You might try Regal Cruises. I got a week off in December at the last minute and found a good deal on the internet on their ship, Regal Empress. I've cruised a lot on Carnival, Norwegian, and Royal Carribean but had never heard of this ship. Anyway, I called and was offered a cruise for under 200 for 5 nights. The ship was only half full and they were pretty much giving cruises away. Booked it and then paniced when I read some very unfavorable reviews. Anyway, ended up with a cat 3 outside cabin. I was traveling alone as a 28 yo(first time I'd ever cruised alone)but ended up meeting people onboard and having an awesome time. The ship is old, okay very old, but the food was great and I loved the fact that there was only 400 people onboard. Felt like I was a person, not a number. Wouldn't hesitate one bit to cruise with them again in the future.
