So you’ve got your sights set on a cruise holiday. You’ve picked out your favourite route, settled on a ship and you’ve even decided what you’ll wear for the formal dinner. There’s just one slight inconvenience – it’s breaking the holiday budget!

If you’re struggling to find a cruise holiday that ticks all the right boxes yet still comes within budget, your best bet would be to search online for some of the cracking cruise deals on offer. How? It’s easy. For starters, don’t go direct to the individual cruise operators’ websites just yet, as you’ll save a lot of time (and probably money) by using a tour operator, such as Thomas Cook.

Thomas Cook doesn’t operate its own cruise ships. Instead, the company offers holidays from all the major cruise operators such as P&O, Royal Caribbean, Princess, Thomson, Fred.Olsen, and many more. This is highly convenient for holidaymakers because it means, just like a comparison website, you can search online across all the major operators and whittle down the results by your most important criteria – be it destination, departure date and of course, price.

Thomas Cook also offers a ‘deal of the day’ page dedicated to the hottest cruise deals in their database. Check it out for yourself here: http://www.thomascook.com/cruise/deals-of-the-day. As you’ll see, this section usually offers last-minute departures as these are often the holidays offering the best deals. But if you’re planning ahead for next year, you can also keep a sharp eye on the regular deal pages of Thomas Cook, or indeed your favourite cruise operator, and watch out for early bird offers.

In fact if you’re happy to wait and book your holiday in advance, this is a useful tactic. Not only can you secure preferential rates by booking early, you will also have longer to pay off the cost of your trip – meaning extra time to save some spending money and the opportunity to pay your holiday in stages, too.

So whatever you’re looking for from your next cruise getaway, make sure you browse the range of special offers before you book. You might just find that perfect holiday with your name on it…
