Wave season begins today, and Deal Flow is here to help

If you've never heard of Wave Season, that's understandable. It's an Inside-the-Cruiseway term referring to the spate of deals and special offers that all the major cruise lines roll out, beginning around Dec. 1 and lasting until early March or so.

Part of our job at Cruiseable is to look for cruise specials, land packages, sweet deals on airline travel and other specials and offers that don't just offer rock-bottom prices — after all, what's the point of going on a vacation where you're saving money but absolutely miserable?

So it's our job to look for getaways that offer value. Deals that are the real deal.

Travel writers + travel professionals

Here's how it works at Cruiseable:

  • Our travel writers, journalists and cruise bloggers continue to take cruises and write about their experiences without fear or favor, because you're looking for independent, outside points of view, not cruise line acolytes.
  • On the business side, our travel professionals handle your email queries and phone calls (1-877-322-3773) and occasionally contribute their own tips or advice on Cruiseable. But for the most part, they're scouring the dozens of communications that come across our desks every day from the cruise lines and our travel partners in search of the best deals — the best values — to make your cruise vacation absolutely awesome.

See our Ethics, disclosure & transparency policy for more info.

It's your vacation

In the end, you decide on the kind of experience you're looking for, using our state-of-the-art Bliss Filters, our Compare Cruises technology or our comprehensive travel guides.

Today, in the spirit of our customers-first mantra, we'll begin surfacing the best deals that we come across, at sea, on land and in the air. We call it Deal Flow.

If you come across a deal that looks too good to be true, or that you want to compare, let us know and we'll check it out for you. Please contact us, we're here to help.
