Cruising can not only be a boatload of fun, but it can also be an affordable vacation option. After all, your ship serves as both a floating hotel and your transportation to any number of destinations. In most cases, three meals a day, snacks and basic drinks like water and tea are included, so you’re left paying only for cruise extras like excursions, alcoholic beverages and gratuities for staff on the ship.
Whether you’re intrigued to try cruising for the first time or you’re a seasoned sailor looking to return to the seas, there are plenty of strategies for saving money when booking a cruise. We spoke with travel experts from across the industry to discover their best tips for paying less for a cruise vacation. If you’re angling for a romantic trip for two or a fun family cruise with the kids, there are ways to make that long-awaited vacation much more manageable.
Le Grande Butler Travel’s Mark Payne was recently quoted in a CNN article written by Holly Johnson which discusses ways to save when booking a cruise. Money saving tips included were being flexible on your dates when and where you want to cruise, booking a cruise which include free “perks”, using a cruise loyalty program (if you have cruised before), paying for a cruise with credit card rewards, and most importantly…using a licensed cruise agent such as Le Grande Butler Agency to assist you in saving time and money!
