Both Carnival Cruise Lines and Norwegian Cruise Line launched three-day cruise sales with perks such as reduced rates, upgrades and on-board credits.

Carnival's 72-hour-sale comes on the heels of its promotion in February. Like then, this sale includes free best-available upgrades as well as reduced rates. The offer is for any cruise sailing between now and December 2011. Previous guests may also be eligible for further discounts.

Norwegian is offering up to $250 in on-board credits for new bookings fleet-wide as well as free cabin upgrades for its "Freestyle Dash" promotion. Cruisers can also benefit from a reduced deposit requirement.

Options include seven-day Eastern Caribbean cruises out of Miami, with stops in St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Nassau; seven-day Western Mediterranean cruises from Barcelona, Spain, with stops in Naples, Italy, Rome, Florence/Pisa, Nice, France, and Provence; and six-day Greece-Croatia cruises, with stops in Venice, Italy, Dubrovnik, Croatia, Athens and Olympia; among others.

Carnival's cruise sale ends on March 17, while Norwegian's cruise sale ends on March 18.
