Does anyone have any info on going to the docks the day of cruises and getting last minute deals?
I have heard that they practically give away the cruise if they have any cabins left.
Just curious because we are not sure what days we are going to be able to go over the holidays so we can't make reservations ahead of time.

Just found my own answer. Cruise lines have to submit the passenger manifest 24-48 hours before the cruise leaves so I guess the days of going to the dock last minute are over.

Discount Cruises, Last Minute Cruises, Cruise, Cruise Line, Cruise Vacation

Google "last minute cruise web site" (no quotes). Might get lucky...

Yeah. We tried that once in Vancouver. We were tired of the car, so we thought we'd get on a cruise ship. No luck due to the manifest requirement.
