Cheap and luxury don’t have to be opposites. In fact, you can get some of the world’s most luxe experiences at a fraction of the cost. All you have to do is book a cruise in 2022.
The cruise industry took a serious hit from the COVID-19 pandemic, and prices are still dropping in 2022. From the Caribbean to the cold waters of Alaska, fares for a top-notch voyage are steadily sinking making it easier than ever to cruise on a budget. If you want to travel like a rich person without paying like a rich person cruises may be your best bet.
Welcome aboard! We’re going to walk you through how you can take the cheapest luxury vacation of your life, and why you should do it now.
What Happened to the Cruise Industry?
Historically, the cruise industry has always been a cheaper way to vacation. You can find cruise fares at a much lower cost than many land resorts. But the over-night say isn’t the only thing that makes cruises a more affordable vacation, it’s because cruise vacays are all inclusive. When you buy a ticket to stay, you’re buying unlimited food to go along with it, which significantly cuts costs of your vacation.
While cruises have always been a more affordable way to vacation, they’re getting even cheaper. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, less and less people are booking trips, even now.
The reason for the drop in price is simple, cruises don’t want to voyage with empty rooms. The closer we get to an empty voyage; the cheaper tickets will become. That’s how you can pay bottom of the barrel prices to board a top-of-the-line ship at any time of year.
Getting the Best Deal
To put it simply, the later you book, the better discount you can get. Of course, that doesn’t come without extra hassle. Most of us can’t pack up and leave for the Caribbean at the drop of a hat, we need to arrange for a vacation for months in advance. Because of the current state of the cruise industry, you can get reduced rates months in advance, you just might not get the best deal possible of you book early.
All and all, cruises are inexpensive right now, no matter when you book.
Book without Guilt
Speaking of booking months in advance, what if something comes up? Recent history has shown us that unthinkable outside circumstances can affect our plans. Lucky for us, the cruise industry understands that too.
When you book early, you can cancel your cruise before the final payment deadline with no penalty. If you test positive for COVID-19 within ten days of your cruise, you and your traveling party will get a 100% refund on your fare.
Luxury and Experience
I know what you’re thinking: if cruises are so affordable, they must not be nice. You couldn’t be more wrong. You can enjoy the most beautiful and exciting vacation experience on your voyage.
Eat unlimited chef-crafted meals, watch show stopping performances, and travel to the world’s most beautiful destinations on your cruise. Just because it’s affordable doesn’t mean it’s not incredible.
