Enjoy a Discount Cruise for Your Honeymoon

by Shannon Kietzman, writer for Your Wedding

Discount cruises can help keep your honeymoon within budget while still creating long-lasting memories. With cruises being such a magnificent way to spend time with the one you love, it makes perfect sense to take advantage of discount cruise offers.

Obtaining Discount Cruise Packages

Discount cruises can be obtained by implementing a few tricks. First of all, book your honeymoon cruise as soon as possible. Doing so will ensure that you get the best cabin and it will also cut the costs of your cruise ticket. Usually, you can book your cruise up to 18 months in advance. Since most couples take over a year to plan their wedding, you should be able to determine the dates of your honeymoon cruise well in advance and purchase your cruise tickets accordingly.

Some cruise lines will even give you an additional discount if you pay for the cruise ticket in full at the time of booking. The reason for these great deals is that it makes it easier for the cruise line to budget for the cruise. Therefore, they are willing to lose a little money for the added convenience. Of course, purchasing discount cruise tickets also provides you with a better selection of cabins, considering the best ones book up early.

Loyalty to a specific cruise line will also help in obtaining discount cruise tickets. Most cruise lines reward loyal customers with preferred pricing, free upgrades, and additional amenities. Celebrity Cruise Lines, for example, offers the Captain’s Club while Holland America Cruise Lines has the Mariner Club.

Alternatives - Repositioning Cruises

There are also a few ways to enjoy a discount cruise that many people do not know about. For example, a repositioning cruise is an excellent way to get a discount and to also enjoy a unique cruise. These cruises typically take place during the spring or fall – perfect timing for a honeymoon cruise! Repositioning cruises are offered when the cruise line is moving a ship from one part of the world to a different area. A ship in the Mediterranean, for example, may need to be moved to the Caribbean for seasonal changes. The trip from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean is a repositioning cruise.

Repositioning discount cruises can be up to 40% less costly than a standard cruise. In addition, they generally stop at unusual and unique ports, offer more time at sea, and can last longer than a standard cruise.

Discount cruises come in a variety of forms. If you research your honeymoon cruise thoroughly, book in advance, and remain loyal to one cruise line, you will be certain to have a great time on a low budget.
