Deals and News
On top of our usual round-up of bargain basement prices, we've found several stand-up offers on European river cruises, free airfare specials, two-for-one deals and a marathon around-the-world itinerary.
Matt Hannafin reports on the effects of the unusually strong hurricane season, shipbuilding, new itineraries, on-board programs and more.
In September and October, a raft of ships big and small depart New York, Boston, Montreal, Quebéc City and few other locales and hit the region's most picturesque places in just time for the leaves to turn.
While the 80s and 90s were the era of bargain-bin, Golden Oldies theme cruises, today the operative words are "specialized" and "outsourced," with specialists chartering big ships for floating blues- and pop-fests and smaller lines targeting highbrow to a discriminating audience.

From Sophia2006: "I'd appreciate hearing about anyone's experiences who cruised with a toddler. We are thinking of booking a Caribbean cruise for this winter (not sure which cruiseline yet and would like some recommendations also) and bringing our 2 year old with us."
From ebanducci: "I was shocked to open my Sunday paper and find an article written by Arthur Frommer recommending the Louis Hellenic cruise line. The title of the article says Cruise line specializing in the Aegean still being discovered by Americans. I was on a 4-day cruise on the Perla ship in June of this year and I already wrote a post on how disappointed I was."
From Beth Crossan: "We just returned from a cruise on the Pride of America and I suggest you cancel if have booked this trip. My husband and I have been on about 15 or so cruises. Some were on budget cruise lines that no longer exist. We have never had such an unhappy experience. We got off of Norwegian Cruise Lines brand new ship, the Pride of America on September 9, 2005. I have never been so glad for a vacation to end."
From Chiebert: "We just finished an Alaskan cruise on Princess (Whittier to Vancouver). Princess makes its passengers purchase soda separately (which is unique to the cruise industry, but not a secret). They do offer a sticker that cost $27 for the week and gives the buyer all the soda they can drink."
From jrowland: "I would like to know what your favorite site is for searching for cruises. Thanks!"
