If you're so not afraid of pirates and want to save money on some of the first cruises of the season, this deal's for you. Crucon.com, an online cruise discount site, has an early bird special on cruises from Baltimore to Bermuda aboard the Norwegian Majesty.

Cruises departing May 31 and June 7 start at $519 per person for an inside cabin, $609 for oceanview. That's about $30-$40 less than Norwegian Cruise Line's official site. However, Crucon.com is throwing in a shipboard credit of $100-$150 per cabin for the first 100 cabins booked by Dec. 12. So that's the real deal.

Plus last week, Norwegian announced it was getting rid of fuel surcharges for all 2009 sailings, as long as the price of oil stays below $65 a barrel. For those who have already booked their trip, the cruise line is refunding the surcharges in the form of an onboard credit. On the same day, Royal Caribbean said "me too." Carnival was the first to drop the fuel fees, but it looks like the other cruise companies are falling in line. Any airlines wanna get onboard?
