Black Friday, the U.S. shopping bonanza traditionally held the day after Thanksgiving, is now a firm fixture on the U.K. retail calendar. It takes its name from the fact that stores go into the black as shoppers snap up bargains.

Ocean and river cruise lines have embraced the trend with deals starting this week -- and if you include "Cyber Monday" -- running through to November 30.

Here's a round up of what's available so far, and we'll add other offers as they are announced.
