With the launch of new ships amid a tough economy, the luxury cruise market is offering bargain rates. Here’s the Miami Herald with more:

When its new $250 million Seabourn Odyssey set sail last month in the Mediterranean, the 450-passenger ship offered pricing discounts of 65 percent. Like hotels and other travel experiences, cruises have suffered during the recession, and prices on mass-market lines — like Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Line — have hovered around $100 per person per day. But the luxury market has suffered the biggest drop of any cruise sector; rates now sometimes dip below $300 per person per day, down from brochure rates as high as $900 per person per day. – from Miami
