If you would like to travel cheaply, you have to realize one basic fact about the travel industry: they want to fill up every possible spot, something which they rarely manage to do. Sure, they will sell cruises, hotel vacations, airline tickets, and whatever else for high prices when they can, but they will also sell them for quite a bit less when they have to. Finding the cheapest cruise deals is all a matter of savvy shopping. You have to know where to look, you have to look there often, and most importantly, you have to be flexible about your travel dates and destinations.
There are many different cheap cruise deal sites to look at. I have a friend who is sort of a connoisseur of cheap cruise deals, and she clued me in about a lot of these websites. Many last minute travel companies offer new sales once a week. If you’re willing to wait until the absolute last minute to decide where you are going to go for your vacation, you can take advantage of these bargains. Sometimes, you can save as much as 50% off the regular rate if you are lucky and spot the right cheap cruise deals.
Another great way to get cheap cruise deals is to travel in the off-season. Everything costs more during the summer time with the exception of chips to ski lodges. If you are willing to take some time off in the winter, you can still have a great time and save money. We took an Alaska winter cruise last year and were completely stunned. It was one of the best times we’ve ever had. Of course, it required some sacrifices – no sunbathing for one thing – but it still was great. We got to go whale watching, and to explore some of the most fascinating territory in the entire United States.
There are also cheap cruise lines that are there to help the budget traveler out with great discount tickets. With these kinds of cheap cruise deals, of course, you get what you pay for. You will not have the same degree of luxury, so they are not really for people who enjoy being pampered. If the main attraction for you is going on the water, however, they are definitely worth considering. You can save some money and have a great time while you are at it. What could be better than that?
