Saving with 6abc: Fall vacation planning

August 28, 2013

Knowing where and when to cruise this fall can mean big savings and Cruise Critic has tips on finding the hottest off-season deals.

The low season is typically from September to early January, not including holiday weeks.

You can save hundreds of dollars per person if you travel in this time rather than during peak season and the crowds will be lighter.

The only caveat is that hurricane season still poses a threat through November. Don't let the weather scare you off, but do get travel insurance!

Where to cruise in the low season?

Consider Europe from October to December and Hawaii from September to mid-December.

Visit the Mediterranean in October all the way until April.

Flights to Europe are generally lower around this time as well and your warmer ports include Spain, Morocco and the Canary Islands.
