Have you ever wondered how to get the best price for your cruise vacation? Well, let me count the ways! My family and I love cruising, and we have been to the “school of hard knocks” when trying to get a great cruise deal! So, I’m sharing what I’ve learned so far. I want your cruise vacation to be memorable and at a great price! Before we get into how to get the best price for your cruise, there are some simple steps I recommend you take to become a cruise insider. Cruise insiders stay on top of the deals and promotions as they become available so you know a great price when you see it, and you have lots of great choices before you decide.
To become a cruise insider:
- Establish an online account with the cruise line(s) you are interested in. This will enable you to compare cruises and save the ones of interest for later research. Once you cruise, this online account establishes a rewards member number that can be used to get freebies as you become a loyal customer.
- Use social media to get the latest on deals, promotions, etc. for the cruise lines. Actually follow them on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. If you have your notifications turned on, you will get a lot of traffic so be prepared. If you enjoy this type of thing, you will have loads of fun with this tip!
- Sign up for the cruise line newsletter. Deals and special promotions are also advertised in the newsletter. Also, most cruise lines have a blog. Lots of good info here as well.
- Don’t forget to sign up for the promotions that are sent out by email. You don’t want to miss anything!
