At some point, waiting in line outside Best Buy on Black Friday in the freezing cold to save $100 on a pair of Beats became as much a part of the holidays as Santa Claus and reruns of A Christmas Story. But for those of us who prefer our post-Thanksgiving coma to last past 4am, Black Friday holds about as much appeal as a day at the DMV.

Instead, many folks prefer to chill till Cyber Monday, and reward their patience (and/or love of sleeping in) with some ludicrous flight deals. And even then, don’t do a bunch of slapdash searching. We have you covered already. Here, in one place, for you, the lazy shopper and motivated traveler, are the best Cyber Monday travel deals this year, including flights, hotels, cruises, and private islands -- all at steep discounts.

Thinking about a trip to Disneyworld, or just wanna check out how cool a city Orlando actually is? Via Airlines will be offering 25% off all flights to and from Orlando-Sanford International Airport when you use the code CyberMonVia2017 to book online. Offer must be booked on November 27 for travel dates November 27 through March 31, 2018.

If Canada is in your plans, that country’s leading discount carrier WestJet will have fares starting at $99 each way to Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver, plus deals to Mexico from Canada if booked by 11:59pm on November 24. Here’s a breakdown of what they’re offering.

Air New Zealand -- those pioneers of zany in-flight safety videos -- will be offering 100 London-LA round trips for $231. Flights from London-Auckland will also be available from $527. If you miss those insane deals, they’ll also have $400 off US-Australia/New Zealand flights, and $100 off LAX-London.

Ever thought of going to Fiji? Well, maybe now’s the time. Fiji Airways is cutting prices nearly in half for flights from the West Coast to those Pacific islands. Flights from LAX, SFO, and Honolulu will go going for $799, with flights from those cities to Australia and New Zealand on sale for $899 through Monday.

Princess Cruises has two interesting deals available until November 29. If you’re looking to sail between now and the end of spring 2018, you can save up to $1,000 per stateroom or $500 per guest on select six- to-60-day cruises. Cruising next summer? Try the Sail Later, offer, where summer 2018-spring 2019 sailings bring three amenities for everyone in the stateroom, including free stateroom location upgrade, free gratuities, and up to $600 credit per stateroom.
