Contrary to popular opinion and despite their luxurious appeal, cruise holidays aren’t the huge expense you might think. Bargain cruises can be found right across the holiday spectrum, meaning you can take in some of the world’s most beautiful sights and enjoy everything that a great cruise has to offer, without breaking the bank.

While the price of some cruise breaks might seem expensive, spare a thought for what you get in return. Not only will you get your own en suite cabin, just like in a hotel, you will also enjoy top quality cuisine on a full board basis with endless snacks in-between, a full range of onboard facilities, nightly entertainment, and of course – the piece de resistance – a different destination to discover virtually every morning.

Cruise holidays generally represent excellent value for money but if you’re still not convinced, you will always find plenty of bargains too. For instance when you cruise Thomas Cook you will find regular deals to help encourage you to book, from special online discounts and free cabin upgrades, to inclusive drinks packages and even onboard spending money.

What’s more like any package holiday, the cost of a cruise can often plummet the closer you get to the departure date. Look out for further discounts on holidays leaving within the next few weeks and be prepared to snap up your seats while they’re still available. It can be a rewarding experience and in most cases, booking a late deal can knock a significant chunk off the original cost of the holiday.

Or if that’s a little too last-minute for you, the best bet is to book well in advance. Be ready to reserve your seats as soon as the brochures hit the shelves and not only will you take advantage of early booking discounts, you should also have the chance to spread the cost of your holiday over a longer period of time.
