Yes! Here is the complete list as of August 2016. Our website generates cabins for up to four people; so if you are interested in booking a cabin for 5 you will need to call us at 866-964-5482 or email us.

Royal Caribbean may allow a 5th person that is under 2 years old. For more details on their requirements click here.

Are there any cruises on which KIDS CRUISE FOR FREE?

 

Gelato for the kids in ItalyYES! But not many. We’ve listed them all below.

Be sure to contact us if you’re looking for a cruise in which kids cruise for free - as new ships and dates are announced all the time, and often the web site pricing will not reveal the correct kid-free price!

If you’re a military family in Europe you’re in luck, as kids age 11 and under cruise for free on almost all MSC CRUISES in Europe, (when they are the 3rd and 4th person in a cabin)!

Kids ages 12-17 pay a very reduced rate, sometimes as little as $99 each!!

MSC also has the same kids free policy on select sailings in the Caribbean!

Norwegian also has the 3rd/4th passenger free as one of it's Free At Sea incentives on select sailings.

Royal Caribbean currently has a promotion where the 3rd and 4th passenger in the cabin are free on the Empress of the Seas. This only applies to 2016 sailings.

Occasionally Kids are free as the 3rd/4th passenger in Holland's flash fares.

Costa has kids free as a capacity controlled promotion for select cabins on select sailings. Capacity controlled means that once they sell enough cabins, the promotion is over. Move quickly with this one!

For right now - that’s it! No other cruise lines are offering any kids cruise free deals. However, we know you want that. So we’re constantly on the lookout for it and all other great cruise deals and will let you know as soon as we know.


How to get the least expensive cabin on a cruise?

 

Crystal blue in the Grand Cayman islands

Book an inside, ocean view or balcony "guarantee". A "guarantee" simply means the cruise line will assign you a cabin on the day of sailing, and that cabin is guaranteed to be an ocean view or better if you book an ocean view guarantee. 

It will be a balcony or better (a suite) if you book a balcony guarantee. Or an inside or better if you book an inside guarantee.

Don't worry - you are 'guaranteed' to get a cabin in the category you choose: inside, ocean view or balcony. There is no such thing as you arriving at the ship and the cruise line has no cabin for you. Promise!!

A 'guarantee' cabin is often $50 to $100 less per person than booking an assigned cabin. 

Many people want to choose their cabin in order to make sure they'll get a cabin on a certain deck, next to another cabin, or in the mid-section of the ship. 

Thus, the only drawback to getting a guarantee cabin is you may not get a cabin assigned to you that has the most ideal location.

It's your choice: cabin choice or price. Which is more important to you? 

If it's price - book an "guarantee" and roll the dice! 


What's the secret sauce on getting the lowest cruise rates?

 

Yellow Crab in the Caribbean

Some other travel agencies try and fool cruise shoppers into thinking they have prices that are "discounted by 80%". Sorry, but that's a bunch of hooey. 

The fact is, virtually all other travel agencies that you probably know by name (Travelocity, Expedia, Orbitz, VacationsToGo) don't discount any cruise by a single penny! Their prices are always exactly the same as the rate anyone can get directly from the cruise line.

The simple truth is, we offer a discount off the cruise line's lowest rate that comes out of our commission. None of those big boys listed above does that. 

So there it is. Now you know everything there is to know about who's giving out cruise discounts and how they're doing it! 


How we save you money even AFTER your cruise is booked and paid for.

 

Port in Europe

Imagine if your travel agent called you and said, I've been keeping an eye on your cruise. This morning the cruise line lowered the price of your cabin category by $200 per person, and I was able to refare it to that new lower rate. So, I just wanted to let you know that $400 has been refunded to your credit card. That’s all. Have a nice day.”

Or, “I checked on your cruise status today and there was a free-upgrade offer available, so I can get you moved up from deck 6 to deck 10 if you’d like?”

And, “Our agency has qualified for a $50 on-board credit for your cabin. Expect to see a $50 deduction off your bill for on-board expenditures. “

We make phone calls like that on a regular basis, because even after our clients book with us, we STILL are on the lookout for ways they can get more and pay less.

When your final payment becomes due, we check the current rate for your cruise, and if it is less than what you paid, we contact the cruise line and request that they refare your cruise to the new lower rate, upgrade you to a higher category, or provide an on-board credit for the difference. We also welcome you to call us if you find the rate has gone down anytime after you book!


Berthing 5 people in a Cabin for 4 on Royal Caribbean

 

Magnifica S3 SuiteThe S3 Aurea Suites on the Magnifica do hold 5 people. There are only 8 of these cabins on the whole ship!

Royal Caribbean

Royal Caribbean can add an infant, under 24 months, to most cabins for four as long as that cabin has space to accomodate a crib. We have to call to ask.


Are there special discounts just for seniors? YES!

 

Arc de triumph

The cruise lines call them Senior Special promotions and they are good for cabins with a passenger who is 55 years or older!

Click on the links below to see some of the Senior Special rates offered by Carnival now.


Carnival Conquest on 9/24/2017 from Fort Lauderdale

Carnival Fascination on 9/10/2017 from San Juan

Carnival Fascination on 9/17/2017 from San Juan

Carnival Fascination on 9/24/2017 from San Juan

The full list is available on Carnival’s website, here.


Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Norwegian, Costa, Princess, and Holland all have senior discounts on select sailings. If any passenger is over 55 years old, be sure to let us know so that we may look for this discount on your sailing.

Even if no senior rate is offered by the cruise line, our discount still applies!


The TRUTH about the pictures of Sandals and Beaches all-inclusive resorts

We just got back from the newest all-inclusive Sandals resort in the Bahamas, and here’s the scout’s honor truth about it :

the pictures on the website of the water, beach and resort were not retouched.

It really is that beautiful!!

In fact, it may have been the most beautiful beach scenes I’ve ever seen, world over. The colors were so stunning it was almost unbelievable.

sandals

This is the exact beach you'll be on if you stay at the Sandals in Great Exuma in the Bahamas.

To see more pictures of this resort, click here and use the drop down menu to select Sandals Emerald Bay.

The rooms were huge; the bathrooms were gorgeous; the views, amazing; the food, fantastic. The free drinks were "dangerously" good.

That's right - I said FREE drinks. Remember, Sandals and Beaches are luxury ALL-INCLUSIVE resorts, so everything you need to have the best vacation ever is included:

  • large, luxurious suites with balconies and marble bathrooms.
  • gourmet food available around-the-clock at buffets, multiple specialty restaurants, coffee and dessert bars, 24-hour room service, and beach-side cafes
  • premium beer, wine and liquor provided in your mini-bar, at every restaurant, pub and swim up bar on the property
  • beach toys, beach towels, chairs and cabanas
  • kids activities, water slides and water parks
  • evening entertainment, discos
  • scuba diving!
  • gratuities
  • transfers from the airport
