How To Cruise Cheap By Finding The Best Deals!

Aug 17, 2007
Cheap cruise deals can often be a misleading term for first time cruise enthusiasts. People may be able to cruise cheap but they certainly won't vacation cheaply.

Cheap deals simply means getting a bargain-based price when deals are being offered and being in the right place at the right time to snap one up. There are any number of reasons why prices may be offered at a low price.

- It could be off-season and companies are having more difficulty filling their staterooms.
- It's getting close to departure date and there are staterooms still available.
- Promotional offers being offered at any given time.

What Are The Reasons To Cruise?

The most important aspect of choosing an ocean going holiday is getting the best value for your money. Once the deal is booked you should have explored every angle possible to get the best deal. Quite often, people are amazed at exactly what they are getting for their dollar including entertainment, dining and accomodation. This is quite often what the term cheap cruise deal refers to.

Cruising is the best value for money holiday experience on the planet. Better still, ships today are getting bigger and bigger and the amenities are such that there's no need to leave the ship!

Finding Cheap Deals

Travel consultants should be your first port of call. They are privvy to deals and information which the general public don't have access to. When booking, always explain your circumstances and the criteria you're after. Resist the temptation to be persuaded to switch to something just because it's going at a cheap rate at that time. Remember, you'll be on a ship and probably in a different country so the initial consultation is vital.

If flexibility is a problem then book early. Quite often, discounts are available for early birds however, if you are flexible, then cheap deals are excellent value at the last minute. This is usually about a month before the ship is due to depart. A good way to stay in touch with these late deals is to sign up for travel agency newsletters or alerts.

There is some conjecture whether it's feasible to check with the companies themselves. There is a consensus it's more expensive than booking through a cruise discounter. Maybe so however, staying in touch with cruise lines can be beneficial. They provide excellent information and getting on their mailing lists can only keep you up to date with the latest offerings in the cruise world.

So in a nutshell, finding cheap cruise deals seems to hinge on booking early or having the flexibility to book late.
