Smart Deals: Yachts of Seabourn for 65% Off
THE DEAL: The Yachts of Seabourn has a "Yachting Collection Savings" promotion that includes the entire 2010 season of European and Asian cruises. The savings range from 45% to 65% percent.
WHY IT'S A DEAL: Like me, you probably blinked when you saw the pairing of "Seabourn" and "45% to 65% off." Seabourn's fleet of small luxury fleets are famed for service, space and perks, but not for discounts of any kind. This is a first. Which means that after the discount, all-inclusive fares are now starting from $2,749 per person, based on double occupancy of an ocean-view suite measuring 277 square feet or larger.
CAVEAT: In the words of Seabourn, "the savings are capacity-controlled and may be changed or withdrawn at any time, either for whole voyages or for certain suite categories."
THE DETAILS: The promotion includes nearly 150 cruises of seven- to 14-days aboard the Seabourn Pride, Spirit and Legend, the newly-launched Seabourn Odyssey, as well as its sister-yacht Seabourn Sojourn, which will debut in June 2010 in London.
