Example text

However you arrange to buy your cruise, what you basically have in hand at the end is a contract for transportation, lodging, dining, entertainment, housekeeping, and assorted other miscellaneous services that will be provided to you over the course of your vacation. That’s a lot of services, involving a lot of people. It’s complex, and like any complex thing, it pays (and saves) to study up. That’s why it’s important that you read the rest of this chapter. 2 Booking through a Travel Agent The majority of cruise passengers still book through agents.

Virtually all the lines (with the exception of some of the small-ship lines) offer early booking discounts. The numbers and dates may vary a bit, but the formula has been fairly standard: You get about 25% to 30% off and your best choice of ship, cabin, and itinerary if you book by mid-February and 20% off if you book by mid-April. But with such fierce competition, you can sometimes get big discounts even into May, especially if you’re a member of the lines’ past-passenger fraternity. As the season gets underway, last-minute fares starting at less than $100 a day are not uncommon (we’ve even seen them at less than $85 per day).

A nice thing about cruises is that you needn’t worry about dining alone because you’ll be seated with other guests. ) You also needn’t worry much about finding people to talk to because the general atmosphere on nearly all ships is very congenial and allows you to find conversation easily, especially during group activities. Some ships host a party to give singles a chance to get to know one another, and some ships offer social hosts as dance partners. The downside is that you may have to pay for the privilege of traveling solo.
