I have a difficult time convincing my friends and family that cruising is affordable. For some reason they think my husband and I are wealthy because we cruise and travel a lot. I try to explain to them that they can book through the cruise line or a travel site (priceline.co. for example) and pay a deposit which is sometimes $0-$99 then just pay over time up to a designated date. They thought that we just cashed out for the entire trip at once.....I'm curious to know how do you guys feed your cruise addictions? Do you save? Do you look for pay deposit only deals like I do? Do you just cash out because you are a baller? lol I would love to cruise at least twice a year instead of once.
