Cheap Cruise Packages in michigan

Just a bit of online research is all it takes to design your own Cheap Cruise Packages.

For instance, a round trip flight and hotel package from Denver, Colorado to Detroit, Michigan can cost less than $500 per person, based on double occupancy. 

Additionally, using the Name-Your-Own-Price feature on Priceline can save you as much as 40% on flights, and up to 60% on lodging in the state of Michigan. 

Also, you can save up to a thousand dollars on cheap cruise packages by booking your flight, car, and hotel at the same time.  

Ask your hotel representative about available cheap cruise packages around Michigan's abundant waterways. Some hotels will include cruise packages with your stay. 

Take a warm summer cruise on the Great Lakes. Explore inland rivers. These are some of the best cheap cruise packages in America. 

To save money on flights and hotel rooms, simply visit Priceline, input your desired dates and destination, then click the "Name Your Own Price" option. 

Be aware that certain rules apply to naming your own price on Priceline. For example,

  • NO changes can be made to your itinerary.
  • NO part of your payment can be refunded.
  • You don't typically get to choose a specific hotel. 

For maximum savings, book your flight at least two weeks in advance.

Also, compare prices for all major airports accessible from your area.  

For example, depending on your exact Michigan destination, you might fly into Detroit Michigan, or maybe Toledo Ohio, or maybe Milwaukee Wisconsin, or maybe Chicago. 

From any of these places, you can take a Greyhound or Trailways bus to your desired Michigan destination.
