HOW TO GET THE BEST CRUISE DEALS + SEASON OF SAVINGS
November 7, 2016
Everyone likes getting the best of cruise deals, including west coasters. Here are some ways to get the best cruise deal on your next cruise, plus one special offer going on right now that you don’t want to miss.
Book a Cruise That Departs Close to Home
There are numerous cruises that depart from west coast USA ports, which you can read more about here. Choose one of these cruises and you’ll automatically be getting a better deal than non-west coasters because you won’t have to pay for airfare, or your airfare will likely be quite inexpensive if it’s just an hour flight to get to your embarkation port (such as flying from LAX to Seattle for an Alaska cruise, or San Francisco to San Diego for a Panama Canal cruise).
Take Advantage of Flights by Celebrity
If you are flying far for your cruise, make sure to look into Flights by Celebrity program when booking. Not only can Flights by Celebrity save you money off the total price of your vacation, but it also gives you peace of mind since you’ll be assisted to get on other flights if yours is delayed for any reason — this helps ensure you get to your ship on time.
Talk to Your Local Travel Agent
A travel agent will know about special regional offers going on for the cruise on which you want to sail away. They also may be able to get you access to bonus amenities you otherwise wouldn’t know about.
Book a Last-Minute Cruise
Last-minute cruise deals can sometimes be found depending on the itinerary and exactly how last-minute it is (don’t wait until two days before a cruise departs and expect to get on one).
However, there are benefits to planning ahead if you know there’s a particular cruise you want to go on. These benefits often include better choice of stateroom, better airfare (particularly true for west coasters who want to fly to Europe for a Mediterranean or Baltic cruise), and more time to plan out your activities to do in port and on the ship. Plus, one more reason to book ahead for that cruise you’ve been eyeing right now is the…
