Time for a Caribbean vacay! “Last-minute cruise deals for January have already dropped below $60 per night in some cases, which represents discounts of more than 50 percent,”reports CNBC. Caribbean cruises will continue to be cheap in 2014, as lines launch new routes and bring new ships, such as Carnival Splendor and Norwegian Getaway. “They have a lot more berths to fill,” said Stephanie Serino, a luxury cruise consultant with Tzell Travel Group in New York.
Also, airfare to island destinations will cheaper, as well. JetBlue just announced it would expand service to the Caribbean with five new routes to two new destinations, Port-au-Prince in Haiti and Port of Spain in Trinidad and Tobago. “They come into the market and they take over the market,” said Serino. That forces legacy carriers to compete with better-priced fares.
