  • Today, I want to talk about something that you probably already understand, which is the concept of getting what you pay for. We all know the old adage about it “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is” and that extends to cruises as well. The challenge for most people is being able to recognize a true value when it comes to cruises and vacations in general. Naturally, it’s not like gas or milk where we know a good deal when we see it—we buy it every week and it’s all gas or milk is pretty much the same. Today we’ll focus on how you can go about getting a good value out of your next cruise vacation and come away feeling like you got the deal of a lifetime!
