10 Very Cheap Cruise Tours

Cheap Cruise Tours

Out of various modes of travel such as flights, train journeys, road trips, and ship voyages, very few people choose the last option.

This is in spite of wishing to go on a long cruise if not an around the world voyage. It is not that we have no time but simply have no patience. We always want to reach our destination yesterday.

It implies we really don’t like to travel but only to arrive at our chosen vacation spot.

Another myth is cruises are expensive. I admit, they were so but not anymore. Cruises are made very affordable to every one of us.

In addition to very cheap cruise tours, they are now tailor made to suit our short duration preferences.

Another big advantage of going on a cruise is every aspect of travel is taken care of for us. Almost nil planning is required from us.

All-inclusive cruises are meticulously planned.

They include:

  • designing a comfortable itinerary
  • providing food and drinks
  • port charges, onshore excursions
  • cultural exposures
  • local shopping
  • getting visa

In this blog post, I have listed 10 of the very cheap cruise tours that are in fact cost less than $500!

Moreover, Bermuda is surrounded by a staggering 180 islands, many of which may not be inhabited.  Bermuda is the world’s scuba diving capital because under its water lie numerous shipwrecks and crashed planes too that dived headlong under mysterious circumstances.

Pink sand beaches are another big attraction in Bermuda.
