Cruise deals and money-savings tips

from the Editors and Publishers of Cruise Traveler Magazine

Finding a good deal on a cruise is why you are here. It's why you are willing to spend hours browsing the web in search of the best cruise deals around. In this economy, more than ever,  a cheap cruise deal can make the difference between enjoying a vacation at sea or just taking a "staycation"* at home. That's why we've come up with the best and fastest and easiest way for you to search for great cruise deals. After all, who really wants to stay home! First, you could search for cruise deals by cruise line, cruise region and departure city, and you could be more specific and do a detailed search by region, line or departure month. Or you could search using a list of words like family cruise, holiday cruise, transatlantic cruise, Caribbean cruise, river cruising or luxury cruise deals.

Today's top discount cruises

Everyone's favorite kind of deal is an unbeatable one - and we've got plenty of those. If you're a fan of low, low rates, then click on any of the links to you left and below.  Many of these cruises come with great extras too, like free shipboard credit, free upgrades, and more on select sailings. So set sail, and save a ton.


"Shopping on the Web can lead to savings on the water " "They post regular discounted fares for check often." Joseph Siano  New York Times

But wait a minute. Doing it that way is the long way. Check the list to the right and you will see the most popular cruise-related keywords that people search for with Google. This is also the list that advertisers use to determine where those Google ads appear on web sites. So, it is reasonable to assume that if you search for a cruise deal using these words you will find that great deal in no time at all. And we all know time is money.

The keywords for your cruise deal search should as relevant as possible to what you are looking for. Google uses your keyword entry information to tune your search results to ensure that the results meet your expectations as close as possible and to promote the most relevant content for your review. Good keywords are words and short phrases that describe best what you want.

If you're using keywords and not seeing all the cruise deals you expect to appear in your search results, try other keywords and see if the listings you want appear. Using the wrong keywords can restrict your results, waste time and limit your success. You don't want to have dinner with the guy and his wife in the next cabin and find out they paid hundred's of dollars less for their cruise than you did.

If you're looking for more inspiration about where, how and when to find cruise deals, search for articles that spotlight and feature cruise deals (like last-minute cruises and weekend sailaway deals under $49 per night!) Search for cruise reviews as well as a collection of feature articles that give expert advice on how to make your cruise dollars work for you and when to book for the best deals.


Cruise Watch Brief...

by Raye & Marty Trencher
Everything you need to know about booking a cruise as cheap as possible...

If we could suggest just one thing

you could do to save money on your next cruise, it would be this: sign up for free cruise deal alerts. You could be spending hours even days searching all over the internet to find a low cruise fare. But usually, the price differences from one site to the next, are well... next to nothing. Most cruise fare sites pretty much use the same computer generated data provided by the cruise lines. That said, some online travel agents may do a better job at finding the relatively few fares that the cruise lines don't publish and may sell only on their own sites.

There is no one “super” cruise search site!   The only sites that perform better on cruise fares are those selling “group” fares, but these often come with caveats and extra restrictions, such as membership fees , non-refundable conditions or worse, you may have to dine with people you don't like onboard ship.

The big savings come from realizing that cruise fares do fluctuate, often every day, sometimes more than once a day, just like airfares. You may not have time to check them hour-by-hour or day-by-day, but cruise fare-tracking sites do, and will alert you when a cruise fare goes down, sometimes by hundreds of dollars. And often, even if you have a deposit down on that cruise, your travel agent can go back to the cruise line and get them to lower your fare!

So sign up, it’s free! Some alert systems require that you first search for a fare before they’ll offer free email alerts; others let you sign up before searching. Here you have no restrictions. Just sign up. Join in. And watch your e-mail box for the latest cruise deal offers.
