One of the biggest questions we get asked is “when is the best time to book my cruise?” Here’s our top tip on the BEST time to book your cruise: RIGHT NOW. Why? Think about the last time you took a vacation. When did you get excited? If you are like most people, it’s the moment you make the decision to go and you put a deposit down. Until then, it is just an idea and it’s hard to get excited about an idea. Even if your trip is 6-12 months out, if you know you are deposited and have a trip planned it suddenly becomes real. The cruise lines also make it easy to deposit and make payments toward your cruise which also helps with budgeting. And your deposit is refundable should you need to cancel or move your trip (most cruise lines allow full refund if you cancel within 75-90 days before your cruise. Check with your cruise lines for their specific policy.)
You deserve to have something fun to look forward to, so why not add a cruise to your upcoming calendar? Not to mention, after you’ve taken your relaxing, unplugged cruise, you may find you are more effective at your job by simply getting a way, whether for a few days or a week. PLUS — it is still wave season in the cruise industry when the best deals are available on nearly all cruise lines. Get with your travel agent (or you can use ours, www.TeamCruises.com) to help you plan and deposit your next cruise.
