Is anything more lavish than going on a cruise ship? Traveling to mysterious locations on a luxury ship, catching sunrays, and feeling the cool breezes on your face can renew and replenish anyone, no matter how burned out they be.

However, a cruise ship holiday requires planning in order to be as good as it can be. To that end, here are some surefire tips to make your cruise experience something you'll always look back on fondly.

Here's some advice for getting a cheap cruise holiday.

You will want to schedule your trip in the off season to get the best deal. Ship cruise lines actually change prices a number of times throughout the year. Simply ask them when their absolute lowest season prices are.

In addition, keep your plans somewhat flexible so that you can change ships at the last minute. Sometimes a ship is not filled to capacity, so the cruise line will sell the last few tickets at a real bargain. It's always to their advantage to sail when the ship is filled to capacity because people on holiday spend money on souvenirs, drinks, etc. Use this insight to get a really great deal.

Where you cruise to on your holiday can make a big difference in your cost as well. If you pick a popular spot, you can travel cheaper than if you choose a less popular spot.

Another consideration is whether you really care about those ports of call. If you just want to stay on the ocean liner and enjoy the luxuries, book a cruise that doesn't stop anywhere. These "cruises to nowhere" are just as luxurious as the others but cost less.

To be safe on a cruise holiday, don't take a lot of expensive equipment or jewelry with you. Make sure your passport, health insurance, and other papers are up to date. Do this long in advance. Be sure to ask about laws you may inadvertently be breaking. Laws in ports and even in the water vary, and you sure don't want a big hassle with a foreign law enforcement agency.

To travel lighter, find out about equipment that will be available on the ship. For instance, if the cruise line provides irons or hair dryers, you won't need to pack yours. Also pack your own sample size shampoo, toothpaste, and other toiletries because these items will cost more in the gift shop.

You should have access to laundry facilities on your cruise holiday, so you don't have to take a huge amount of clothing.

Pick a wrinkle proof lightweight outfit for every two or three days and pick separates in colors that coordinate so you can get different looks.

Be sure to pack a formal and or semi-formal outfit if you will be taking part in these sort of activities on your cruise holiday.

Okay, ready to go?
