Cruise Critic shares tips for minimizing cost and maximizing value
PENNINGTON, N.J., July 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- For travelers looking to book a significant deal on a cruise vacation, timing is everything. Cruise Critic, the world's largest cruise website, shares five occasions when booking a cruise can yield big savings – including peak hurricane season, running from mid-August to mid-October.
"A great deal for a cruise fare can range anywhere from $50 to $100 per person, per day – sometimes even less," explains Carolyn Spencer Brown, editor-in-chief of Cruise Critic. "The good news is, there are a number of times each year when these deals are prevalent, making it relatively easy to secure good fares if you know when to book. Just be sure when searching for a bargain that you're searching for value over just price alone. Find a ship that not only fits your budget, but matches your travel style, too."
In addition to the scheduled occasions listed above, signing up for notifications from cruise lines, agents and industry sites can also highlight time-sensitive promotions offered throughout the year. Cruise Critic's Price Drop tool allows cruisers to search for deals by specific criteria, including cruise line, destination and departure port. Cruisers can also sign up for weekly Price Drop emails to be notified of sales that meet chosen criteria.
