Why Book A Cruise Early?

1) Discount Fares

Many cruise lines offer their best fares when itineraries first go on sale, and then raise the rates as the ships sell out. Booking early allows you to secure the best possible pricing, usually with a low introductory fare.

2) Pick Of The Cabins

If you have a specific cabin location you’re after onboard, or maybe you’re even after a suite, booking early allows you to secure your ideal cabin. Some cruise lines even offer an upgrade depending how early you book!

3) Onboard Credit

Many cruise lines offer free onboard credit to those that secure a cabin within the early bird period. Essentially, this credit is a kind of cash back that can be spent while you’re onboard the ship.
