Hello I am Chris Kruse, and I wrote "Cruise Like the Crew" to help you save big on your cruise holiday and experience a vacation truly off the beaten path. I work on ships and I hate to admit it, but I am as stingy as they come We crew members are on the ship to make money, not to spend it. We try to save all we can, as we live on the ship for months at a time. Crew members know where the free wifi hotspots are. We know where you can shop for a reasonable price and how to avoid tourist traps. We know how to have a good time without spending a fortune.
This book is not for everyone. If you are an average cruise ship passenger or a family, you shouldn't be reading this guide You should allow your cruise line to take advantage of you, to sell you overpriced tours, photo packages, and internet. You should gladly allow your cruise line to rip you off and treat you like everybody else who booked the same trip. This is how they make their money after all. Most cruise companies promise you the journey of a lifetime, an unforgettable experience. But if you follow the masses and do what everybody else is doing, you will all end up with the same, usually forgettable and random vacation. Most cruise guests are okay with that and gladly pay twice the price for a company-sponsored shore excursion just to make sure the ship will wait for them if the coach returns late. Most passengers don t mind to visit the same beach everybody else is going to and lie in the sand like sardines. Most people are perfectly happy to spend $6 for a beer at the beach bar, when they could buy a sixpack at the supermarket for the same price If you are one of those guests, please just google "how to save money on a cruise," and you will easily find all the usual suggestions on how to book your holiday cheap and save on drink packages on the ship. But please, don't follow my advice. It will not make you happy.
This guide is for smart individuals and couples who want to experience the unusual. People who travel to explore a new culture, who want to interact with the locals, try new things, and are not afraid to bargain. I won t recommend certain things some of the crew members do to save money like drinking Listerine instead of booze to get wasted (yes, I am not making this up) Or to hitchhike instead of taking an Uber (if you are voluntarily taking a meter taxi outside Indonesia or Thailand however, this guide is a waste of your time). Also, some advice you will find here will be against certain cruise lines' house rules, so please, check the fine print beforehand, if you bring back vodka to the ship in a Sprite bottle. However, if you are an adventurous traveler who is not afraid making your own decision and being in charge, this unconventional guide for clever cruisers will save you a fortune and introduce you to a brand new world of truly enriching travel options Straight from the crew to you - this is your secret guide to minimize expenses and to maximize fun.
