Last minute cruise which is better?

Hi all,

i want to book a last minute cruise, can you tell me which cruise line you think is better? i have been to 1 RCCL before and i thought it was great but i can't seem to find anything i like for April.

was thinking of going with another cruise line but i have no input on any of them, any reason why you like one more then another.

we have a 12 yr, and i would love a Disney one but that is out of the question right now. might do that one later in the year.

Disney is obscenely priced to be surrounded by that many kids.

The best deal I have ever gotten on a cruise was 60 days out, on Empress of the Seas. $230/pp for an Oceanview room, for 5 days. SO there still could be hope for a really good deal for April, since the 15th is still 100 days out.

Last minute bookings are usually best through a TA or a website specializing in cruises ... such as this one. The closer it gets to the cruise date if there are openings the better your chance of a deal. But, it is best to be open to itinerary and cruise line if looking for a cheap deal.

Have a discussion with a very good TA, if you have a good relationship with one. They can find travel deals as they get e-mails and offers through their network faster that you can search.

I'd recommend Carnival first, because I adore their included poolside food options as well as their water slides. Then Norwegian second if you can't find a Carnival one that works!
