THE DEAL: Carnival Cruise Lines is offering an eight-night cruise aboard Carnival Miracle, sailing roundtrip from New York, on December 8, 2012. Rates start at $379 per person for an inside cabin.
WHAT WE LOVE: With nightly rates from as little as $47 and stops in Freeport, Nassau and Port Canaveral, this cruise offers a lot of value for your money. It’s an especially good bargain if you live in the Northeast and can save the cost of airfare by driving or taking the train to and from the airport.
WHAT GIVES US PAUSE: If your idea of a bargain is an offer that features lots of added value bonuses such as onboard credit and prepaid gratuities, you may be better off booking with a travel agent.
