Spa treatment costs can add up pretty quickly on a cruise, but you’ll often see the beauty and massage therapists around the pools at the beginning of your cruise spruiking their wears, trying to entice travellers to make an appointment. Say yes to the freebie products and services and enjoy without pressure to book.

3. Activities

The excursions are great, sure, but there’s a lot of fun to be had on the actual cruise, too, and a lot of it is free. There are classes that come with a cost, but there are also free activities to get you out and about including dance classes, performances and more.

4. Alcohol

Who doesn’t like a bit of free booze? Well, you’re in luck because there is the opportunity to receive free grog on a cruise. But it does come with a bit of effort. Cruise lines will often provide wine tasting evenings and that means, you guessed it, you get to taste, and drink, the alcohol on offer.
