If you’re after a cruise this year but you’re on a strict financial allowance, fear not. There are plenty of cruise deals and offers available to suit every holiday budget, however small it may be.
Cruises have long been a popular way to take a break and see the world, but in recent years the industry has upped the ante by going after the younger generation and appealing to those with more limited holiday funds. Take Royal Caribbean for instance. This relatively new cruise company burst onto the scene with innovative ideas and a range of spectacular liners that caught the attention of families and younger travellers.
Featuring unlikely onboard activities such as rock climbing and surfing along with the standard of cuisine and service that any five-star hotel would be proud of, this liner is certainly pushing the limits and the doors are now open for many other tour operators to follow suit, keen to catch new customers that might otherwise not have considered a cruise holiday.
As a result, new itineraries are on offer to suit first timers and prices are coming down. So when it comes to finding cheap cruises 2012 is certainly the right time to book. Search online to find a range of low-cost options from 2-night taster cruises to such gems as Paris and Brussels, to last-minute bookings and upgrade discounts.
Like any package holiday, cruises usually come down in price the closer you get to departure – so shop around and check those itineraries leaving within the next few weeks to bag a real bargain. Or to get a better choice on your range of destinations, you can also book early to benefit from new season discounts along with the chance to pay your holiday off in instalments.
Cruise holidays are all about taking it easy in luxury surroundings, so give it a go and book yourself a treat you won’t forget.
