THE DEAL: CruCon Cruise Outlet is offering a 13-night transatlantic cruise onboard Celebrity Eclipse, sailing from Fort Lauderdale to Southampton on April 19, 2014. Prices start from $699 per person for an inside cabin and up to $1,199 per person for an Aqua Balcony cabin. Up to $200 in onboard credit is available at booking. This is a last-minute deal, and expires tomorrow.
WHAT WE LOVE: If you can catch this deal while it lasts, you could be sailing across the Atlantic this April in your Aqua Balcony cabin from less than $95 per person, per night. These transatlantic rates provide a range that is budget-friendly, regardless of cabin class (starting at just $54 per person, per night), and the cost is further balanced with up to $200 in onboard credit. Ocean crossings are known for plenty of sea days, but the ports of call — Nassau, Porta Delgado and an overnight in King’s Wharf w– ill treat you to tropical weather before disembarking in the U.K. The Celebrity Eclipse is a well-liked ship, known for its innovative features such as the Lawn Club and glass-blowing show.
WHAT GIVES US PAUSE: If you’re too hesitant or indecisive, this deal may be just out of reach. Expiring this Friday, July 19, it is a super but short-lived promotion. Additionally, while transatlantics are a satisfying vacation length, they’re not roundtrip, so flights home from Southampton are an out-of-pocket expense. Compare flight prices with our sister site TripAdvisor’s meta-search tool.
