Finding the Cheapest Cruise Vacation Packages

Finding the Cheapest Cruise Vacation Packages

Hey, I understand.  In these economic times, most people don’t cruise-shop for the most extravagant cruise, the one that hits the most ports, or the one with the biggest liners. They go for the one that offers good quality at the lowest prices. And no one can blame the public for this. So who offers the best overall prices?

As recently as the early 1990s, Premier Cruise Line offered some of the most reasonable cruise prices available. They’d specialized in purchasing older ocean liners and converting them into cruise ships, primarily around the tropics. Premier began transporting scads of people to Disney World and was raking in money like autumn leaves. Disney even allowed them to bring Mickey and Goofy on board as guests to charm the families. But then, alas, Disney initiated its own cruise line and yanked the cartoon characters. Then, to make things worse for Premier, Carnival, Norwegian Cruise Lines, and Royal Caribbean began a massive building program of new liners. They grew so large that they could undercut almost any discount cruises Premier put out there. The company finally folded in September of 2000.

There’s one small cruise line left and, at the time of this writing, it still offers the lowest priced package, all things considered. It is the Imperial Majesty Line with its two ships: the Regal Empress and the Ocean Breeze. The prices start at $39 per person per day in the lowest category cabin, and the two-day cruise starts at $45 per day. The ships sail primarily to the Bahamas.

A travel expert claimed recently that of the large cruise lines, the least expensive cruises are offered by Carnival, Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL), and Royal Caribbean. Of course, a few lines such as Celebrity and Princess occasionally compete with a lower priced package, and Costa is a property of Carnival.

Another situation in which any large cruise line can offer rock-bottom rates is on repositioning cruises. This means that when a liner must be repositioned to a different part of the world, the trip for vacationers is offered at a huge discount. A repositioning cruise such as a trans-Atlantic voyage can cost as little as $32 per person per day.

But, aside from situations like that, Carnival, NCL, and Royal Caribbean usually offer the lowest prices. The briefer cruises are often on older ships but you get some incredible deals. And don’t imagine that just because a ship is older, it is shabby or inferior. In many cases, passengers are not even aware that their liner has been in service longer than others. Carnival and NCL now offer three-day cruises for $56 per person per day, and you can get a four-night cruise for about $52 per day. If you do a 7-10 day Mexico or Caribbean cruise, your rate will probably be the lowest of all. However, as the economy improves, expect that rates may go up a bit.

I’m not about to try to compare the overall quality of the …

Cheap Spring Break 2010 Packages For College Students

Cheap Spring Break 2010 Packages For College Students

Cheap spring break packages can be found if you know where to look. The internet, magazines, and flyers pinned to bulletin boards around campus are a great place to start. As with most vacations, research is the key to finding the best deals.

The internet is often your best choice when it comes to finding the best spring break trips. Their are many packages out there, so let’s start with the basics.

1) What is my per person price limit? Get together with your friends and agree on a max. per person price you are willing to pay for your spring break vacation. This will eliminate many options right from the start. Don’t forget to factor in spending money while your there. Many students make the mistake of not adding their food allowance and general spending money into the max. price and find that they are broke half way through the trip.

2) Pick a destination. Keep in mind that spring break destinations that are far away typically cost more. It goes back to the old saying “cheaper to walk than drive, cheaper to cruise than fly”. While not always the case, this holds true in most cases. College spring break students in California may find that it’s cheaper to fly to Hawaii instead of the Bahamas, while east coasters typically choose the Caribbean if they want to keep cost down. A happy medium is often a cruise package. For example, students can cruise from Ft. Lauderdale to the Bahamas for a fraction of what it cost to fly to the Bahamas. The bad news is that this does not hold true for west coast students cruising to Hawaii. This is largely due to the fact that the Bahamas not very far off the coast of Florida. California to Hawaii is a much greater distance which means more fuel and in turn higher cost. Depending on the package, it can sometimes be cheaper to fly from California to Florida and take a ship to the Bahamas.

3) Decide on what type of package you want. Does everyone want to drive to a spring break destination, cruise, or fly? Do they want an all-inclusive package that includes airfare/cruise ticket, hotel accommodations, food, drinks, club entry, etc…? Would they prefer a semi-inclusive package that includes only airfare/cruise ticket and hotel accommodations? Most college spring break students prefer an all-inclusive package. They don’t want to worry about how much they will need while on the trip, however, they are typically turned off by the high price of full all-inclusive packages. It’s very important to keep in mind that each person can often spend as much or more if they buy food, drinks, and everything else separately. If your group plans on eating at fancy restaurants and hitting the clubs every night, it may be wiser to pay for everything up front and go with an all-inclusive plan. If everyone has decided to eat at fast food restaurants(not recommended) the whole time then the …
