Default How i saved a packet on a Barcelona cruise

This post is for U.K cruisers to let you know how to save money if you are going to cruise from a Spanish Departure Port.

I have done this twice when i lived in the U.K, I now live in Spain but still compare the prices with the U.K agents.

How do you do it?
Easy book it with a Spanish Agent, cruises are often priced the same in pounds and Euros; for example let’s say a Barcelona cruise in the U.K is priced at 1000 pounds the same cruise in Spain would be 1000 Euros at today's rate that´s 790 pounds sterling, That´s a saving of 210 pounds, two passengers is a saving of 420 pounds and a family of four with the kids at half price will save you 630 pounds.

Next avoid the Fly Cruise package options and book your own flights with easy jet or another low cost airline.

I must say at certain times of the year the savings can be much greater.

for more info and what companies to use read my blog at www.workingclasscruisehero.com

Keep in mind that you cannot do this with many cruise lines as they have policies that do not allow residents of one country from buying cruises sold by agents in another country. However, there are some exceptions.

For example, with several cruise lines U.S. agents cannot sell cruises to those outside of the USA and Canada. Conversely, an agent in Spain or the UK cannot sell a cruise to a U.S. resident.

So it's best to double check with the specific cruise line to insure this is permissible before doing it as it could end up costing you in the end and you don't wanted any unwanted surprises.
