Cruising continues to grow in popularity with each passing year. In response, the cruise lines continue to find ever more inventive ways to entertain their guests. But the increasing popularity and offerings, however, do not mean it's necessary to spend a fortune to experience a cruise vacation in 2019. To save some cash, remember to look for cruises taking place during the so-called shoulder months. In other words, don't try to book a getaway to the Caribbean from June through August when everyone wants to sail. And avoid spring break, too, while you're at it. Opt for the tail end of winter through early spring or late fall to escape the crowds and score a bargain.
