Cruise travel has become a popular vacation and I can show you how to take a cruise for free. More cruise ships will be built over the next five years than all cruise ships built in the last 45 years.

Cruise travel is more affordable than ever before. And group cruise travel adds another layer of fun to the whole experience.

Most cruise lines will consider it a group cruise when eight or more cabins are booked. For every 15 full paying travelers, a free cruise is awarded. So if you want to take a free cruise, organize a group cruise and you travel for free.

What are some examples of a group cruise? A group is easily put together. First you can start with established groups like a family reunion, youth organization, professional organization, churches, non-profits, associations, etc. But you can also become creative and creative your own affinity group cruise: a fan of a sports team cruise, or a birthday celebration cruise, or a cruise for educators over the summer, or sweet sixteen and many, many more.

As you develop your idea for a cruise, be sure to keep in mind that some cruise vendors will allow you to do a fundraiser by adding an amount to the total price and returning this additional price to the organization. Some cruise vendors even will match your fundraising amounts.

It will be important to allow time for cruise travelers to make multiple payments. Usually a small deposit is return within 30 to 60 days then a second payment is do about 120 days before the sail date and the remaining balance is due about 60 days before the sail date. This time allows almost anyone to save and to be able to participate.

Your reward for all this planning is a free cruise for yourself. And if you should find the right group and end up with 20, 30 or even 50 cabins, do keep in mind that every 15 full paying cruise travelers will earn a free cruise.
