Posted by Ash K on Thursday, January 26, 2012 0

Ever dreamed about walking along the sandy beaches of the Caribbean? Or seeing the fjords of Scandinavia? Or perhaps you would like to experience the historic ports of the Mediterranean? And if you are looking to come back from your vacation rested, instead of feeling the need for another one, then a cruise vacation is for you. And you can afford it too! There are offers available for every type of cruise, to every destination.

Entertainment On Board and at Port

Entertainment on board cruise ships varies depending on the line and the company. However you can expect to find:

-Swimming pools
-Day spas
-Kids clubs
-Restaurants, bars and lounges

Plus, you are not on board all the time, you can take any of the day excursions planned at any port of call or organize your own for a personal experience. You can enjoy snorkeling or hiking. Or if you prefer, stop off to see the Acropolis in Athens. The choice is yours. With all of this included, you would be forgiven for thinking this will burst your budget, but in fact, cheap cruises are easy to find .

Getting a Great Deal on a Cruise

If you are considering a cruise holiday, start looking at the deals that available. There are many great deals online or you can consult a travel agent. If you really want to take advantage of the best cruise deals, here are some tips to keeping you on budget while you relax.

- Before you ask for vacation time, have a look at what is available and when for the destination you would like to visit. Off-season prices are less expensive.

- Once a cruise is scheduled, it sails whether the rooms are fully booked or not. Inquire with your agent about likely capacity of certain ships. Liners that don't normally offer deals in advance may put some last-minute discounts on the market if their cabins are not full.

- Once you have chosen the cruise you want to take. Make sure you know what is included. Different companies carry different inclusions. Some agents and companies will offer an on board credit, take it if it is offered as you will use it.

- Set a daily budget either for each person and stick to it. Unless you are a whiz at black jack, don't plan on making any money on the ship. Save the on-board credits for the last day for a special treat.

- Find out what is on offer for the excursions in advance and make sure you plan for the ones you really want.

- Bring what you need instead of shopping on board. Rather spend your money on relaxing at the spa or enjoying one of the best meals you have ever experienced.

-Check the dress code of your cruise liner. Some are still considered quite formal and you may feel out-of-place in your sweat pants. Other liners offer a different sort of atmosphere with a relaxed, casual dress code.
