where you can get a good deal on an Alaska cruise.

We’re giving $100 on-board credit to any cabin booked with us on any Norwegian Alaska cruise departing in 2021!

Just call/email/chat whatever to confirm this if you want.

LAST WEEK’s cruise deal of the week was….

A last-minute LONG cruise, a transAtlantic, meaning you are crossing an ocean, baby!

This 15-day cruise starts in Lisbon, Portugal and ends in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Your cruise is going from Europe to South America!

Along the way, it will stop at the Canary Islands, Uruguay, and 3 cities in Brazil, including Rio de Janeiro. 

for only $555 per person!   That’s only $37 a day! 

All food is included.  Your room has a private bathroom. This isn’t a barge or ferry, this is a luxury MSC ship. 

There’s a lot of sea days here – like 9.  So if you want the tranquility and lack of connectivity – this cruise is for you. 


Here is a link to our live booking engine for this cruise – the MSC Orchestra, departing November 17, 2021.

The week before that’s cruise deal of the week was…

Actually, it was 13 cruises on The MSC Meraviglia, departing SOON, this August 2 through September 13, 2021.

These are all 3-, 4- or 5-day cruises departing from Miami, going to Nassau and Ocean Cay, MSC’s private island.

The free balcony upgrade for the price of an inside cabin applies only to these 13 sailings.

Kids free is on most MSC sailings, but it’s startling that they are COMBINING the KIDS FREE and BALCONY UPGRADE offers.

And the prices are still rock bottom, like $194 and $174 per person.


The MSC Meraviglia is a huge, luxury ship – not some little old thing!
Msc Meraviglia Infinity Atrium
This is the atrium, and every step of every staircase there is adorned with $40,000 of Swarovski crystal.
But yet, they still have kids clubs and big things for kids to do – like this water park and slides.
Meraviglia Balcony 79832
Here’s a balcony cabin! Sumptuous interior design going on there. Clearly, it’s Italian.

How we identify last-minute cruise deals?

Our site uses the most advantaged cruise search technology available today to access all cruises offered by all cruise lines, search through all their farecodes and find the one with the best price.  

Sometimes the lowest rate available from the cruise line will not be their military rate.  

Rather, it will likely be their non-refundable farecodes, that come with rules and restrictions.  

We are experts on:

*all cruise lines military rates;

*any discounts and benefits they offer to military and veterans;

*if those rates and benefits are combinable with another lower-priced farecode;

*and how to create the best combination of all options to maximize military and veteran discounts on a cruise.

We have experienced agents available 7 days a week, by phone, email, chat, skype etc – to answer any questions you have. 

So don’t hesitate to contact us!!

Here’s a list of Today’s HOT DEALS!

These are cruises we’ve selected specifically because the are a particularly good deal, for a variety of reasons.

They are not the CHEAPEST cruises. Rather, they are unique and the price may have just dropped.

 When are the best cruise deals available? 

Are there certain cruises that always have bigger discounts for military and veterans? YES!

The best months to find last-minute cruise deals would be the shoulder-season months of April, May, September, October and November – excluding any holiday weeks or weekends during those months.

There are almost never any last-minute deals available on summer-time or holiday cruises.  The best last-minute cruise deals for military and veterans will always be in the off-season times, of course.

If you can cruise during those off-season times, you will really get the best possible last-minute deal.

Is it necessary to book last-minute in order to get the best cruise deals and discounts for military and veterans?

Booking last-minute is not necessary to get the best deal when you book with Military Cruise Deals.

That’s because we monitor the rate of your cruise even after you book.  And if the price comes down before the time of your final payment, we will refare you to that new lower rate.

The only caveat to that is that the cruise lines will not allow us to do the refare after the time of your final payment. And that is usually 75-90 days prior to the cruise.  So if the price comes down after that time, we cannot get you the new lower rate.

Last-minute deals on cruises are actually unusual, as lately, most cruises are selling out way in advance, so prices on cruises are going up as it gets closer to their departure date.

Are there special discounts just for military and veteran seniors?  Yes!

Looking specifically for Royal Caribbean cruise options? Then read this.

*Our site will list all your cruise options ordered from least expensive to most. However,  Royal Caribbean will not allow its cruises to be listed in least-to-most expensive searches.  

So, often, all their cruise options will appear at the very end of those lists.  Keep that in mind if you want to see options from Royal Caribbean.

Or, better yet – go to our Royal Caribbean page to see links to lists of just Royal Caribbean cruise options.
