Take A Short Cruise

Why would anyone take a short cruise unless they do not have the money or do not have the time? A cruise should be long enough for you to get to experience all the ship has to offer and to relax and enjoy the whole vibe of cruising. If you are a first-timer, try for a cruise that is at least a week. Three to four days is too short.

Pre-Cruise Prices

Many cruise lines want individuals to make reservations for dining and spa treatments, saying that you will get reduced costs. But, if you wait until port days, you will probably still get the same deals. Usually, people are out and about doing excursions, and cruise ships need to fill slots by lowering prices.

Hurricane Season: No Need To Fret

You certainly do need to know when hurricane season is. Fares are the cheapest during the season of hurricanes. So, expect June to November to be the most inexpensive. But, you will not have cruise lines taking risks. If there is bad weather, you will get reimbursed or rescheduled.

Get An International Calling Plan

You will not need this. You can email and call, taking advantage of the WiFi onboard. Unless you need to make many calls back home, this is a waste of your hard-earned money.
