If you are looking for more money saving tips for your March cruise, consider the cost of travel getting to your port of departure. If the cruise is cheap but your airfare costs more than the cruise itself, it may not be worth getting the cruise deal. Perhaps there is a port within driving distance that offers a similar great price which would make more financial sense. You will also need to be flexible about where you’ll be traveling to in order to snag a great deal. The good news is that all cruise destinations are beautiful so you won’t need to worry about not getting in your beach time! Last, but not least, make sure you search around for the most affordable cruise options from deal sites, travel agencies, and the direct website of the cruise line. If you book through the cruise line itself or a travel agency you may get some freebies such as dining credits, all-inclusive drink packages, and even reduced rooms!


As a final cruise planning tip,  be aware of whether or not your cruise will require a passport for your travels. If you are looking for a cruise in March but don’t have a passport you may not be able to go this time. However, a copy of your birth certificate may suffice if you’ll be on a closed loop cruise. Check with your cruise line and then check to see if you can quickly order your birth certificate online! So what are you waiting for? Grab your suitcase and tell your boss you’ll be out of the office!
