Becky said: “If you’ve never cruised before, you might be blown away by the choice of cabins.
“From an interior cabin with no window to a penthouse suite with a private wrap-around balcony, that’s before you consider the location aboard the ship.
“For those who have not sailed before, there are cabins set high and low, as well as fore, middle and aft.
“Midship cabins are best for those prone to motion sickness and I would highly recommend a balcony cabin to enjoy the view in the morning with a cup of coffee.”
Inside cabins are usually the cheapest option, but can feel claustrophobic for some travelers.
Suites are the most expensive option, but some of the options offered for families are truly incredible.
Royal Caribbean recently unveiled plans for its next shipIcon of the Seas, with a huge suite for a family of six.
Passengers concerned about seasickness should opt for a midship cabin where movement is often less noticeable.
She added: “My best advice for saving money is to sign up for the cruise line’s membership programs.
“For example, join MSC Cruises Voyagers Club and get a 5% discount all year round!
“And your discount also applies at a travel agency!”
Cruise line membership clubs usually offer members the best deals first, and they can also be the first to hear about upgrades.
Becky said: “Another top tip, book on board. When you book your next trip on board, you will receive additional benefits such as onboard credit or savings.”
Cruise lines will often encourage passengers to book their next cruise before disembarking.
Passengers can get an attractive deal if they are lucky and loyal customers can get more benefits.
Some loyal customers are rewarded with the chance to dine at the Captain’s Table on some cruise lines.
