I always find teletext the best source for offers on cruises. ITV teletext page 227 for Med, 228 for Luxury and from that page you can also access Worldwide. There are good deals out there if you can be flexible with dates and itineries, I know because I only go on special offers and have had some incredible deals ranging from £299 for a week to £495 for 2 weeks. Good luc.
