Cruising is one of the best ways to explore some of the most exotic and foreign destinations in the world. Visiting ports of call at major cities and picturesque villages. An around the world cruise is nothing to take lightly. The planning, the research, finding the right cruise line to fit your dream vacation - it's hard work. And in this new realm of planning travel it can get overwhelming with most cruise lines changing itineraries and embarkation dates daily. That's why we've come up with a top 5 list of why NOW is the best time to start planning for your World Cruise.
1. BEST AVAILABILITY
You’ve undoubtedly heard the expression, “the early bird gets the worm”. Well the same is true for cruising and especially a world cruise. Oftentimes world cruisers are seasoned cruisers who have established loyalty with a specific cruise line and they have the opportunity to reserve their spots first. So a world cruise could potentially be halfway sold before it even reaches the public.
2. CHOICE OF SUITE
If you’re considering a world cruise then it is likely you have been on a cruise before. You know how essential it is to be in the best cabin possible. Whether you like to be in a specific room for luck or you prefer to be in a cabin closest to or farthest from the pool, it’s important to you where your cabin is located. Even picking the right side of the ship could be key to whether you see mostly land or mostly water as you navigate coast lines. Also, cruise ships typically have a limited number of suites and they are always the first to go. Planning now will increase your odds of getting the best cabin based on your preferences.
3. BEST PRICES
Did you know that almost all cruise lines offer better pricing the earlier you book? The old idea of waiting for last minute deals is no longer the best process. Cruise lines want you to book earlier because it helps them to plan all the logistics on their end. Beyond pricing, some cruise lines will even offer extra bonuses when you book early. For example, with Princess Cruises, if you book and pay in full by their deadline, they offer free gratuities, shipboard credit and free WiFi. By planning early, not only do you get a better price, but you also may receive better amenities.
4. BURGEONING INSPIRATION
Do you know that feeling of excitement you get when something fun you have planned is coming up? Whether it’s a birthday or a holiday, you find yourself smiling when you think about the event. You plan in your head what you might wear and you can already taste the delicious meal you’ll have. You feel happy and inspired. Now multiply that feeling by 120 days and you’ll feel what it’s like to be looking forward to a world cruise. Almost everyday will bring you to a new destination and a new awakening within yourself. In the days, months or even years leading up to your world cruise you will be dreaming of destinations and your life of luxury onboard. When you start planning now you’ll have something spectacular to look forward to.
