There might be details you won’t love. Therefore, getting the promotion is not a good idea at all. You would rather pay the full amount and enjoy the best that the cruise can offer.

Get insurance

You also need to get insurance once you have already settled the bills with the cruise. You need to be safe when you are travelling, and one of the best ways to ensure safety is insurance. There have been disastrous cruise trips in the past, and you don’t want to end up with more problems because you did not have an insurance.
