Cruise in Charleston with Discount Cruises

Though the layers of pollen on the ground in South Carolina means that allergies are running rampant, it also means that spring and summer are on our doorstep and it’s time to start planning those summer vacations. As the economy continues to show instability, many people still aren’t sure whether they can really afford to do any type of vacation other than pitching a tent in their backyard. However, if you’ve never thought about it, then well it’s time to start thinking about taking a cruise. I know you’re already timid because you assume the prices are steep for cruises, however, it’s never been a better time to find discount cruises from Charleston.

I recently came across another site that like so many before it, is another online travel agent for travelers scouring the web for the best travel discounts. The website is Discount Cruises and it offers cruise deals from Charleston and other ports around the world. With all the online travel discount sites, it can be difficult to find the right one. Our very own Carolina Nomad contributor Megan Riley recently discussed what she called the Travel Site Wars on her website. I liked Discount Cruises for a couple reasons. First of all, it’s niche travel site, unlike many of the travel sites that are very general and don’t focus on one area of travel. Secondly, I was hooked by features at the top of the home page like “80% off cruise deals” and “4-night cruise packages for as low as $169″. You’re going to be hard pressed to find a hotel room in the Bahamas for such a price for even one night.

Since we’re talking about the Carolinas, Discount Cruises offers many cruise deals from Charleston on Carnival. The search functionality is easy, letting users quickly search by cruise line, length of cruise and departure date. I did a couple different searches and found several different cruise packages that started at $199. If you still feel a little weary, you may find some comfort in the fact that Discount Cruises is a member Cruise Line International Association, which is the largest cruise association. So as you’re cutting down your list of budget vacations you can take this summer, add a cruise from Charleston to the list.
