How to Find a Cheap Cruise – Guaranteed Strategy, $50 per day or less
We read every publication on the topic of, “How to find a cheap cruise.” We continuously find the same, old tips. We’ll first go through these “old-school” strategies, and look at why they’re not idea. We’ll then show you the BEST Booking Hack to Cruise Cheap… specifically, for less than $50 per night!
I’m sure you’ve seen these before.
OLD ways to find a Cheap Cruise
We’re often told that booking a cruse early is a good strategy to scoring the best cruise price. The reason being is, that if the price drops, we can recover the difference in onboard credit. You’re even able to set up a cruise price alert to get notified when there’s a discount. We see a few things wrong with this plan. For starters, it involves a lot of work. You have to track the price from the second that you book, until you board the ship. The cruise line may decide to offer a better deal at some point. If you’re lucky enough to catch it in time, you’ll need to call your agent or cruise line to fight for the difference. If it happens to actually be a discount for your same cabin subtype, then you can possibly recover the difference. All of this will take a lot of time, effort, and you’ll still be left with onboard credit instead of cash.
Use a Cruise Agent
We love cruise agents and think they add a lot of value to the booking process. But, if we’re looking specifically at “how to find a cheap cruise,” an agent will never be as good as technology. With technology, we’re able to look at millions of cruise deals in the time it would take a person to look at a dozen. You should use technology to find a cheap cruise, then an agent to book that deal.
Book Last Minute Cruise Deals
This can be a great way to find a cheap cruise… but, only if you have tons of flexibility. There are a few good sites to find last minute cruise deals. For most of us, our “time” is something we don’t have as much control over as we’d like. We’re not able to hop on cruises at the drop of a hat. For those that are, you’ll still need a tool to help you find last minute cruise deals.
Use Discounts Like AAA, or Similar:
Some cruise lines will offer a discount for teachers, military, membership clubs, and others. This is great for 5-10% off, but the deals we want are more like 50%+ off. And, with the cruise hack we’ll show you, you’ll likely still be able to apply the additional discount from those mentioned above!
Go During the Off Season
Sure, with this strategy you’ll consistently find a discounted price. But, there’s a reason it’s called the “off-season.” It’s not the optimal time to cruise to that destination. During “the season,” many of us have vacation days and the weather is ideal for our desired cruise. When cruises are cheapest, there’s typically a reason (like Hurricane Season)!
Book Your Next Cruise While on a Cruise
Often cruise lines will try to entice you to purchase your next sailing while onboard. The reason that we disagree, is that you can’t possibly have enough information at that point. You’re probably all excited and in the spending mood. You may have just come from the Lido Bar. You’re having such a great time that you slap down to plastic for another round. It should be obvious why this isn’t the best way to find a cheap cruise!
