Many people enjoy going on cruises. It’s nice to get out to sea, away from day-to-day life and the stress that accompanies it. It can be great to get a breather – especially when that breath is of fresh sea air. It’s interesting to visit various ports of call, too.
So what if you don’t speak Spanish (or whatever the native language is at the port)? Don’t worry – these ports that cruise lines stop at have so many tourists that speaking in just English won’t be a problem. And you can absorb the culture – and buy more souvenirs than you really need – as you relax on your cruise.
But these days, most of us don’t have a lot of extra money, so finding a deal on a Carnival cruise would be really helpful. Where are the deals? Are there any still out there?
Check Online First
When you’re starting to think about taking a cruise, take a look at the Carnival website. Cruise deals will be listed on their site. They will also have a link where you can sign up for a periodic email offering you certain deals on Carnival’s cruises if you purchase them within a specific window. Review the Carnival cruises available – length, ports of call, price – then you’ll know what is a better deal than Carnival’s own cruise web site.
Check also with various travel sites. Sites that can sell you an airline ticket for a good price will also offer discounts on other forms of travel – including cruises.
Compromise For Better Prices
If you are willing to compromise a bit, you might find yourself with a better deal on a Carnival cruise. Take a look at the prices for a smaller room, or an inner room (without a porthole, but how much time do you plan to spend in your room, looking out the window, anyhow?). Also, taking a shorter cruise will be less expensive than a longer one with more ports of call.
If you get a better deal on your Carnival cruise ticket, you will have more money available to spend in other ways – however you would like. Maybe you want to buy a statue in Cabo San Lucas. Or go horseback riding in Ensenada. Or get a deep tissue massage while you’re over the deep blue sea. Whatever your dream, use the money you save on your cruise to enjoy your trip all the more – and make memories that will last a lifetime.
