Freebie Friday: Luxe Cruise, Free Airfare & 2-For-1 Pricing

A disclaimer first: even with all the "gimmes" of this deal, cruises on the standard cruiselines--think: Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, Carnival, etc.--will cost considerably less. But for those intent on true luxury, who want more of a yachting-style experience and primo service, well, this sale could mean a savings on hundreds of dollars off the usual pricing.

The Oceania Marina
In short: Oceania is rewarding those who book far in advance (by September 30) with free airfares and two-for-the-price-of-one discounts on a number of sailings. The bad news is: you're out of luck if you live in, say, Ketchum, Idaho or Anchorage, AK. The free airfare is only available from 26 major airports (JFK, LAX, MIA to give a few); for smaller gateways, a small fee will apply. As well, the offer is not available in all cabin categories.

Still the sale will be available on 42 different sailings beginning mid-November and going through October of next year. They range in length from 7 to 20 days and visit both the usual (Vancouver, Seattle, Venice, Barcelona) and less usual ports (Papeete, Valparaiso, Taipei, Hiroshima). And for couples, the two-for-one sailing is a big savings.

Oceania owns six ships, all small by today's standards (3 carry around 650 passengers, the remaining three carry double that number). They are consistently ranked among the most luxurious floating vacations available. For more information, click here.
