Ready to take a break from all that hard work? Worried about the cost of a great vacation? Well, today's cruise lines offer all kinds of great value cruises and you're sure to find a vacation package that will fit your budget.

Tips on Finding Great Vacation Values

Cruises can generally be broken down into three categories: luxury, premium, and budget. Those interested in great vacation values should obviously avoid the luxury cruises. Though luxury cruises typically offer the best food, service, entertainment and accommodations, they do tend to be a bit pricey.

Budget cruises offer tons of great vacations. Budget cruises tend sail on 3 or 4 star ships, which means you will be sacrificing a bit when it comes to food, service and so forth. However, you can still have a perfectly amazing vacation on a budget cruise. You probably wouldn't even utilize a lot of the features that come on luxury liners anyway (Would you really need shrimp at 4:00 in the morning?), so there's no need to pay for them.

Keep in mind that there are special deals available on premium cruises as well. If your timing is right, you might find a premium ship offering cruises that cost as little as $100 more than the cruises offered on budget ships.
