Going on a cruise summons up ideas of the ultimate in luxury and expense,
but it is actually quite possible to go on a cruise these days at prices
which compare well with other types of holiday.
A cruise offers the excitement of visiting a number of interesting
places, with the view from the window of your cabin always changing, yet
you are comfortable on board, not having to worry about making travel
arrangements to get from place to place.
There are cruises that cover the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, the
Baltic, the Black Sea, in fact just about every sea on the globe, taking
in a marvelous variety of enchanting ports and destinations.
But how do you get to go on a cruise at a price that will not break the
bank? One way to do this is to take a regular look at the bargains on
offer. All the major cruise lines, such as Carnival, Royal Caribbean,
Norwegian Cruise Line, Princess Cruises, Costa Cruises, Holland America
Line, and Thomson Cruises, do special offers and late deals which are
regularly updated.
But before you jump at the first tempting offer, there is still a little
more research to be done, and this is in checking thoroughly what is and
isn't included in the cost of your cruise. Most cruises include your
cabin, meals, entertainment, and possibly some tea, coffee and soft
drinks in the price. However there are a lot of other things that may or
may not be included, because the fact is that, with cheap cruises, the
cruise line does have to make up the revenue somewhere, and this may be
with certain hidden charges.
An additional cost may be the flight to the port where you are joining
your ship, and, if you want to keep costs down, one good way of doing
this may be picking a cruise where you can join the ship at a port that
is not too far from your home, and this will substantially cut down on
the cost.
The catering on cruises is generally to a high standard, and service very
good, with a choice offered of formal restaurants with waiters, or self-
service all-you-can-eat buffets. However, bear in mind that a lot of
cruise ships are now charging extra for certain a la carte items on the
menu, which are considered to be in some way over and above the standard
fair provided.
Cruise ships have lively bars, and there is entertainment in the
evenings, with live bands, pianists, and singers, and at present there
does not seem to be any trend to charge extra for this.
As well as the good life on board, one of the major attractions about
going on a cruise is the shore excursions, and if you are looking to save
money you need to check out whether the shore excursions will be included
in the cost of your cruise.
So, by bargain hunting, and by carefully adding up the quoted price of
the cruise plus any extras that have to be paid for separately, you could
be well on the way to finding a good deal.
Cruise1st offer cheap cruises to many destinations across the world. More
cruise lines offering more cruises at more affordable prices, meaning now
is the perfect time to enjoy cruising.
