    For those wanting the lowest price possible

    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.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuPdHoHwyZQ

    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.

    Good Information BUT it seems as if Cruise Fish is not working as it has in the past for some reason.  You might check the latest threads tab and form your own conlusions.

    I understand.  I was skeptical too at first but after seeing others go on their cruises, talking with the CEO month after month and then actually booking a cruise through them using 100% Cruise Dollars with $0 out of pocket did I then start telling people.

    Maybe it is how I'm presenting the information they offer on my site?  As an avid cruiser and one that loves to save money and being a member since last May I feel everyone should be doing this.

    The graphic below shows my invoice and how I used 100% cruise dollars and saved $1,411 over Costco Travel for the same cabin.

    For more about me and my story see: http://mikepotterhere.com

    Or is that the part you don't believe?

    Re: For those wanting the lowest price possible

    That was somewhat a good review though the information is old.  These scam review sites are created to capture traffic from people doing google searches and making money from ads or other affiliate offerings.  At least this site was honest in saying that inCruises passes the test and is not a pyramid scheme.  Since the site owner is in control of comments they will many times remove or not approve anything that counters their opinion.

    As far as that review goes inCruises has been on the upward trend since July last year.  Also just this April they changed the amount of Cruise Dollars you can use and now you can also book any cruise.

    In any new business it is going to take time to get traction.  It takes testimonies from people and as more and more people join and save like I have been then people will feel more inclined to join.  We are talking about a membership that is only $100 per month and you can start using 60% of the 200 per month Cruise Dollars to book a cruise after 30 days.

    I'm a firm believer of diversifing.  For me this is a great way to do it and includes so many of my passions.  I love to cruise, I love to save money, I love helping others save money, I also like building businesses that make money over time.

    Just because it might be a new business model doesn't mean it is a scam.  Look at Uber and Lyft. They have really changed the taxi industry and allowed everyday people the ability to earn a good income.  Those traditional taxi drivers and companies are upset but hey technology has made it possible.  Same for AirBNB.

    I do appreciate your replies though because it helps me figure out what I need to do to market this and help others.  Of course there will be those that refuse to consider anything different.

    Dude, you should take up an honest profession. How about Timeshare sales in Mexico.

    Ok, so now I see in reading your introduction.  You were burned by a Timeshare.  I agree those are very bad and can be very costly.  I'm glad you found cruising.  So much better :)

    Pyramid selling comes to mind.  The loss accrues to those on the bottom of the pyramid.  Pass also.

    Hmmm a pyramid?  This is a membership model just like a gym membership.  You could say that there is no way a gym could stay open for only $20 per month.  Look at all the benefit you get for $20 and all the expenses they have.  Well it is a membership model and it works.

    inCruises is doing basically the same thing.  The membership is $100 per month and you get 200 Cruise Dollars to book a cruise with them.  Actually very smart.  They make a good commission plus they invest their money to increase it just like any other membership club.  Plus you have those that don't use it.  You certainly don't have people all booking at the same time.

    As a member you do not need to refer anyone to get the 2 for 1 offer.  So certainly not a pyramid.

    Does my website make it sound like a pyramid scheme?  Does the video that the CEO give sound like a pyramid?

    Here is my site again: http://save4cruise.com

    Since I've been a member myself since May and think it is the greatest thing to happen in the cruising industry to allow anyone to afford to cruise by saving monthly and getting double the value is great.

    I do appreciate the feedback because I am helping promote it and I want to help as many people as I can.

    Re: For those wanting the lowest price possible

    Adolfo, I see you're a Cruise Specialist working your business model.  Except your website seems to be down.  Are you still in business?  You might want to check that out.  I couldn't reach it.  Anyway...

    inCruises started over a year ago and since then there has not been 1 complaint by a member saying they were scammed or anything negative about the company or the CEO.

    The CEO is a very good man I've come to know this past year.  Him and his team are out trying to help people and they even support a few charities like the Make A Wish foundation with 10% of the companies resources.

    The membership model has been around for a very long time.  Now of course with anything there is a chance of it not succeeding.

    There is also a very good chance our US dollar will collapse on itself because to be honest it is truely one of the biggest ponzi schemes out there.  Watch this when you have time about our money system.  Very well done and interesting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFDe5kUUyT0

    This is one reason why I think it is important for people to diversify.  People should have different forms of "money" like gold, stocks, land, crypto and Cruise Dollars.  Also have multiple sources of income too.  Personally this is what we've done.  For sources of income I try to pick companies that are global so that as you build your business it isn't affected by regional issues.  I am also working with one Korean company that is in 8 countries and I have over 2,700 customers from around the world.  They have great home products at great prices.  Of course you might think it is another scheme because it isn't traditional.

    I would really encourage people to start thinking outside the box.  I've done that my whole life and this has allowed me to do some amazing things like live on a sailboat in the Caribbean for a year, live on a 12 acre farm in the middle of Puerto Rico for 4 years and go on 34 cruises seeing the world.  All this time I've had people tell me don't do it... That is dangerous... You'll never succeed at that... 

    There will always be people that live in a crab pot trying to pull others inside with them.  Sorry, a crab pot is not for me.
