I am always looking for a travel deal. In June 2005, my family went on a 10-day cruise on Celebrity Cruise Lines from Rome to Rome. The cost was a reasonable $4,200 for my family of four. However, I have an even better deal. In November, my family will take a 14-day cruise from Barcelona, Spain, that will end in Ft. Lauderdale. The cost, a reasonable $3,100. The same cruise is currently going for $2,500 per person.
What’s my secret? First, book ahead, way ahead. I booked the November cruise last December. Second, shop around. Be willing to spend some time researching and comparing costs and amenities. I find the best deals on www.cruise.com. Third, be as flexible as possible. The more dates and schedules you have open, the better your chances of finding a bargain that will suit your needs.
Once you have your trip booked, prepare to enjoy a relaxing vacation. Happy cruising.
