JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Bad publicity has the cruise industry offering deep discounts to boost sales.

There's been one story after another about how airfares are higher this summer.

The cost of attractions are higher, hotel rates in much of America, much, much higher than last summer. So where do you go for a deal? Not on land, not in the air, it's on the seas!

The cruise industry is hurting for certain because of all the negative publicity that carnival cruises has put up with, because of the mishaps they've had with various ships. Cruises are something that people are not booking, so the deals are extraordinary!  

Did you know recently there were deals on Carnival ships were so cheap that they were less expensive per night than staying in a super budget type of motel? That's right, with all your meals included and everything else.

So if you're looking for the bargain of the summer, I've got to tell you, it's on cruise ships. And if you can sail in September, the deals are just about the best ever!

So go book a bargain!
