My guest tonight is David Kirkland, author of IntelligentCruiser
Cruises are one of the most enjoyable and economical vacations you can have — if you know the secrets to keeping the money in your pocket. The economy has affected everyone and cruise lines are no exception. They work hard to provide you with an amazing experience but they also have to maximize revenue. Cruise fare is 30% lower than a comparable land-based vacation, but that is only the tip of the iceberg. Excursions, casinos, shopping, art auctions, and bar tabs can quickly add up and more than one cruiser has ended their trip with a bad case of sticker shock.
Our goal at CruiseDork.com is to help you have a most unforgettable time on your cruise and helping you keep the costs under control will only add to your enjoyment. That’s why we sought out industry expert and author David Kirkland.
David spent 10 years aboard cruise ships as a senior officer and now spends his time providing insider knowledge and tips to help you save the most money possible on your cruise vacation. David will let us in on some secrets of the cruise industry and provide valuable tips on saving money on your next cruise.
- Who should you absolutely get to know once you board (hint it is NOT the captain)
- Little charges that add up to BIG BUCKS
- How to get “unadvertised” discounts
…and much, much more.
Settle back with a nice beverage to get in that cruisin’ mood, graba pen and paper, and have a listen as David gives us some invaluable information on making our next cruise the best it can be.
