The Princess sale runs through Dec. 4 and is available to residents of the US, Canada, Puerto Rico and Mexico.

Meanwhile, MSC Cruises USA's Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale is already under way, and features some of the line's best rates on select sailings in the Caribbean, Bermuda and Europe, up to $200 in shipboard credit per stateroom, and balcony rooms priced at ocean-view rates.

MSC Divina, the ship dedicated to North American travelers, offers 2015 winter and spring dates from Miami to the Caribbean and Bermuda. Per person prices start at $99 for a two-night getaway, $299 for a four-night sailing and $349 for a seven-night cruise.

Black Friday deals are available for MSC Divina's trans-Atlantic spring cruise to the Mediterranean, with options to embark in Miami or New York. The starting price is as low as $55 per day.

Savings are available, too, on MSC Splendida and MSC Fantasia seven- and 11-night sailings in Europe.
