The Real Deal: Ten nights in an ocean-view stateroom aboard Royal Caribbean's Radiance of the Seas, departing from San Diego, with stops in Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlán, Acapulco, Ixtapa, and Puerto Vallarta before returning to San Diego; all meals and nonalcoholic beverages; a $50 credit good for all onboard spending; and port charges, from $669 per person — plus about $99 in taxes.

When: Dec. 11, 2009.

The fine print: Note that the starting price reflects a promotion that OVC is running for residents of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, Nevada, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Washington. Residents of other states should expect to pay $150 to $200 more per person. Does not include taxes of about $99 per person. Based on double occupancy; single supplement is $1,221. Read these guidelines before you book any Real Deal.

Book by: No deadline; based on availability. But we suggest booking as soon as possible; interior cabins have already sold out.

Contact: Online Vacation Center, 800/780-9002, onlinevacationcenter.com.

Why it's a deal: In a recent Kayak search, we found this exact cruise starting at $819 for an ocean-view room, before taxes. When booking through Online Vacation Center, you'll save about $150 per person.

More: Add $140 per person for a balcony stateroom.
