Cheap Cruise
Where Do You Find Them?

Where can you find a cheap cruise?

This important question is one of four questions that will provide the big picture understanding about how you can get great discounts.

Look at this list for hints as to where you can find a cheap cruise:

  • Discounts offered in competitive markets
  • Discounts based on time of year (cruising to areas of potential bad weather)
  • Discounts to offset weak sales
  • Discounts based on historical selling patterns
  • Discounts to introduce a new "brand" (or a refurbished ship)
  • Discounts for repositioning cruises

Here are some additional sources:

  • Travel agents/cruise agents/travel planner/trip advisor/?
  • Cruise brokers
  • Organizers of group cruises (especially when organizers look at various scenarios, such as those mentioned above)
  • Internet websites (especially those websites that provide direct telephone support by a knowledgeable travel agent)

Also, take a look at:

  • Very long cruises, 90-day and 100-day sailings, where inside cabins (considered inferior) are extremely cheap. You can currently find these inside cabins with cruise brokers for as little as $150 per person per day. Outside cabins on the same cruise sell for as much as $700 to $1000 per person per day.

However, a quick calculation shows you the problem with this type of cheap cruise.

Even though the typical cost of a very long cruise is between $60,000 and $100,000 per person, the "cheap" cruise (inside) cabin still cost around $15,000 per person (a great, great bargain but a problem for many cruisers).

Another Option:

  • Add the example of the author of this site, who works from home. Cruise travel as a business expense is tax deductible.

Even if you are not a travel professional this web page will show you how you can still build a business helping people with their travel plans.

This web page shows you how to use your knowledge of any interest, passion, or hobby to build a website that can finance your travels.

  • You do not have to build a website. You also can establish yourself in business as a travel writer. This type of writing is not difficult. It is not the same as writing a book.

As a travel writer you can "write-off" your travel expenses. Of course, it is always a good idea to seek the advice of a tax or legal professional when setting up your business.

  • Also, you do not have to build a website if you become a guest lecturer aboard cruise ships. You can exchange your knowledge of any hobby, passion, or interest for free cruise travel. (Cruise free as a speaker)
