Moment's Notice Strikes Again with Caribbean Cruise Savings

One of our favorite cruise booking companies, Moment's Notice, is back again, this time with a spiffy seven-night Western Caribbean cruise where the prices start at just $488 per person--and in high season, no less. It's a significant gesture to those of us who want to get away midwinter to warm up in the tropical sun.

The $488 will get you an inside cabin on the Celebrity Cruise's good ship Mercury, sailing from Miami on January 10, 17, 24 and 31 in 2003. An ocean view cabin will cost $578 for the same sailings. Port charges of $139 are already included in the price as are all meals while on board the ship, some beverages, and entertainment. Not included are government fees of $24.35 per person.

Departing at 8pm on Friday nights, the Mercury's itinerary includes Georgetown in Grand Cayman (seven hours in port), Cozumel in Mexico (eight hours in port), Progresso, also in Mexico (11 hours in port), and Key West (ten hours in port), with a return to Miami on the following Friday at 7am.

On a January 3, 2003 sailing (if there any rooms left by the time you contact Moment's Notice), the prices are slightly higher, being $538 for the inside cabins, $638 for ocean view staterooms. The same ship on its February 7, 2003 sailing (if any rooms are left by the time you contact), will cost $569 for inside cabins, $668 for ocean view rooms.

Airfare is not included, but you can make arrangements through Moment's Notice or on your own. For more information, go to
