Form a Group. Save BIG!
Did you know the most overlooked way to stretch your dollar is to form your
own cruise group. Traveling with family or friends, or both, can lower costs
enough so you can travel even when the economies not that good. Of course,
most of us don't have the time - or inclination - to make the calls and do
the research for an entire group. It's a big job. On the other hand, booking
a group cruise is easy for a professional travel agent. Your agent can
create a package that works for you, while your group will realize
across-the-board savings from group discounts that your agent discovers.
