Go luxe

If you've always wanted to cruise on a high-end line, now's the time to get serious. According to Johanne Jainchill in today's Travel Weekly cruise edition, luxury lines are offering some remarkable deals.

Crystal is offering a $2,000 per couple onboard credit on many cruises, including some starting at $3,240 per person.

Seabourn has reduced some of its European cruises as much as 65 percent off the published brochure fare. A seven-day Mediterranean cruise starts at $2,999 per person - and that's inclusive, liquor and all.

Silversea Cruises has taken 50 percent off of its fares to the Arctic and Antarctic as well as to Europe.

SeaDream Yacht Club even has a promotion for tax accountants, a nine-day Caribbean cruise leaving San Juan April 17 priced at $2,999, considerably lower than the brochure rate of $7,400.

If that works, perhaps they'll offer a break to the hard-pressed clients of those tax pros who have to pony up money to Uncle Sam.

As usual, these deals are available through travel agents. If you don't have one, find a cruise specialist at
