Vacation is a constant daydream on everyone’s mind; we can bet that instead of sitting at your nine-to-five with a cup of coffee, you’d rather be lounging onboard a cruise with a piña colada.
The main obstacle standing in the way of your fabulous cruise dream is the very reason you’re still sitting in that desk - the money.
Have no fear! You can still experience the rush of cruising to a faraway place without having to spend a fortune. Here are our top tips for getting the best bargain on your dream cruise.
Take to Social Media
The technology of the modern age gives you the leg up on cruise bargain hunting - you’re already miles ahead of those before you. Nowadays, we will post of Facebook or tweet details of major cruise discounts before they are posted anywhere else. Switching on those Twitter notifications or following us on Facebook sends cruise deals straight to your device. It’s a simple strategy, but it could save you hundreds if you play your cards right.
Not everyone has the luxury of being able to drop everything and sail the seas at a moment’s notice. But if you have a flexible job schedule and a thirst for adventure, this might be the strategy for you! Sometimes prices on those hard-to-fill ships will drop days before they set sail, or a cabin on a sold-out will suddenly open up. Keep your eyes open! You never know; you could find an amazing trip for an unbelievable price if you’re willing to be a last-minute cruiser.
Search for the Package Deals
Many of our cruise lines offer package deals for a lower price. This means you’ll be paying for a bundle of cruise, airfare, and other necessities, all in one. Travel simplified - plus, you might save a few hundred dollars! Check out these package deals our cruise lines are offering: (idk how to find these?? Can you insert a link)
Summer Vacation? Too Mainstream
Summer is high cruising season - this is when families will flock to the ships, and prices will soar. If possible, go for the spring and fall months when planning your cruise. Book months in advance, when prices are lower, and choose to cruise just a little before or after the large crowds hit. Lower crowds, lower prices, and slightly lower temperatures all make for an unforgettable cruise experience, wherever you go.
Book in Bulk
Family reunion, anyone?
A lot of cruise lines will offer discounted rates for large groups - this may even include special goodies onboard! Usually, this applies to groups with over 15 passengers. So, look out for those bulk deals and be ready to gather the extended family for endless memories at a cheap price.
Look for Special Discounts
Are you a senior citizen, or have you served in the U.S. military? Both of these things will most likely earn you a special discount with most cruise lines. Our cruise lines want to honor you and make sure you have the most comfortable, amazing experience possible with them. Along with this, if you’ve cruised with a specific cruise line a few times before, this may also get you a special discount! Check with the cruise line you’re considering to see if they offer these special rates.
