On a tight budget and want to go on a cruise but have no idea where to start looking? Here’s our list of wallet-friendly cruise lines that should be your first port of call…and we’ll be adding to this list to keep it up to date!

Cruise Deals With Carnival

Carnival’s cruiser line really appeals to a large range of holidaymakers who are budget-conscious. They own a considerable fleet of 24 ships and have a wide reach stretching all the way around Europe, Mexico, Bermuda, the Caribbean and even Alaska, and offer really flexible durations, so whether you want a two-night mini-cruise or a  two week crossing over the Atlantic, they will have something for you. With a huge range of relaxing or fun-filled liners available, as well as low, low prices and many deals they offer throughout the year, it’s a no-brainer – particularly if you avoid silly-season when the schools have broken up!

Norwegian Cruise Line Deals

Another great option for those on a budget is the Norwegian Cruise Line. They offer loads of last-minute deals for an excellent-value cruise and have 12 or so ships, including the gigantic Norwegian Epic (which can hold 4100 passengers) and the Norwegian Dawn, pictured above. You can expect plenty of free activities and on offer, as well as some excellent food in their complimentary dining halls.
