It's no secret that the world's economies are facing serious challenges. Yet who doesn't need a vacation during these times? Here are four reasons why that vacation should be a cruise.

First of all, surveys show you'll love it. Cruising consistently rates the highest on customer satisfaction rate of all vacation alternatives.

Secondly, one price includes countless amenities. Most cruise lines include the cost of your cabin, gourmet meals, buffets and 24/7 room service, live shows, fitness centers, maid service and dozens of onboard activities for adults and children alike-all as part of your cruise fare. You wont find a better deal on this level of service anywhere.

Third, cruise lines costs don't decrease if they sail with empty cabins. The staffs live on board-they still have to pay them. So cruise lines keep dropping prices until they can fill their ships. When demand is low, its not uncommon to find 7-night cruises for $350-$500 per person. That's right-your cabin, all your meals plus entertainment for about $50 per person per day.

Finally, the structure of the cruise industry means prices vary significantly from agency to agency, and CruiseCompete uses this fact to help you to help you save even more. While other sites just offer you a cruise price-take it or leave it-CruiseCompete allows you to select a sailing and get competing bids from more than 300 independent travel agents. Compare offers, and then contact agents directly via phone or e-mail for more information or to book.

With many people believing there is no economical way to take a vacation during these difficult times, its easy to find great bargains. The tough times won't last forever-you and your family deserve some cruise memories that will.
