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 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!
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!
