It’s such a good thing that cruising is no longer seen as the realm of retirees and single middle-aged folk looking for a partner, and it’s even better that budget cruises are starting to become more and more readily available. When it comes to budget cruises a lot really does depend on seasonality and location, so some of the best value and cheapest cruises are outside of what you might consider to be traditional vacation season. If you’re able to be flexible, budget cruises can take you all over the world.
