Cruising for $100 per night or less is not a myth – but these deals do take a little hunting down. We’ve done the hard yards, so you can just go straight to the part where you save money.
The majority of the sailings are last minute fares. Some depart in February but we’ve also managed to find quite a few departing in March and May 2020. P&O Cruises even has fares that meet the cut for their February 2021 sailings.
We’ve found seven different lines offering itineraries to the Pacific Islands, Australia, New Zealand and Asia starting at just $79 per night.
