When planning any vacation, we all want to find the very best value possible. This is no different when planning a cruise vacation. Finding and getting cruise discounts is not that difficult. Not all cruise discounts however will give you the best value.
What is important to you in a vacation cruise is not necessarily what is important to me or anyone else. So the discount you get offered may be for a cruise, cruise line, or stateroom that doesnt interest you. Sure, the price is right but if you get full enjoyment, where is the value? If you are flexible or if you simply want to get-away-from-it-all then any discount will be a good one for you.
We have identified six different ways that cruise discounts are offered. One is sure to be right for you.
Early Booking Discounts
This type of discount is available from most cruise lines and for most itineraries. If you book before a certain date, the cruise line offers a special discount price for your vacation. Now these discounts may not be the best prices you can get but by booking early you will most often get the cruise you want, on the cruise ship you desire, and the itinerary of interest, in the stateroom or suite of your choice. All of these items combined can make this type of vacation discount the very best value for your cruise. You may say that if you wait, with the cruise ships being so large these days, you can get exactly what you want. Be forewarned! Cruises do sell out.
