Save Up to 75% with Repositioning Cruises

Do you want to take a cruise? Yep, me too! The only thing that keeps me back (aside from that whole boat on the water issue...ever heard of Titanic?) is the price. Cruise vacations can be seriously expensive and then there's the price you pay to actually get yourself there too. But, that is where repositioning cruises come in.

Have you ever heard of a repositioning cruise? That's basically when the cruise line has to move the ship from one port to another usually due to weather. This can happen in places like Alaska for example which is only warm for a short period of time so when the seasons change, the boat has to move. The cool part about the move is that you can score tickets on these cruises for up to 75% off! Seriously.

Now, the downside is that you might have weather issues depending upon the time of the cruise and location so be sure to check into that. The other thing is since these boats are simply trying to move ports, they are not fully staffed and do not make a lot of stops. BUT...if you just want to be on a boat in the water then this is your deal.

Call your travel agent or book through the cruise line directly. Check out the Royal Caribbean Repositioning Cruise page for example, and book your cheap vacation today! Have you been on a repositioning cruise? If so, be sure to tell us about it!

I have taken multiple repositioning cruises. It is definitely a less expensive way to see more of the world. However, there is another cost to cost to consider which is one way air. One of my cruises was repositioning from Lisbon, Portugal to Galveston, Texas. Therefore you had to pay one way air to get you from the United States to Portugal. Just have to be careful not to lose all your savings with airfare.
