When searching for the best deal on a cruise, keep in mind that the least expensive cabins are quite small, and down in the bowels of the ship with no view. Since cruise passengers will be on deck most of the time enjoying the amenities, the size of the cabin should not be a concern, particularly if you are traveling alone.

Transoceanic bargains can be had as the ship must be moved from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean or Alaska.
