On sale for 72 hours only.
Carnival Cruises has unleashed a flash 72-hour sale with sails from $72 per person, per day.
It's on now and must end at 11:59pm on 9 August, giving you that small window of time to sail away on the cheap.
You can get booking through CruiseAway here now or read on for the finer details.
All-up there are seven sailings to book with more than a handful coming in at that super sweet $72 per person, per day price tag. FYI: This rate is based on twin share of an interior room.
