Do Cheap Cruise Holidays Exist?

This is a sponsored post.

A cruise is a spectacular type of holiday. After all, waking up to new destinations every morning and exploring multiple locations in one fell swoop is certainly a great way to enjoy a holiday. But given the all inclusive nature of cruising and the enormous operational undertaking involved, it's not the cheapest type of holiday you'll ever find.



So is there such a thing as a cheap cruise? And if so, how do you find it?


Just like any holiday, cruise getaways vary enormously in experience and price. The cheapest cruises are usually the short-term variety that offer a limited range of onboard facilities. Mini cruises, for instance, typically take place over just one or two nights and visit one main destination like Bruges or Amsterdam. Cruise operators that offer mini cruise itineraries can keep the cost down by offering a limited number of onboard facilities, and this is a great way to snap up a fun-filled cheap cruise.

Another way to find a cheap cruise is to try classic money-saving tactics like searching for late deals. Just like package holidays, you can often find a cheap cruise - or at least, a discounted cruise holiday - by searching for itineraries departing within the next few weeks. Again, the prices and offers vary enormously, but it's usually a great place to start. You can also find regular deals on holidays booked well in advance. Early bird offers are designed to attract customers to book next year's holidays and to help push sales along a little quicker - which is good news for the cruise operator and even better news for money-saving holidaymakers.

A 'cheap' cruise will depend on your definition of cheap. But there are always great deals and special offers available on pretty much all types of cruise holidays, which helps to make things that little bit easier.

Tinglayan, Kalinga: Sleeping Beauty, Tattoos, and Babkals

To meet the last tattoo artist Fang-od in the village of Buscalan, one has to board a bus to Tabuk for 12 hours, and take a 3-hr ride from Tabuk to Tinglayan.


There are regular trips from Tabuk to Tinglayan at 7 and 8 in the morning, but since misadventures seem to love us, we missed both trips. At 10AM, we stood at the jeepney stop waiting for any form of transportation. I asked around if there were jeeps stopping by anytime soon but I was just advised to sit and wait. And so we did.

Luckily, thirty minutes later, a jeep stopped in front of us, the driver asked the people where they were headed, and finally, he nodded and decided to go to Tinglayan. On the way to Tinglayan we were greeted with sweeping views of the mountains with the endless flow of the Chico River at its feet. The jeep went further upstream for 3 hours.

It was late in the afternoon when the jeepney pulled to a stop and told us that we were finally at Sleeping Beauty Inn. Francis Pa-in, our guide, came out to meet us an…

Face Your Fear: Mt. Makiling and the Bloodsucking Limatik

Coming from a one-year hiatus, I'm back with a pretty hardcore post. Go ahead and watch the video at the end.

I have a long-standing fear of small crawling or flying insects.. generally anything so small that can go and play inside bodily orifices (nose, ear, eyes, and all the other 'holes' we've got). Thinking of these things gives me the creeps. 
Naturally, stories of leeches (locally known as limatik) scare the heck out of me. Limatiks are widely known in the local hiking groups and there are thousands of horror stories that give me goosebumps. Last July 4, I had the chance to.. get acquainted with the little bloodsuckers.

2016: On Things Other Than Traveling

Photos from 2016 show fantastic things that happened to me this year (throwbacks included), but the real best things weren't caught on camera. Traveling was still a huge part of my year but more than these experiences, 2016 was a year of self-discovery. I'll call it the year I came to terms with my own titahood.

The Best of 2016 The gift of VipassanaThe best thing I gave myself this year was a 10-day Vipassana Meditation course. Years ago, I was looking for a meditation class knowing that I had to go deep in my mind as a form of cleansing.  I knew what I wanted: non-sectarian, in-depth, and stay-in. This year, I finally got myself a slot at the Vipassana Meditation Center Philippines
Ten days later, I felt like a different person. Vipassana is life-changing. The practice taught me to embrace impermanence and to make mindful choices. Vipassana was the catalyst that helped me to finally act on my beliefs. Mastering your mind (or at least the attempt to do so) is liberating. Waki…
