If you’d love to see several far-flung places in a single trip without going over budget, then read on, fellow traveler. A cruise could quite possibly be just what you need. This, without any further ado, here are 20 tips to help you find cheap cruise deals.
20 Tips To Help You Find Cheap Cruise Deals
1.Stay current on cruise trends
Look into the industry. Global Travel Collection representative Marni Becker reports that trends vary depending on “the type of cruise line you are sailing on. She told the press that some cruise lines aren’t “sailing at full inventory yet” and some are actually offering “most cabin categories (except suites) at very low rates.” Cruises on deluxe lines may be in high demand but prices on cruises to places like the Bahamas, the Caribbean, and Mexico are a bit more fluid as some lines are trying to entice people to return to cruising.
2. Look online for flash sales and price drops
Check out cruise line sites and such travel booking sites as Cruise Critic, CruiseDirect, Expedia, and GoToSea for flash sales and deals. Watch sites like Cruisewatch and Cruise Fever for up-to-date price drops. Websites like Tripadvisor put together the best deals offered from all the cruise line and travel agency websites.
Flash sales occur closer to your date of departure. That’s when they offer “no frills” prices on any remaining inventory, at low rates minus some of the built-in amenities, and are generally available only for limited sailings.
