Fall cruise booking

I want to find a caribean cruise for the fall. I'm open on dates, just want a good price. What is the best line, route, month/week for good deals?

Usually you can find a good deal when a ship is repositioning. A good source of information is http://www.cruisecritic.com
There, you can find boards for each cruise line. According to each cruise board, people tell you that their preferred cruise line is the best. I would suggest that you check it out and form your own opinion. I have traveled with Carnival, Celebrity, and Royal Caribbean and so far I have not found major differences except that Carnival could be for people who are more budget oriented.

I used Hahn Blue Sky Travel to book my last cruise. They got me a week on RCCL -Southern Carribean itinerary for $599 per person several years ago in the fall. They have specials on their website http://www.cruise-specials.com/

Most importantly I didn't know the exact dates I wanted to go and they were very patient with me.

The only thing about the fall in the Carribean is that it is hurricane season. For that reason you can usually find good deals.

Try all the cruise line sites to see if they have any specials available for the fall, then call your agent or check other online sites to see if they have an even better price. There are specials in September for a week on some lines for between $500 and $600

Orbitz has a great search engine for cruises. www.orbitz.com and click on the cruises tab.

The best fares are usually available 60-30 days before the cruise.
