P&O Cruises may have gone against the grain with their ‘Not-So-Black Friday’ sale, but there are some really fab fares on offer.

Cunard’s ‘Black Tie Friday’ has got us planning to start the New Year in New York, thanks to Transatlantic cruises from £599pp including flights!
Fly into New York on 3 January 2016 and spend a little time in the city, before joining the iconic Queen Mary 2 for seven amazing nights sailing the Atlantic Ocean. At £699pp, we can’t think of a better way to start the New Year?
Fred Olsen’s Black Friday sale is offering a huge 50% off selected mini cruises. The 12 December 2015 70s Party Cruise offers fares starting at just £160pp and is the perfect excuse for a boogie – 50% off all-inclusive drinks packages will make sure the night goes with a swing too! The 3-night itinerary includes an overnight stay in Zeebrugge, so you can take the opportunity to get festive with a trip to the chocolate-scented, tinsel-trimmed stalls of Bruges Christmas Market.
Our pick of the best Princess Cruises Black Friday deals include a 11-night Canaries sailing on 26 April 2016 at £699pp. Join the Emerald Princess as she sails the Canary Islands, making the most of the sun, sea and sand in Gran Canaria, Santa Cruz De Tenerife, Lanzarote, Madeira and Vigo, before returning to the UK just in time to show off your tan as the weather starts to warm up back home.
Alternatively, a 7-night France and Spain itinerary at £499 departs on 7 May 2016 and sees you visit the historic cities of La Coruna and Bilbao, the wine regions of Bordeaux and the pretty harbour of St Peter’s Port in the Channel Islands.
Along with some amazing Black Friday cruise fares, Princess Cruises is also offering travel from just £10 per day for kids and 3/4th passengers!
The islands around Greece are soaked in sun and steeped in ancient history, and this 7-night Celebrity Cruises sailing on board Celebrity Equinox promises the chance to see the sights in luxury style.
Book an ocean view cabin or above on the 11 June 2016 sailing and you will even receive FREE flights! Fares start at £899pp (for a balcony cabin!) and you will start your Greek exploration with an overnight stay in Athens, before visiting Santorini, Rhodes, Mykonos and Ephesus/Kusadesi/Izmir.
