Cunard cruise sale features free balcony upgrade, on-board credit

Los Angeles Times Daily Travel & Deal blogger

Luxury cruise line Cunard launched a one-week sale Monday that offers a nice upgrade on selected 2013 trips: a cabin with balcony for the price of an ocean-view room.

And some spending money is thrown in too in the form of on-board credit. One example: The classic transatlantic crossing from England to New York in spring aboard the Queen Mary 2 starts at $1,345 per person.

The deal: The Cunard sale applies to transatlantic crossings as well as cruises to the Baltic, the Mediterranean, Scandinavia, Iceland and other destinations. (Click to see the list of selected cruises on sale.) Prices for the free balcony upgrade and the on-board credits vary by cruise.


When: The offer is good through Oct. 29 for selected cruises.

Tested: I checked online and found availability for an April 26 departure from England for the $1,345 per person price. The deal comes with $100 in ship-board credit per cabin (airfare not included). The deal is good for those who can make the dates and the destinations work -- and value a bit more luxury with their Cunard experience.
