Sailing on a cruise ship is considered luxurious and prestigious by a lot of people. Therefore, it’s not a sin if you only want to try it at least once in your life as long as you’re not wasting too much money. Ships are usually bigger than Yachts so it can carry a lot of people at once when it sails on the sea.
However, if you wish to save your budget for sailing on a cruise ship, here are the tips for you:
Book tickets early at the promo price
Like when booking air transport tickets, reservations for early cruise ships can also be more economical. Don’t choose a time during the holiday season, especially at the height of summer holidays in June and July.
If you buy a cruise ticket at a travel agent, make sure there is a promo price. Make sure the promo package is purchased with the desired room type and destination. Travel agents will show you several types of cruises, the length of time the ship sails, the destination, and the facilities offered as options.
Select facilities that are in accordance with the budget
Dining and entertainment facilities on cruise ships are not always one package. This means that there are several facilities that are freely selected or not. Like spas, salons and special dinners offered outside the free package. If you don’t need such luxury facilities, don’t order.
Avoid shopping for goods in stores on the boat.
The price of daily necessities sold on cruise ships is certainly more expensive than the normal price. Therefore, make sure to bring all the items you need from home or buy in the mini-market before boarding the ship. Instead, start recording a list of items that need to be taken several days before leaving. Don’t pack it suddenly so that no one is left behind, and so you don’t have to buy it on the boat. Bring your own snacks and favorite drinks.
