Hi guys, since I've been on 34 cruises so far you could say that I'm addicted like many others here I'm sure.
Once you go cruising and find the fun, relaxation, convienence and value you don't want to vacation any other way.
Getting the best price on a cruise is important to me because that allows us to cruise even more.
I'm glad that I found Cruise Fish. Good job Titus. I'll be using this to help in my research and I will also help promote it to other cruisers.
I just finished a short video to talk about getting the lowest cruise pricing using Cruise Fish and I will go into more depth in more videos. Great tool.
Now if people want to get the absolute lowest price then I highly recommend getting an inCruises account. I did this last year and it is saving me so much money. How it works is you become a member for $100 per month and they give you 200 Cruise Dollars each month in return to use only to book any cruise including port charges and taxes.
You would think that their prices would be higher than other websites but no, many times lower and then being able to use your 2 for 1 Cruise Dollars makes it even better. I booked a Cruise to Alaska for 7 nights and saved $1,400 over Costco.com price.
Cruise Dollars don't expire. The only real restriction is the percentage of your Cruise Dollar balance you can use per cruise. So in your 1st year you can use 60% of your Cruise Dollar balance per cruise, 2nd year 70%, 3rd 80%, 4th 90% and after that 100%. But even in the 1st year you are saving good money. You can pay 100% of the cruise with Cruise Dollars and you would have 40% still in your balance to use on another cruise. Great deal!
So a good example is that you're a member for 10 months you would have 2,000 Cruise Dollars and say you found a great deal with Cruise Fish. You could use 1,200 Cruise Dollars to either pay for it in full using 100% Cruise Dollars with $0 out of pocket or use 1,200 Cruise Dollars to reduce the cost by $1,200 and put the rest on Credit Card. Either way you would still have a balance of 800 Cruise Dollars to use for another cruise.
I put together a website that explains a lot of this at: http://save4cruise.com
Having both services CruiseFish and inCruises is like being in cruisers heaven.
I would love to hear your opinions and answer any questions.
