Dreaming of a cruise? But perhaps you have heard that the price of a cruise is very high. Well, TRAVELPRE presents certain periods (months and seasons) that could allow you to take a cruise with a small budget or at lower prices.
If you consider doing a cruise in Alaska but you don’t want to burst your budget, TRAVELPRE advises you to watch for a cruise in the month of May (the boat just arrived and reposition itself in the area) and in the month of September (The boat is about to leave the area for a warmer area).
For example, for a stay of 7 nights, you can think of paying around $600-$650 US. Of course, it is expected that the temperature will be a little cooler and that the animals or flowers are a little less abundant than in the summer. On the other hand, you will have less than during the summer months and if you decide to go there in September, you will have a chance to see the aurora borealis.
Cruise in the Caribbean, Bahamas or Mexico
If you would like to make a low cruise took in the Caribbean region, Bahamas or Mexico, fall (between Labor Day and Christmas) is the season you need to watch. You might think to find a last minute cruise for 7 nights has as little as $350. The main reasons are the drop in traffic and the hurricane season (August to October in general). Note: If the hurricane season does not scare you, it is still advisable to pay for the cancellation and delay insurance of your cruise.
