News When you search for a cruise online, you would be forgiven for thinking that the best and cheapest way to book your cruise is on the website directly. It’s NOT! Even though you may be blinded by the banners offering “lowest rate guaranteed”, most of the time, booking via the cruise line’s website is not the best deal at all. Why?
