2 for 1 deal?
Just went on RC ship, and because of hurricane didnt port anywhere. i want to go on another cruise to finally get to a port, but dont want to shell out so much money again. Are there ever any 2 for 1 special for cruises? Or cheaper cruises than $169 a person? ideally weekend cruises.

There are some pretty good rates for 3-nt cruises depending what time of year you go. You won't find those cheap rates during peak time. Cruises are lower during the heavy hurricane season for a reason. I've never seen a 3-nt cruise as cheap as $169 after port fees and taxes, and I've never seen a two-for -one. If you have flexibility and can drive to the port, then last minute "Hot Deals" with RCI and "Pack & Go" rates with Carnival can be quite good. When those deals come out you have a very limited time to book them. For instance a couple weeks ago I saw a 5nt Pack & Go rate for only $269 after all taxes.

I like 15 minute drive from the port of Miami. Due to my husbands work, we can only do 3 day weekend cruises. Last minute cruises would definitely work for us. Besides, the sites you mentioned, are there any other sites that have these last minute deals? the sites I found from google, are more expensive than the cruise line sites themselves.

Thanks again!

Work with a Travel Agent. They can watch for the hot deals and Pack & Go rates. Pack & Go rates come out every Wednesday and you must book by Friday. However; it's all based on availability, so the available cabins could be sold quickly and not be available yet on Friday.

Sign up on the cruise lines website for the last minute deals
some give Resident rates for those that live in Florida
