We recently met a couple who claimed that they have done some traveling by actually showing up at the cruise terminal the day a cruise is scheduled to set sail and offering $100 for a cabin. Their theory is that empty cabins mean lost income for the ship (no one in the cabin to gamble, tip, shop, etc.) and that you can do it for just about any cruise.
In this era of heightened security, I am more than a little skeptical that this is actually do-able, but figured if anyone would know it would be you guys and gals!
Anyone ever heard of this/seen it/done it?
We have a cruise terminal about 1 mile away and I could get a suitcase ready
