Ever Thought About Booking a Cheap Cruise?

Aug 5, 2008
Cruises - once only available to the rich and famous. Those with plenty of money and a separate tuxedo for every meal. That's not longer the case, with the introduction of several cruise lines offering cheap cruises.

Now available freely to all, there's a cruise for everyone. Young, old, couples, families, and singles. Weekend cruises, year long cruises, summer cruises and winter cruises. Exotic destinations, cosmopolitan destinations. Family orientated couples or adult only. Relaxed and casual or classic and formal, there's a cruise to suit everyone's requirements.

One common myth about cruise ships is that they are extortionately priced whilst onboard. The image of the rich and famous only taking cruise has led people to believe you must have deep pockets to be able to afford a coffee whilst onboard - this isn't the case! The majority of cruises are fully all inclusive. This includes all meals - breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper and as many snacks or meals in-between as you wish - and all soft drinks. The only things that aren't included are alcoholic beverages. However a large amount of cruise liners now offer unlimited alcohol for a small fee when booking. Usually worth taking advantage of if you are partial to a small tipple, this can make your cheap cruise even cheaper! What's more, a large amount of cruise lines now provide every booking with on board credit to spend on whatever you wish. This can be anywhere from 50 to a massive 250!

Cheap cruises offer the perfect insight into cruising for the first timer cruiser. Without paying thousands, you can have an all inclusive cruise around the Mediterranean to see if cruising is for you. Which I'm sure it will be - most people onboard a cruise are first timers or returning customers!

Although cheap cruises are more available, it doesn't mean they travel to unknown destinations. How does Barcelona or Palma sound? Maybe Rome or Pisa? Or one of the many destinations in the Caribbean? Whilst there are cruises that travel to some of the lesser known destinations, which are fantastic for those who are looking for a bit of excitement and intrigue on their holiday, the majority of cheap cruises travel popular, well known destinations.

When in port at one of the various locations around the world, there are always excursions available. Whether it's stopping at Naples and viewing Mount Vesuvius or getting a coach into Toulon and seeing the places that inspired Van Gogh, some of the sights are awe inspiring. However, these excursions aren't included and an additional fee is payable. The excursions aren't compulsory though, so your cruise can stay a cheap cruise by either walking into the town or simply staying onboard and enjoying the piece and tranquility.

Cheap cruises are becoming more and more available each year. The number of people cruising is expected to reach over 12 million this year, meaning more cruise lines offering more cruises at more affordable prices, meaning now is the perfect time to enjoy cruising.
