Here at Cruise118, we have access to a fantastic range of last-minute cruise deals. Our relationship with the cruise lines means that we're the first to know about last-minute price reductions and that we can secure exclusive prices which you simply won't find anywhere else.
Each of these last-minute cruise holidays departs in the next three months. Whichever you choose, you're guaranteed the best price when you book with Cruise118.
Last-minute cruise deals are available with the following cruise lines:
Booking late can be a good way to book a great cruise at a fantastic price. Cruise lines don't want to have empty cabins, so as the sailing date nears, they'll often drop the price in order to fill the last remaining staterooms. Sometimes, cruise lines even sell cabins at a loss, on the hope that they'll make the money back via the on-board casinos, boutiques, bars and excursions. However, spending your money in these on-board venues is completely optional, you're welcome to just book the bargain cabin-filler cruise, relax and enjoy your included meals and entertainment.
If you’re flexible on the dates that you can travel, as well as your destination, ship and stateroom type, then booking a late cruise deal can mean that you make big savings. Cruise lines usually offer incentives for booking early, such as free drinks, free gratuities, free port parking or free on-board spending money. However, once these offers have ended, if there are staterooms left on board, that's when prices may start to drop.
Last-minute cruise deals are available on cruises departing from UK ports such as Southampton, and also on fly-cruises which are packaged up to include flights from regional UK airports. Popular fly-cruises include Mediterranean cruises from ports such as Barcelona, Caribbean cruises departing from the USA and Transatlantic cruises which will include a one-way flight only. Cruises departing from the UK are popular with last-minute travellers because less planning is needed to hop on-board at Southampton.
Sometimes cabins which were previously filled become available again close to the departure date. Looking for cruise cancellations can be a great way to save money on your cruise. You’ll find last-minute cancellation deals or last-minute mini cruises available on cruises from the UK as well as fly-cruises.
If you have a set budget in mind you may be interested in only the cheap last minute cruise deals. After all, a cruise may have a huge discount, but if it's a suite on two-week sailing around Australia it's likely to be over budget!

Savings of 30%, 40%, 50% and even more are available for last-minute cruise bookers.
