The sale applies to all voyages except for Cruisetours and sailings in the Galapagos Islands.

Holland America’s Black Friday Offer runs from November 17 to 27th this year. Those who book during this period will receive prepaid gratuities (for the first and second guest in a cabin) and be able to get up to 40 percent off their cruise-only fare.
This offer is combinable with the line’s Have It All premium cruise package which includes four perks: shore excursions, a beverage package, a specialty dining package, and wifi.
The prepaid gratuities offer is valid on holiday 2022 sailings through open 2024 cruises. It excludes Grand Voyages and itineraries that are four days or shorter.

Alaska Cruisetours are also included in the offer.

5. Royal Caribbean
Through Thursday, November 24th, Royal Caribbean is running its Thanksgiving Sale. It includes up to $600 off the total cost of the cruise fare, depending on the stateroom category and voyage length. For example, on sailings six nights or longer it offers $100 savings on interior and oceanview cabins, $150 off for balconies, and $600 off for suites.
Royal Caribbean is also running a Kids Sail Free offer that applies to new bookings made between November 17 to 30th on cruises departing from December 17 to April 30, 2025.

For Cyber Monday, the line is offering $1 deposits on Monday, November 28th. This can be combined with the Black Friday sale. $1 deposits mean that guests can reserve a cruise for $1, and do not have to pay the remaining balance of their voyage until 90 days prior to their trip. Because of this, it does not apply to sailings that depart within 90 days of November 28th.
The Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales are available to residents 21 and older of the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Bermuda.
7. Virgin Voyages

From November 22nd to December 6th, those who book a November 2022 to April 2023 cruise will also receive 50 percent off the cruise fare for the second guest in a cabin, OR will not pay a single supplement fee if traveling solo.
Cunard’s Black Friday Sale runs through November 27th. Guests can take advantage of 50 percent reduced deposits, meaning they’ll pay a 12.5 percent deposit on the cost of the cruise fare vs. the standard 25 percent for voyages shorter than 31 nights. For cruises 31 nights or longer, deposits will be 10 percent instead of 20 percent.
The sale also includes $25 to $300 per person in onboard credit, depending on the type of stateroom booked and the length of the cruise.
