There is an art to finding a good deal on a cruise from San Francisco. We can lead you to some cruise bargains.
Timing is an important factor in getting a discount cruise. If you book early (about a year before departure) you can get a little bit better price because they want to get some passengers commited early. Booking early also gets you the best selection of available cabins.
An alternative to booking early is to wait and try for a cheap last-minute cruise. About 30 to 60 days before the cruise, the cruise line may cut prices on the remaining cabins to fill them. Sometimes the reductions are dramatic. This strategy is a gamble because the ship may sell out and you'll be left at home.
Repeat customers to cruise lines are also offered exclusive cruise bargains. Be sure to sign up for the program when you take your first cruise.
