Booking a cruise vacation online is now the primary means by which intrepid vacationers plan and finalize their sojourns. You can directly book with the cruise lines or you may avail of the services of an agent. Here are a few tips for those who have not yet booked a cruise online. We hope this makes the process easy for you to accomplish.
#1: Take your time browsing online
If you have Internet access then you need to set aside time to find out what’s out there. It helps to do your own research first before you finalize your cruise ship vacation. You can use all the available channels provided by the World Wide Web to make sure that you get relevant data. But you need to realize that not every cruise ship service has a website. Some prefer to do it old school, you see.
There are also deals offered by cruise companies that are offered only in the Internet. These deals provide considerable savings to the traveler. There are definitely enough options and adequate number of websites to explore and you may browse through all their exciting offers.
#2: Read the fine print
You may not realize it but you’re probably paying for a lot of extra charges that you are not necessarily aware of. Before you finalize a booking for a cruise that involves hotel accommodation, check whether parking, telephone, water, snacks, and other services require additional fees.
You also need to know whether you’ll be shouldering service charge, energy surcharge as well as certain taxes. In this way, you won’t be surprised at the final bill when you do get it. If you know the details of the bill payments then you will be ready when the time to settle it comes.
#3: Get insurance
Insurance is advantageous for many reasons. First and foremost, you’ll be protected from penalties should you need to cancel your trip. At the least you have some protection given the fact that cruise lines set non-refundable fees. Secondly, insurance provides coverage for lost baggage. And don’t think it’s too unlikely to happen because it could happen to anyone. Thirdly, insurance covers emergency medical needs including medevac. Here’s one more tip we have for you. Get insurance from a third party provider.
#4: Pick a cabin with care
There are so many categories to consider when choosing a cabin. And don’t just rely on one factor (price). Here are the other items on the criteria: location, size, layout and view. One of the most important considerations is whether the room is near high traffic or noisy common areas in the ship.
#5: Avail of packages with hotel accommodation
It is eventually more cost-effective to purchase a cruise package that includes hotel accommodation. It is very convenient to be located near the departure port and stay at a high quality hotel within the city. There’s not need to worry about missing the ship because you needed to travel a long distance. These packages also include hotel to port transfer. Your breakfast on the day of departure is covered as well.
Excited to go on your next cruise? For sure the first one was a blast. And if it is your first time, then you have something really spectacular to look forward to.
