There was a post a while ago,,how do..people go on 2----? cruises a year....I ache to go again,,,but we have to work,,and save,,do they charge them? Are they retired,,with lots of $$$ Are people just flat wealthy? Do they not eat,,other than when they are onboard? ..Oh,, I have it,,they don't have kids? I guess I will have to surf the web for the best deal for my yearly,,cruise
I think that perhaps a lot of folks work in the travel industry and get good discounts. I am taking two cruises this year. Both tix were at really good prices. It helps that my living expenses are not too high. I live in a condo with a very small mortgage, don't have a lot of bills, only have to pay for myself and the kids are grown and gone. I think the latter is a really important point. When my kids were at home I could not afford to cruise.
I just started cruising, hopefully we'll be able to do 1 cruise a year. I just booked our second. I search around the web a lot. It seems like November or early December is a cheap time to cruise, The hurricane season is over and the holidays are close. Oh also I don't plan on using the plastic card. I can save $150 a month plus use my tax return, to pay for it.
Oh yea the big ingredient the kids are grown up. Still living at home going to school, and working, but they don't cost me much.
I think the people that cruise a lot have more $$ than I do.
I usually do one a year, but have done two in one year, twice. I'm single, have a good job and my living expenses in a mobile home park are not that high. I'm doing early retirement this year (55) so I will probably be lucky to do one a year for awhile until I get my finances situated! Susan will be cruisin in May on the Summit!
