There are a few ways you can get discounts on cruises and make your money stretch further for your cruise holiday. Consider doing the following.
Using your credit card rewards.
You can use your rewards that you’ve earned from your credit card towards your cruise holiday. Usually, the redemption will equate to a cash discount on the cruise.
In some cases, you may be able to save a few hundred dollars when booking your cruise holiday.
Book a group cabin.
The cost reduces if you book a cruise cabin with a large travel group. For example, you can typically book a 4-person cabin at half the price compared to booking a 2 person cabin.
Avoid peak travel times.
Cruise holidays over popular holiday periods can have inflated prices. If you can, try to take your cruise holiday during the low-season or just outside of the peak holiday periods.
Book cruise holidays on cheaper ships.
These typically provide cheaper deals, but are still comparable to the modern ships in terms of the overall holiday experience.
Track any price drops.
Use an alert service and call as soon as you are notified about any pricing drops.
Try to get deals through travel agents.
Check with travel agents that get special rates to see if you can get a discount on your cruise.
