Has anyone ever purchased a cruise at the ports on the day the cruise was scheduled to leave? I've heard you can get really good deals if the ships are not full and you can be that flexible.

Thank you,
Siy

My husband and I have been wondering about this, too. Hope someone replies!

This is a new one on me, and I've done a lot of cruising. I would be tempted to say no, due to very heightened security regulations. They do have short notice lists that they offer to repeat customers, but I've never gotten anything with offers less than 2 weeks. There would be no way they could check you out before you got on the ship. When you look at it from someone else's point of view, would you want to be on a ship that they couldn't the people out first. On the contrary, I have seen boarding denied, as people didn't have the correct documentation, or something was suspicious on the paperwork. Hope this helps, but you could call the cruise lines direct. http://cruise-chat.com/groupee_commo...n_confused.gif

I don't know about day of the cruise at the port. However, if you are flexable look into www.skyauction.com This is a bid for cruise and some are less than a week. They fed ex the tickets and some are really good deals. Make sure you read all the extra charges when adding up the total you pay. Read,read,read,know,know know wha you are getting. Good luck...

You used to be able to purchase a cruise the day of departure (we did for the Carnival Victory on its maiden voyage out of NYC) but not any longer. Ships have to hand in a list of passengers to customs 3 or 4 days prior to departure. Have since booked a week or so before departure and got good deals. You pick up your tickets right at the pier if you book late.
