Cruise lines are having trouble filling cabins in the Caribbean this season.

That's good news for you. In fact, this may be the best time to nab a bargain.

In a recent conference call to the financial community, Carnival Corporation's Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Howard Frank admitted bookings and fares for the giant cruise conglomerate are soft.

"It's been a challenging environment in the Caribbean," Frank told analysts.

The hardest hit, he said, were the shorter three-, four- and five-day cruises.

To prop up corporate coffers, Carnival Corp. is aggressively cutting prices for its fleet of ships in the Caribbean, Frank noted.
