Travel deals: Cheap cruises, 25 cent hotel rooms, and free nights at Disney

October is National Cruise Vacation month, and obvious gimmick the cruise industry uses to get attention but it does come with some nice sales. For example, Norwegian (see Bermuda and Alaska reviews on this blog if you haven’t already) is offering half off cruise deposits and up to $250 on-board credit on more than 300 cruises.

In what’s probably a better deal, how about staying in a Virgin Islands hotel for 25 cents a night. Sounds impossible but it’s a new sale celebrating a new quarter. You have to book your package with airfare on

The U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Tourism’s “Cent-sational” Promotion is available for travel through December 15, 2009. Not sure when you need to book but probably soon.

The hotels now participating: Bolongo Bay Beach Resort, Carambola Beach Resort & Spa, Club St. Croix, Hibiscus Beach Resort, Hotel Caravelle, Marriott Frenchman’s Reef & Morning Star Beach Resort, Point Pleasant Resort, Secret Harbour Beach Resort, Sapphire Beach Resort, Sapphire Village, The Palms at Pelican Cove, Windward Passage, and Wyndham Sugar Bay Resort & Spa.

Also have a Disney special I saw advertised to Canadians but I assume Americans can get the same:

Guests who purchase a four night/ four day non-discounted Walt Disney Travel Co. Magic Your Way hotel and ticket package at a select Disney moderate or deluxe villa resort for stays most nights from Nov. 1 to Nov. 24, Nov. 29 to Dec. 24 and Jan. 3 to March 27, will receive for free three extra nights of hotel accommodations and three more days added to their theme park tickets.

Guests who purchase a five night/ five day non-discounted hotel and ticket package during the same dates will receive two extra nights of hotel accommodation and two more days added to their theme park tickets for free.

I still like the idea of 25 cent hotel rooms better!

    Disney also has a “Give a Day, Get a Day” program right now available to American and Canadian guests that rewards community service with a free one-day pass. It does come with date restrictions and there are a limited number of free passes. You can find the details on the Disney website.
