All aboard! We’re taking a cruise. Travelzoo’s senior editor Gabe Saglie shares how to save on cruises for this season. He says take advantage of wave season.

• What is Wave Season?
o Takes place every Jan.-March – Black Friday for cruise fans (which lasts 3 months)
o Deep discounts across the board w/best prices on (1)last-minute sails and (2)long-lead cruises
• Where Will the Biggest Savings Be in 2017?
o Alaska: look for the best prices on the “edges” of the season: May and September
o Europe: best bargains on river cruises – thanks to the addition of new ships in the last 2 to 3 years
o Caribbean/Mexico: value year-round, but esp. late summer/fall and Thanksgiving-Christmas
• What to expect?
o It’s all about incentives: look for perks, inc. kids sail FREE, free drinks packages and upgrades
o Save by booking things like excursions and spa treatments before departure
o Air-inclusive: look for far-off cruises that include airfare as an added bonus
