My wife and I will be going on our first cruise in 2019. I found a good deal on a balcony cabin on Carnival Valor leaving out of New Orleans. I always thought cruises were massively expensive but in reality they are more affordable than one would think. I was surprised in the cost.
Also I learned that Carnival offers a small down payment at the time of booking the cruise. Then all you have is small monthly payments. By the time your cruise comes up, the trip is all paid for and no worries.
This may become a better way to take a vacation. The only drawback is booking the cruise far in advance but that also makes it affordable as well. I am excited and can not wait until it is time to cruise.
I did add our travel insurance and prepaid tips, and the monthly payment is just $65 a month after a $300 down payment. What do you think about cruising, and what cruise line do you prefer?
