About Us

Cruises For Less is part of the Online Vacation Center Holdings Corp (ONVC) family of brands. In business for nearly 50 years, ONVC utilizes decades of experience and expertise to provide exceptional cruise deals. As one of the country's largest cruise retailers, we are able to negotiate exclusive rates and special extras you won't find anywhere else! We promise that at the time of booking, our offer will beat or match the lowest available price advertised by competitors—backed by our Low Price Guarantee.

Cruises For Less partners with all major cruise lines and strives to offer you the best value. In partnership with our sister company, Online Vacation Center, we are proud to hold high-producing agent status with every major cruise line, including Disney Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean International, Norwegian Cruise Line and more! Each year since 2016 and in 2013, we were named a Celebrity Cruises' Partner of the Year, and we have been awarded as a top-producing Platinum Circle agency with Viking River Cruises each year since 2010.

Cruises for Less BEST Price Guarantee

Cruises for Less wants to give their clients the peace of mind knowing that they are getting the absolute BEST price. If you find a lower price online—in U.S. dollars, advertised anywhere—within 24 hours of booking with us, we will match that price if you can show us where you found the lower price. The lower price must be for the same cruise including same ship, sail date, stateroom category and fare code restrictions; additional restrictions may apply.

Our Commitment

While ONVC has frequently been involved in charitable giving in past years, in 2019 we formalized our Corporate Social Responsibility Pledge committed to local charitable efforts and reducing our environmental impact.

Environmental Impact

ONVC is committed to the reduction of the environmental impact of our business through conservation and waste reduction practices. Our commitment to environmental protections begins in-house with our pledge to use environmentally friendly office supplies, reducing our waste and consumption, introducing recycling practices, energy conservation and better product sourcing including procuring supplies from Green vendors who are likewise committed to environmental sustainability practices.

Our employees are committed as well and have formed a voluntary Eco-Committee that assesses the environmental impact of our purchasing decisions and spearheads environmental sustainability initiatives and beach clean-up efforts.

Community Outreach

ONVC is committed to providing employees with opportunities to support charitable organizations through many means including volunteering, fundraising and donation drive efforts. Past efforts have included local beach clean-ups, food drives, toy drives and fundraisers.
