E-commerce Shop Online Homepage Sale Concept

Scoping Black Friday cruise deals (and Cyber Monday too!) is an annual tradition for any cruiser looking to reel in a little end-of-the-year savings. Hitting the net to track down bargain basement pricing has become something of an American pastime.

Lucky for cruise-hunters, we have a preview of Black Friday cruise discounts and promotions from all your favorite cruise lines -- and most run through the long holiday weekend. It's time to give thanks: The Cruise Critic roundup of Black Friday and Cyber Monday cruise sales has all the holiday promotions in one place, so you can call dibs on the best deal before the pumpkin pie even hits your plate. (And we'll be adding them as they come in -- if you don't see the deal you're looking for today, be sure to check back soon! Some deals won't be released until Friday.)
