But these can be more expensive than your actual ticket. Some of us people do have fun just sitting in the sun, eating, reading, doing yoga and using the free amenities offered on a ship. To each their own. A sneaky trick to get more booze on board. You are allowed a case of water. Carefully break up the case and pull out the interior bottles. Pour out the water and fill with colorless booze vodka? Put the pack back together.
No one checks the bottles to see if they are sealed and even if they do, they will only look at the exterior ones. I think you gotta be an alcoholic to use this trick though….. Not always Smaller is cheaper what you have to look its not the actual size is the type or class or whatever the company name the different kind of ships. Some great tips Matt. I have been thinking of a Caribbean cruise for a while now on the recommendation of a friend.
I will definitely be keeping your tips in mind when it comes time to book. We love cruises too, Matt! Then a friend convinced me to just try it…..
We have employed most of the tips you have listed, especially pre-cruise research for port trips. But I do agree with one comentor about enjoying the experience. We will wait for fall to book a return cruise very exciting!! Travelzoo is another site to find cheap cruises and Vacations To Go was our go-to site for our previous cruises. Three days of basically transporting yourself on a floating spa. And cheaper than any flight.

I found it on VacationsToGo — great site! Great Article! I read somewhere that cruise companies basically break even when they have an almost full boat, so they really make all of their money off of excursions, drinks and all the non-free add-ons. We took a cruise several years ago and spent almost nothing on board, went on two excursions, and honestly came out really happy with the cruising experience. We did plan one day where we found a taxi driver to take us to a beach and we called him to pick us up a few hours later.
Nice post Matt. I totally agree that cruises are relaxing and not really traveling. However, you made me rethink cruises as a way to actually just RELAX and not worry about what mountain to climb, what crazy beach I need to go to, and how to get to the next city. I can just chill and let the boat take care of everything.
I love cruising! If you like the spa, and I do, most treatments are usually MUCH cheaper during the days you are at port vs the days you are at sea. Everybody is off the ship, so they lower the prices in the spa or have good package deals to entice you to stay on board. I think this is true for most other things on the ship too, they have better deals while they are in port. I firmly say that if you have to budget THIS tightly, you cannot afford to go. And the statement that smaller ships are less expensive is a totally false generalization.
Save up, and purchase the best cabin you can afford for your first cruise. Plus, find a travel agent you trust and is willing to work with you. If you are young and looking for night life, you will find Holland America a snooze fest. Are these fares per person or per cabin? Are there websites where people can get together to share a double room on a ship?

Thanks for the great post. This is perfect timing for me, as I may have to leave North America this summer and will be heading to Europe. I can travel cheap, and would certainly be washing my own clothes and only drinking water. However, I will have to eat at some point. How possible is it to eat really cheap while on the cruise? If possible, I would just take on a huge box of oatmeal and supplement with fruit and veg where possible.

If this is the case, it will be cheaper to fly. Food is free on cruises! I ate very well on my cruise!
Also, cabin prices can fluctuate significantly from day to day. And back up the next day, alas.

Who knows! Great post Matt! Wish I would have found this a couple of weeks ago! I just returned from the sister ship of the Oasis —- the Allure of the Seas with the Western Caribbean cruise. But I did save a bundle on booze!
I found someone on ebay selling new Nexus bottles. Matt, we used almost all your advise in this article and saved a ton of money. Only a few differences were, we bought good boxed wine and took it out of the box and folded them it our cloths, then when we would stop at ports we bought more wine and put it in our travel water container then walked right on the ship with no questions.
