Vacation Packages - Websites offer Cheap Rates on Cruises
May 30th, 2006
If you ever thought about taking a vacation on a cruise ship this
summer, you might want to check out the discount rates that are
available for this type of travel. There are numerous websites that are
booking cruises for name brand ships at discounted rates.
There are a variety of cruises. One cruise ship travels all the islands
in Hawaii. That way you can see all of Hawaii not just one island. You
can travel international locations or stay close to home. If you like
to see a lot of places and donít like the logistics of hotel rooms and
driving from location to location you probably would enjoy a cruise
You can book trips from 3 days up to 10 days in length. If you want to
travel on a budget you can get inside rooms that do not have a view of
the ocean. This offers the greatest discounts when taking a cruise.
One way to get a great discount is booking at the last minute. The
reason cruise ships discount at the last minute is that they will lose
profit on the empty rooms. Better to book it and make at little profit
than none at all.
Another way to get a great discount is to travel off season. That means
when everyone else isnít traveling. This can be great for seniors and
people that have a flexible schedule as they can take advantage of big
savings on booking a cruise during the off season. Most people travel
in the summer. Thanksgiving and Christmas break can be another busy
You should shop for cruises on a number of travel websites. The reason
for this is that you will find they vary on rates and various
promotions. Some of the travel websites that specialize strictly in
cruise vacations may be your best bet if you plan on going to a
particular port because you live near it. They have an easier search by
port location. They also offer more information on the cruise ships and
travel promotions. You can often get educated on the types of ships and
what amenities are included.
You will want to compare Expedia and Priceline for their booking costs,
especially if you plan to fly to the departure port of the ship. It
might be a better price with the bundled airline tickets. It could also
be possible to book the flight tickets separate from the cruise tickets
if this offers the most savings.
The more information you can gather about the cruise the better. If you
look for Celebrity Cruises or Carnival you can visit their main website
as well for complete information about their cruises and their ships.
Carnivalís website is a bit annoying because you need to register to get
more information. Celebrity gives you a great idea varying rates due to
demand, which goes to show that when you travel is an important way to
save money when you travel.
If it gets to complicated you can always stop in to your local travel
agent for help. They have a great amount of insight as to which cruise
to take and what features are best when traveling on a cruise.
