    How to Save up to 71% on a Cruise

    A study by Cruisewatch.com, a metasearcher for cruises which uses artificial intelligence, found that booking the cruise destination at the right time can save you up to 71 percent off your cruise.

    The site's study examined 18,983 sailings by region with departures in 2017, and found a trend: as the date of departure approaches, cruise prices fluctuate to a greater extent. Some regions show up to a 71 percent price reduction on fares. There are huge differences between destinations.

    Many of the world's 15 cruise regions show the highest maximum price reduction between 75 and 55 days before departure. These include North America (71 percent), the Middle East (64 percent), South America (56 percent), and Southern Europe (59 percent).

    If you are flexible with your cabin choices, you could save money by booking your cruise last minute. Spontaneous travelers could save up to 61 percent on Hawaiian cruises by booking within three weeks of the departure date, according to Cruisewatch CEO and co-founder Markus Stumpe.

    Hawaii and Mexico are the best regions for this option. The best time to book Hawaiian cruises is 21 days before departure, and Mexican cruises can offer up to 46 percent off within 32 days prior to departure.

    The Caribbean has maximum price reductions of 51 percent off when you book around 59 days before departure. The trend extends to Bermuda, where maximum price reductions of 46 percent off happen 51 days before cruises set sail.

    According to Cruisewatch, some regions maintain fairly consistent pricing. If you want to plan ahead, regions such as Australia (35 percent), the South Sea (27 percent), and Alaska (19 percent) are good choices. These regions see relatively small price fluctuations, and they tend to happen 85 days before departure.

      Some regions offer fair price reductions and more planning time. These include:
    • Northern Europe (45 percent off 70 days pre-departure),
    • Galapagos cruises (39 percent off 79 days pre-departure),
    • Asia (38 percent off 84 days pre-departure), and
    • Transatlantic or Transpacific cruises (41 percent off 73 days pre-departure).

    Cruisewatch.com focuses on keeping things clear, simple, and personalized. They offer free, automatic updates on when to book a cruise for the best price on their website. They also regularly conduct research to find new insights for accurate price prediction analytics.

    Hong Kong on a Budget

    Lower airfare and hotel pricing makes Hong Kong more affordable. In 2018, rates on nonstop service between Los Angeles and Hong Kong maybe as low as $500 per person on Cathay Pacific Airways and Hong Kong Airlines' Los Angeles to Hong Kong service.
    1. The list of insider tips will help you experience Hong Kong without a big price tag.
    2. Use Hong Kong's public transportation system for the most cost-efficient way to get around the city. Travel between Hong Kong International Airport and Hong Kong Station in Central in 24 minutes for less than $13. In the city, use the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) stations. The typical wait time between trains is one to three minutes and one-way trips are less than $2.
    3. Take in the views with a seat on top of a double decker Hong Kong Tram. Called a 'ding ding' by the locals, the tram takes you on a winding loop of Hong Kong Island’s northern shore with views of Central’s skyscrapers, Victoria Park, and the Western Market for about a quarter.
    4. Experience Hong Kong's culture, history, art scene and entertainment through five free self-guided Old Town Central walking tours. Full versions of the free walking guides can be viewed and downloaded here.
    5. Cruise between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon on the Star Ferry. This cross-harbor tradition gets you a panoramic view of the Hong Kong Island coastline. Insider tip: Grab an upper-deck seat on a sailing just before 8 p.m. for one of the best views of Hong Kong’s Symphony of Light show for about 30 cents on weekdays.
    6. Eat your way through Hong Kong's casual food scene, where street food remain one of the most cost-effective and authentic ways to eat. A traditional Hong Kong breakfast with silk stocking milk tea costs less than $10 at the Central Hong Kong-style cafe Lan Fong Yuen. Or head to dim sum hotspot Tim Ho Wan in Sham Shui Po for the cheapest Michelin-starred meal in the world.
    7. Burn off dim sum by trekking along one of Hong Kong's many hikes taking in beaches, volcanic landscapes and remote temples for the cost of transportation to the trailhead. A trek along the Land of Legend trail takes you through Plover Cove Country Park, along a stream and a waterfall network known as Bride's Pool. A hike up Sunset Peak, Hong Kong's third highest peak for sunset viewing reveals seascapes, rustic stone huts, and seas of silvergrass.
    8. Pack a picnic and enjoy a beach. Hong Kong's long, twisting coastline has a collection of beaches, many close to the downtown area such as Sai Kung Beach, Big Wave Beach, or Repulse Bay.
    9. Take in the Symphony of Lights. The re-imagined light show illuminates the sky over Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour with rays of light sent out from rhythm from 40 buildings and locations. The 10-minute light show is free every night at 8 p.m., and can be best viewed from the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront.
    10. Negotiate at one of Hong Kong's street markets for some bargain shopping. The Ladies' Market in Kowloon has deals on clothes, bags, and accessories; Temple Street Night Market has discounted electronics, sporting goods, toys, and souvenirs. The Jade Market has deals on jade in all shapes, sizes and forms, plus pearls, semi-precious stones, and locally-made jewelry.

    Receive free sightseeing tours with Cathay Pacific's Extended Stay program when traveling to Hong Kong aboard Cathay Pacific and staying for three or more nights. You get your choice of a free tour, from a day-long, open-top bus tour, to an extensive tour of the local life and historic sights of Kowloon, or a guided walk through Old Town Central.
