|Our recommendation to save the most money is by booking early or at the last minute. Confused? |
Well yes and while you may not receive the best price with booking early, many cruise lines will reward you with free cabin upgrades or other onboard amenities like ship board credit vouchers. As an incentive for calling and ordering a brochure, a line may include a coupon for a percentage off, upgrade or onboard credit.
The other time to receive savings on cruises is the very, and I mean very, last moment. If a cruise is far from capacity, phones ring all over at agencies and brokerages and an extensive effort is made to fill the cabins.
Cruises are one of the best vacation values and can truly be a way of getting away from the Madding crowd. Prices range from about $100 per person per day to several thousand for the Royal Suite Cabin on Cunard Lines Queen family of ships.
