my wife and I love to tell you folks how you can get the best deal on a cruise
I'm an independent guy so you can ask me anything you want I'm not affiliated
with anyone and like I said if you catch my live streams you'll get a whole bunch
of information six days a week and you can ask me anything you want about
cruising you have a question about this video just drop a question in the
comment box below I'll be happy to answer it okay let's go to a video here
that I'm putting together right now for how to work the vacations to go dot-com
website alright see you in a minute okay everybody here we go this is the website
that I like to refer to called vacations to go calm they have
fantastic site here you can check this site out in different languages English
of course espanol francais and Portuguese you can look up cruise deals
which is what we're going to do here but you can also look up river cruises
hotels resorts escorted tours and Africa safaris we have two features here I like
to follow one is the 90-day ticker and the show me the deals section and this
is where I'm going to go to get into the site you have to give them your email
address you become a member for free it's no cost to join this site and by
doing so the chairman and CEO Alan Fox will send you probably a couple of
emails a month showing you the latest deals on cruises escorted tours all
kinds of stuff you'll get you'll get information like you can't believe well
let's start here by going to this red tab right here I want to show you show
me the deals and I'll show you how this site works just move my mouse over there
I'll click that right now and here we have find a bargain 31,000 290 cruises
are available to be seen but I've got to narrow that list down to make it
presentable for a page and today what I thought I would do is show you the
series of cruises being that it's March the first 2-day 2018 I thought let's
start right now March 2018 and let's look for cruises right up until the end
of January 2019 that gives us a wide range and on the second box here I'm
going to pick a region if I click this little arrow here I can see all the
regions of the world that I can take a cruise this list is quite extensive it
even includes world cruising transatlantic cruising repositioning
Panama cruises and so on for the sake of this example I'm gonna go to the
Caribbean I'm going to ask for not the eastern southern or western Caribbean
I'm gonna say show me all Caribbean cruises and under the next tab is a
the cruise line is there one cruise line I want to know if if I don't care I can
leave it blank where just says choose a cruise line and they'll show me all of
them but that'll be too many for this example so what I'll do is I'll take
Royal Caribbean cruises in this example right here
I'll leave the ship name blank because I'm quite happy to see every cruise
Royal Caribbean offers in the Caribbean the length of the cruise I'm going to
select in this case a 7-night cruise because that's kind of what I'd be
interested in most likely and as far as where I'm departing from I'm gonna
suggest here if I look at this list I could see different locations around the
world I know that Florida is the big area you would depart from to do a
Caribbean cruise mostly and I could pick Fort Lauderdale right here but if I go
one higher right there Florida any port in Florida I like the variety there this
gives me Miami Port Canaveral Fort Lauderdale Tampa Key West everywhere so
any port in Florida and I don't care where we're going to visit I know we're
gonna return to the same part because weekly cruises generally always return
to the same port so I'm gonna leave these parameters in place March of this
year until January next year Caribbean cruising Royal Caribbean any
ship seven nights leaving Florida any port I'm gonna hit this red button right
now show me the deals this page pops up and it tells me different cruises
available but starting at the top right up here I'm right now defaulting to the
cheapest overall rate but I can specify Ocean View balcony and order the
cheapest suite for pricing I can look at double occupancy which is the default
that this page has or I can ask for single occupancy pricing only this is
showing me all prices in US dollars right now but I can request either
Canadian Australian great British pounds or euros for my pricing if I wish so
those of you who are overseas you can pick one of these for if they're more
convenient for you here is the price per column this is a status bar I can either
click the status bar and they'll tell me the ship is sold out what the this case
it's an oceanview price or if I go to price per night which I kind of prefer
this will show me how much per night the room is or if it's sold out or not
now over here we have the deal number the night how many nights the date of
departure where the departing from where it's coming back the Royal Caribbean
harming the Seas in this case a five star line brochure price is 4,600 the
deal on this Cruise is 21 98 and you can save 52 percent but this one is a
sold-out cruise what I want to know is right over here I want to see pricing
for the balconies so I want the cheapest balcony price and to see the lowest
cheapest price is right now these cruises are listed by the date starting
the March 3rd 4th and so on I want to know what's the cheapest available deal
so if I click this our starting price tab right here I now will see the lowest
priced cruise for a balcony that Royal Caribbean has between January and sorry
March in January 2018 to 2019 in this case for $636 the cruise in question
departs August the 26th for 7 nights from Port Canaveral returning to Port
Canaveral it's on the oasis of the seas five stars regularly priced 2436 on sale
for 636 which is 74 percent off that is $90 a night the lower we go here on this
bar the higher the prices will be for each cruise and you'll note that if I
start the scroll down on this page even if I leave it right at the top there
here's the cheapest price and you'll see how quickly you will not quickly but
they agreed they inch up a couple of bucks here a couple of bucks there and
here are 710 700 to 750 harmony of the Seas is showing here I go
a bit further down here you'll note that we could go and
serve a room on the Rhapsody of the Seas or we keep going depending on how much
money we want to spend we could start getting on to the brand new ship that's
about to be released called the Symphony of the Seas 892 bucks regularly 3 grand
127 tonight for a balcony room Miami to Miami January 19th 2019 that's the new
ship if you want to see that one I can just go over here with my mouse to this
cruise deal number right there click on that
watch what happens we will now see this cruise appear here we go
there it is seven Knights departing January 19th on the symphony of the Seas
the inside is 686 ocean view 822 balcony 892 the suite 2070 $1 there are many
cabins classifications of balcony cabins and Suites so this will be the lowest
priced balcony available and up you're gonna have to call the 800 number two
vacations to go calm to get further information but this is a great way to
start figuring out where we're at if you'll note just below these pricing is
single rates if I click on the single rate now it's telling me that the inside
is 1401 for a single the ocean view is 1681 and a balcony is available for 1802
not the greatest deal it's probably double what the regular rate is right
off the get-go so let's go back to double occupancy if I can go back here
bingo I'm back to double occupancy 892 there are offers for the balcony it's
$125 per cabin onboard credit that is being offered by Royal Caribbean and
remember if you've watched my videos before and you're a shareholder of Royal
Caribbean for a one-week cruise if you own at least a hundred shares of Royal
Caribbean you'll get a $100 additional credit room credit which makes this a
$225 room credit or about 110 dollars a passenger under $12 a
passenger you take $112 off of that you're looking at this cruise base fare
around 770 for the week start to get quite affordable anyway this is a quick
recap this the cruise is priced in u.s. dollars per person based on double
occupancy prices of subject change without notice prices do include port
charges but do not include airfare airport or government taxes and fees you
can have to add probably 10 or 15% for that prices and promotions are for new
bookings only this also does not include tipping that's additionally is
additional as well and of course any onboard spending here's your itinerary

Just referred this video to a family member who wants to book a cruise for her parents. Your knowledge is valuable.

Jasmine Rivera · July 30, 2019 at 1:48 pm

this was a great video thank you. can you book online or do you have to call it in?

Krissi Cooper · July 30, 2019 at 1:48 pm

Do you have to pay in full when reserving? Do you add gratuities through them or do you pay them on board? Is this a trustworthy place to reserve a cruise? Thanks!

Dwayne · July 30, 2019 at 1:48 pm

very informative and helpful video. Thanks for this one Bruce

We checked the price of Royal Caribbean directly and then checked the price from this web site, and so far it's looking like we will save at least $300 going on the same cruise. So it does look they can save you money.

NurseNancy · July 30, 2019 at 1:48 pm

I like your enthusiasm! Thanks for the video…might catch one of your livestreams sometime!
