How I Booked A Cruise Through Expedia


Since, I’m a super saving kind of gal, one of my favorite ways to save on booking a cruise, hotel, or flight is through Expedia.

(I am not an Expedia affiliate, this is my personal review, and all opinions are my own)  🙂

This mega search engine allows me to be my own travel agent, and I have the ability to find everything I need such as flights, hotels, cars and super saving perks for booking through them.

I have friends and family who ask me all the time how I book my cruises, and I thought that I would share some screen shots of how I booked my Carnival cruise through Expedia.

Expedia Search Engine





Expedia has all the search filters you could possibly need to get you where you need to go.

When you click on Bundle and Save, your prices go down by booking your flight, hotel, and car at once.

Play with the filters, and see what you come up with.

You would be surprised at the additional saving you will find….meaning perks!  Gosh, I love that word.  LOL

Now on to my upcoming cruise to the Bahamas!


Cruise Search



I like to start my search by following the suggestions above, destination and date.

I hit that yellow button, and see what adventures awaits me.



Notice, the $414 price, (this doesn’t include tax and port fees) for a 5 night Bermuda cruise from NY.

This itinerary has an exclusive offer of up to $1000 on board credit.  I’ve gotten $50-$75 on board credit for cruise packages totaling $1500 – $2500.

Trust me when your cruising every little bit of credit helps.

Another super saving tip, is the sooner you book the better the savings.

Early saver prices are the way to go, plus you can make little deposits per month or wait to make the final payment in the end.



And finally, it’s worth joining Expedia’s Rewards program.  It’s not much at first, but the more you book through them the better the offers get.

Save those points for each vacation you take.

So, that’s how I’ve booked my last two cruises, and hopefully you will feel confident in booking your own cruise too.

Also, check out my Cruise Ship Life faves on Amazon, and see all the functional accessories, gifts, and more that you can use to enjoy that cruise even more!





Happy New Year Super Savers!


Happy New Year Everyone!  Can you believe that it’s 2020?

Heck, I remember the year 1999, and yes, I partied to that song by Prince.  (Look it up if you don’t know it)

So, what’s your goals this year, I thought that I would share some of mine.  So read on below:

Going On A Cruise


It’s official, I’m going on another Carnival cruise this April to the Bahamas!  It’s my 2nd cruise, and I can’t

wait to experience this once again.

The food, atmosphere, and Carnival employees from the last one was awesome.  In fact, we still keep in

touch with our steward.


Getting Healthier


I know, we all say this every year, but I’m 51 years old, and it’s must for me.

Whether it’s getting new fitness equipment, gym shoes, or healthy life style products, I’m in and always

willing to share my opinions.

My favorite recumbent bike that I own and share with everyone is below.


Sharing Ways To Save


When I started this blog, it was out of necessity that I started to share ways to save with others who were

struggling financially.

I still try my best to share relevant, fun, and yes techie ways to save.

We have come along way with online shopping desktop and mobile cash back apps such as:



Fetch Rewards

Top Cash Back


This is a screenshot of my Ibotta account, and I welcome you to join my team and start getting some cash back too!




I also believe in DIY projects, such as gardening, home improvement, crafting and more and would love for you to join me

So, How Did My First Cruise Go You Say?

Cruise Life


My hubby and I just went on our first Carnival cruise, and of course, when we came back, everyone was asking how it went.

All I have to say, is that I’m hooked, lined, and sinkered and the cruise life is for me.

But, there are a few things that I would have done differently, and here’s why.

Super Saving Tip:  By the way, I saved and got cash back by booking my cruise through, RAKUTEN, formerly EBATES!


Yeppers!  This gal saved some moolah, and booked her cruise through Rakuten, and now I have some cash back to use for the holidays

Luggage Woes



One, of the first things that I noticed is that we needed to buy a new set of luggage that is light and roller friendly.

Our old-fashioned luggage wasn’t going to cut it, and my poor guy’s face went 10 shades of red by the time we got on the boat.  Oops…

So, the next time we go, I’m getting a 3 piece luggage set like this, of course I’m loving the color.


3 Piece American Tourister Luggage Set



This above American Tourister 3 piece set, reminds me of papa, mama, and baby bear luggage, and it’s perfect for us two.

The little carry on bag has just enough room for swim suits, sunscreen, and glasses to put on just in case your room isn’t ready.

Which brings me to the larger suitcases….read on.


Passports, Tickets, and ID’s


I am so glad that my hubby and I have such a great sense of humor, and the cruise ship employees too.  LOL

I felt like we kept losing our passports, tickets, and ID’s at every checkpoint.

I’m sure that some of it was the excitement of getting on that ship, but we will defiantly be more organized with the help of a family passport holder like the one below:


Travel Wallet With RFID Blocking Passport Holder

Not Bring So Many Clothes


I basically wore my swim suit and coverup the entire trip.

So, the next time I go, I will only bring a few outfits, and save the rest of the room in my luggage for souvenirs and treasures I find to bring back home.

The only good thing that I already had was this hanging travel bag  which fit perfectly in our tiny little bathroom.


Hanging Toiletry Bag

Towel Clips


Holy Moly, it can get really windy when you’re laying out in the sun on the deck.

I noticed that others had these really neat towel clips to keep their towels, and hats from flying off the deck.




Sun Hat


The warm sun on my face, the glistening waves, and wind on my skin is very fantastic, until my flashy fashionable sun hat kept flying off my head.

Next time this gal is going to combine comfort with functionality, and get this UV sun hat with pony tail opening.



Sun Hat With UV Protection



I’m sure as I investigate other travel blogger or cruise ship websites, I will find more cruising tips to try, but I have to tell this was one of the best times of my life.

I kept thinking in the middle of that ocean, how blessed and beautiful it is to live in a world so full of chaos.

It was wonderful just to collect my thoughts, and reflect and I can’t wait to go again.

Thanks for stopping by, and please feel free to tell me about your cruise adventure and why below in the comments.  Bon Voyage super mates.
