Last minute cruises out of Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale Florida are a proven way to get a bargain. Cruise lines sometimes markdown the rates on leftover cabins when the departure date of a cruise gets closer. A last minute cruise is usually within about 30 days of departing.
The downside to trying for a last minute cruise deal is the ship you want may fill up and not offer last minute deals. And even if there are bargains available, your choices will be very limited. You may not get the type of stateroom that you prefer.
