More on cruisie savings

Another cruise savings recommendation is that when you find a cruise quote that falls into your pricing threshold reserve and deposit the space. Many companies have a price guarantee that if you’ve booked into a qualifying cabin and the price of cabin drops they will apply the lower rate to your sailing.

A word of caution here is that all rates do not apply to this price protection. You have to ask when you’re making your reservation. 

February is “Wave” month! This is a time when cruise lines generally offer their best deals and promotions. Don't wait too long holding out for an additional discount or the ship may sail without you!
