Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) November 11, 2012
Cheap cruise deals are currently one of the most searched for phrases according to Google and for good reason. The cruise industry in the U.S. is a multibillion-dollar industry that pulls in money from men, women and seniors annually. Former cruise operator, David Kirkland, is now an author and is putting his secrets of the cruise industry out to the public for the first time. The Cruise Deals Guide website and book is available for download and explains what anyone needs to know to save big money on domestic and foreign cruises.
The cruise industry became popular in the early 1970s are trade embargoes were lifted and more tourists started visiting other destinations by way of the ocean. While the airline industry has suffered in recent years, the cruise industry is a booming business and there are cruises to just about any destination that is accessible by water.
Author and former cruise director David Kirkland explains in his book how to save a lot of money on any cruise to any destination.
“I teach things that average people don’t know unless they have spent time directing on a cruise ship,” Kirkland says in his book. One of the things that David teaches is how to get a cabin upgrade on any ship for no charge even if the ship is reportedly full.
“If more people knew the things that I teach in my book, the cruise industry would change dramatically,” Kirkland reveals in his book.
Popular cruises to destinations like the Bahamas, Cayman Islands, Mexico and to Canadian ports are very common according to published cruise line data. A popular way to avoid flying and paying expensive airline fees is to travel by ship on transatlantic crossings. The secrets now given away in the Cruise Deals Guide book apply to transatlantic cruises, short term cruises and repositioning cruises that are common at the end of each travel season.
Shore excursions are a popular way for cruise travelers to explore the different ports where cruise ships dock. These shore excursions are separately priced from the regular cost of a ticket. The Cruise Deals Guide book explains how hidden costs can inflate the cost of shore excursions and an in-depth review of what to avoid and what to say to cruise staff to get huge discounts is given to readers.
The Cruise Deals Guide is now available for download as an e-book to make it easy for cruise planners to get this accurate information from any location in the world.
