How to Save Money on a Cruise

Tips for saving money on rooms, excursions, drinks, etc.

Do you enjoy cruises? Perhaps you and your family enjoy going every few years, or you’re considering planning your first trip.

Either way, it’s always helpful to know how to save money when traveling.

#

Here are a few tips to think about:

Be Flexible, if possible – It can be helpful if your travel dates are flexible, as rates can sometimes fluctuate as travel dates approach, so watch for these changes.

Check for deals from the cruise line – Have you cruised before? If so, you may receive emails from those cruise lines with special promotions. If not, you may want to sign up for them! These companies often run promotions at a much lower rate.

Look for deals on other websites – You can also frequently monitor websites such as Expedia, Kayak, Priceline, etc. These types of sites allow you to compare prices among various cruise lines and destinations. 

Book close to home – Do you live near the coast? If so, consider booking so you can leave from a port near you. This can help you avoid extra travel fees to get to the location from where the cruise departs.

Book an interior room – How much time do you plan to spend in your room anyway? If you don’t mind not having a balcony, for example, book an interior room and use that money for excursions!

#

Gift card trick – Once you book your cruise and pay the deposit, you typically have some time before you have to pay the remaining balance. Look around for places you can purchase gift cards at a fraction of the face value (Raise.com, Gift Card Granny or Gift Card Mall).

Take advantage of the free events – Cruises often have awesome comedy shows, concerts, and performances that are free to passengers. Take advantage of the numerous free activities onboard that are available to passengers!

#

Book your next cruise onboard – Cruise lines often offer deals if you book your next cruise while onboard. Talk to the sales representative and ask about the promotions as well as the cancellation policy. 

However, don’t feel rushed if you’re not ready to book – Think about if you’re ready to go on another cruise, what you’d be willing to spend, etc. Don’t feel pressured to jump on this type of deal right away.

#

Bring drinks onboard – Carnival, for example, allows each passenger to bring one bottle of wine or champagne (up to 750ml) and a 12-pack of canned, non-alcoholic drinks onboard. 

**Don’t forget a wine opener, or you’ll have to pay a corking fee!

Purchase drinks at ports - It's often cheaper to purchase drinks once you're off the boats depending on where you're stopping. Drinks also tend to get cheaper the further away you get from the boat! 

We wish you luck on saving $$ during your next cruise!
