    Default Purchasing a cruise on the date of sailing and paying only port charges?

    a while ago someone told me that if you show up at the cruise terminal on the morning of sailing, they will sell you empty, unbooked cabins for just the port charges because they'll make money off of the booze and other purchases you make while on the ship.

    has anyone else heard of this or done it? i tried to google it to make sure i wasn't dreaming this up but i couldn't find anything.

    thanks!

    Could be but if the ship is booked then you are out of luck...We sail about 20 minutes away from the Port of Tampa but we always buy our tickets a couple of months in advance to get the cabins we want. You might be staying in a less than desirable cabin

    i live very close to a port so all i would be out would be the time it took me to pack. and who really cares about the cabin? i'm never in there anyway.

    i need to find a way to confirm this. i wonder if a travel agent or the cruise line would tell the truth about it ahead of time.
