We just found that Bolsover Cruise Club is offering a 14-night cruise to Ireland, the Norwegian fjords and Belgium for £649 per person. This cruise cost £50 more recently.
This deal is for a summer sailing, departing on 7 September from Southampton aboard Royal Caribbean International's Independence of the Seas. This is a great deal as we rarely see voyages with this cruise line at less than £45 per night. The price includes 14 nights' accommodation in an Interior Stateroom, all meals and snack onboard, plus activities and entertainment on board.
The itinerary mixes city breaks, with stops in Cork (from Cobh) and Bruges (from Zeebrugge), and a fjords cruise. Norwegian ports visited include Olden, Alesund, Flåm, Stavanger, Kristiansand and Oslo. Click here for more information.
A fjords cruise is a "real antidote to stress", says cruise expert Douglas Ward, who praises Norway's "picture-perfect fishing villages, dramatic rock formations and waterfalls". Cruise International calls the region "a favourite" among cruisers.
Independence of the Seas caters for everyone with a good mix of family-friendly and adults-only areas. The Royal Promenade, with its variety of dining and shopping options, is one of the main attractions. There's a huge range of facilities, from a spa and a casino to a mini golf course, and an ice rink featuring ice-dance shows in the evenings.
Travelzoo tip: Bolsover Cruise Club is also offering a contribution towards your onboard gratuities when you pre-pay at time of booking***.
