MSC's 'Suite Deal' offers savings on balcony suites

MSC Cruises is putting some of its balcony suites on sale for a number of Caribbean departures on the MSC Lirica in December 2007 through March 2008, with savings up to 60 percent off brochure prices.

For instance, you can land a balcony suite for as little as $999 per passenger on a seven-night West Caribbean itinerary out of Fort Lauderdale on December 14, with port stops in Key West; Montego Bay, Jamaica; Georgetown, Grand Cayman; and Cozumel, Mexico.

Or, you can opt for a 10-night roundtrip cruise with four departures from January to March 2008 from Fort Lauderdale and calling at Cozumel; Costa Limon, Costa Rica; Cristobal, Panama; Cartagena, Colombia; and Cayo Levantado, Dominican Republic, starting at $1,449 per passenger for a balcony suite.

Other itineraries ranging from $1,199 to $1,399 per passenger include island stops such as Puerto Rico, St. Maarten, St. Lucia, Antigua, Tortola, St. Thomas, and Nassau, depending on which voyage you choose.

If you plan to bring children along, this may not be the best deal for you, since you aren't allowed to combine it with MSC's "children cruise free" or any other promotion or discount. (Click here for my earlier blog post on the kids cruise free to the Caribbean deal.)

But if it suits your circumstances, you can book it by calling MSC at 800-666-9333 or a travel agent, and ask for the Suite Deal promotion. The offer expires September 30, 2007.
