January is the time when cruise companies offer mega sales on their fares.
Travelocity.com, an online travel company, has announced cruise offers for the 2013 Wave Season.
The Travelocity Cruise Super Sale will run until January 31, 2012, and is offering cruises at discounted rates of up to 65 percent. The sale is also offering up to £300 in consumer cruise cash to spend on onboard cruise experiences, including spa treatments, specialty dining and excursions. The sale fares are available for travel from January 24, 2013 to September 30, 2013, for cruise vacations of three nights or more.
On average, customers can save £600 or more when opting for a cruise vacation instead of taking a land vacation.

We offer exclusive deals tailored to all types of travelers, and whether consumers are looking to book an activity-filled vacation or a relaxed trip, Travelocity can help them create a unique travel experience.’
