Cruise Deal

Secrets Revealed!

Keyword list helps cruisers find cruise deals online. How to steps make the process faster, easier and more productive.

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!
Blog Categories: Find out more about your favorite cruise line, cruise ship, destination and more. Click on a cruise line's name and we'll take you to hundred's of great cruise deals.
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.

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.

Ready, Set. Sail

So, let's get started... use the meta-search tool below. Enter a keyword ( see the list on right-hand column for suggestions ) and your on your way. This handy tool lets you compare prices on cruise vacations across various online booking sites (such as Travelocity, Expedia, or Priceline)  as well as traditional "brick and mortar " travel agencies like AAA, American Express, Thomas Cook. Liberty and Travel Agents in and around your home town.

On some web sites you will find Google ads prominently displayed (see examples below). The ads that appear are relevant to the content of the page you are viewing. Therefore they are an excellent place to start your search as they let you skip the time-consuming step of browsing all over the internet looking for a good cruise deal (try it and see). Now, they are advertisements, so as always "buyer beware" and check out the companies background before making any purchase online. You don't want to find yourself at the dock waiving at the ship "goodbye", because you thought you had a legitimate ticket, but instead got a worthless piece of paper from some internet scam.
