There are two deals in this week’s Weekly Cruise Deal. One based on the price and the itinerary, the other…less so based on price and certainly on the itinerary. First up – a 14-night Holy Land cruise aboard the beautiful Celebrity Silhouette departing Rome starting at $799 per person plus taxes and port charges. Look at this itinerary.

Yes, I watch the news and read a few newspapers, so I’m aware that certain parts of this itinerary could prove challenging or be changed, but it’s too good not to share.

My other favorite for this week, an 11-night Black Sea cruise departing Istanbul aboard Celebrity Constellation. Here’s the itinerary.

While there’s much to like here, I think the ability to hotel 2-nights in Istanbul aboard the ship at the end of the cruise is very attractive. This cruise starts at $1,199 per person plus taxes and port charges. Not cheap, but not woefully expensive either. Each of these must be booked today for the current best pricing. I hope some of you are able to take advantage of these wonderful itineraries.
