Many people swear by the constant availability of delicious food, breathtaking views, nonstop entertainment and plush accommodations. Not to mention activities for both children and adults, plus free childcare. Here are some tips for getting the most cruise for the least cash:

  • Find a deal. The cruise industry is in need of passengers right now, which means there are a huge number of deals out there. Browse the sites below to find the best ones available now.
  • Choose a veteran line. When new cruise lines debut, they tend to have higher rates because of a higher demand for tickets. Save yourself some money by going with the tried and true.
  • Research the destinations. Cruise lines generally don't provide much information about port cities. To get the most out of your time in ports and to avoid expensive meals, decide on budget-friendly eats and activities by doing your pre-trip research.
  • Don't double tip. Most cruise lines include tips in their fees, so make sure you're not double tipping while on board.
