We periodically ask our friends at AllThingsCruise.com to tell us about the best bargains in cruises at the moment. Here's what they suggested, where to book them, and what, in the opinion of the sellers, makes each one a steal. 

Most of these vacations are for after the turn of the new year, but there's one for a 5-night trip next month that's just $159 plus taxes and charges. The major cruise lines are offering a variety of sales incentives until October 13 to promote National Cruise Vacation Week—we list a few of the more interesting ones, but other lines are also participating in some way.

Unless specified, all prices are the lowest possible for an inside cabin, and they are based on double occupancy. These specials may include other extras such as onboard credits (so ask) and they may sell out—and probably will. Frommer's doesn't share in the sales—we just want to share travel deals with our readers.
