Find a Cruise
Finding your perfect
I find that 80% of people either LOVE cruising or don’t like it, either because of a fear of water or perception of the large ships. And then there are the 20%, like me, that enjoy the perks and avoid the cons that come with all travel.
While I am not a fan of large crowds and canned experiences, the cruise lines today, both big luxury ships and river cruises, offer so many amenities including jaw-dropping ships, pools, spas, entrainment, and world-class dining in addition to access to great ports and ability to create your own experience. These perks along with the ease and time savings of traveling to multiple destinations without moving your luggage makes cruising a form of travel that I enjoy.
Finding the best deal for me is dependent on time, price, and comfort. I use CruiseDirect.com and either search by a favorite cruise line and by location to find itineraries the peak my interest. I also use CruiseSheet.com to watch prices on a select group of cruise lines.
I find that cruises are generally always offering some sort of promotion be it 2nd fare discounts, lower deposits, onboard credits or bundled deals. Cruising is a bigger purchase and with careful planning (what do you want out of the ship) and watching the fares about one year out, you can get a deal that is of value to you.
Deals here have no booking fees, no change fees, and add no markup. They charge the bare minimum that cruise lines allow.
