Best Cruise Deals

LONDON, March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Cruises have become increasingly popular over the last few years as more and more holidaymakers look for alternatives to conventional trips abroad.  

But it's not just finding the best value cruise deal to beat other holiday prices that is pushing passengers towards the high seas - the entire cruise experience is enticing people from all parts of the world. With stunning ports of call, exquisite buffet tables, exceptional service and the ease of having a number of recreational facilities onboard makes the life of a cruise passenger very enjoyable. But how do you know if you're getting the very best Cruise deal?

First time cruisers might be in awe of the almost endless possibilities presented by cruise holidays, so Thomas Cook has put together some tips for you to take 'on board'.

Do some research!

Although there are a number of ways to land a top cruise, it is advisable to research your options thoroughly to make sure you know exactly what deals you could get and what is included in them.

Get a feel for Cruise Line prices and standards to see which ones are within your budget. Once you are armed with this information you can begin searching for the best quotes by investigating what deals are around.

Find the best route

One big incentive for cruise passengers is the outstanding variety of destinations available and cruises are now becoming a popular annual holiday destination for couples and families.

 You can find cruises to almost anywhere in the world, from 14-day trips to the Caribbean to short mini cruises in nearby Europe - there is bound to be a perfect cruise for you.

Thomas Cook, the UK's largest independent cruise retailer, has revealed that the most popular cruise destinations include Barcelona and Venice from the Mediterranean, and San Juan and St Philipsburg from the Caribbean.
