Discount Cruises Ireland


1. First of all you need to decide how much money you want to spend on the trip.


Most of our cruises include all meals as part of their price as standard. Some of our cheap cruises even include local alcoholic drinks, others still include all alcoholic drinks at no additional cost! Some holiday cruises include excursions at the destination ports, where others don't. Understanding what is included, and what is not included will help you decide on your budget. This is both for how much you will be willing to spend on the cruise holiday itself, and also how much spending money you will want to bring on your cruise vacation.
Most cruises holidays do not include your flight and transfer to the cruise ship from the airport - however look for a fully bonded and insured travel agent and ensure that your cruise is packaged up with suitable flights, transfers and any hotel accommodation.

2. You need to decide how much freedom you want in your cruise schedule.


This will depend on the type of cruise ship that you decide to travel on. Sometimes the schedule is very structured with set times for meals, port visits and other events. At the same time, there are ships which only have fixed meal times and a much looser, more ad-hoc attitude toward scheduling. If you are not necessarily looking for a specifically cheap cruise journey, you may well be able to choose options where you have a lot more freedom to adhere to your own schedule - forging your own cruise adventure holiday!

3. You should tailor your cruise holiday based on your own interests.


The good news is that there are many special cruise packages which focus on a specific interest such as water parks, golf, swimming, gambling, diving and even museums. You may want to check on those before making a final decision about your preferred cruise holiday. Cruise holidays tend to be very social experiences. A cruise vacation can also be a great opportunity to meet other people with the same interests as yourself.

Cruising can be a great option for you whether you are planning to travel with your family, friends or simply by yourself. There is are bargain cruise journeys to suit all tastes.
