Choose to Cruise

If you’re considering a cruise holiday in the future, it’s worth reviewing how a cruise can get you more holiday for your money. There are many benefits involved in going on a cruise, which can include having the opportunity to see several different places as part of the same trip. You can also take advantage of a wide range of different specialist cruises through companies such as 321Travel.co.uk, as well as look into tailoring your journey to different times of the year.

One of the main benefits of going on a cruise holiday is that everything is included within a bundled price — you can cover your entertainment, food and drink, and board as part of a single payment — with limits on how much you can spend per day on eating and drinking. In this way, the upfront costs of a luxury cruise might actually end up being more cost effective than if you book a normal holiday with different hotels and stops.

When looking at cruises, it’s important to be aware of what kind of holiday you want. Do you want to go on a longer cruise in a particular part of the world, or would you prefer more of a short break or weekend holiday? You should also consider whether you want to go on a cruise that’s targeted at particular age ranges, which might include retired travelers or singles. Cruises are also available that are focused on children and families, so make sure you check for offers before deciding on a holiday.

There are many opportunities to save more money on a cruise than on other holidays. By comparing the market, and by using specialist providers, it’s possible to take advantage of various deals on times of the year and seasons. Look into getting discounts on cabins and entertainment packages, and see whether you can save money by choosing your own itinerary when stopping off at a port during a cruise. One excellent resource is Cruise Critic, the leading cruise reviews and information site that also hosts the world’s largest and liveliest cruise community. Most of the large cruise lines also have their own apps, which are worth downloading once you’ve decided on a particular cruise line.

When on a cruise, you can break down the cost of your trip to work out how much more you’re getting from a provider. This might include looking into all-inclusive prices for families, all-you-can-eat plans, or complete adventure packages and touring options. To keep your on-board spending strictly under control, check out the Cruise Card Control iPhone app. Many cruises now provide Wi-Fi and access to other communications when out on the water, albeit often for a special rate. When on land at a port, TravelSim will have you covered.

The key is to be aware of the opportunities available to get more value for your money when on a cruise holiday. Happy travels!
