Now is the time that the big cruise companies start to reposition their fleets away from the winter temperatures of the Mediterranean to the warmer climes of the Caribbean and the U.S. For those seeking out a bargain price on a cruise then now is the time to take advantage of repositioning cruise deals.
Cruise lines will be offering cheaper daily rates on board their ships because the itineraries will not include as many ports of call as one of their scheduled journeys around the Caribbean or around the Mediterranean. However the amenities on board the cruise liners will be mostly unchanged and therefore attractive to those who don’t mind spending their days on the open sea rather than at ports.
At the moment customers can book a trans-Atlantic cruise with Royal Caribbean out of Southampton for $719 for an inside cabin or $937 for a view of the ocean. The ship will stop off in Spain, France and Portugal before sailing across the Atlantic to Fort Lauderdale.
Holland America is also offering bargains for those wishing to sale when their ship is moved from Greece to Fort Lauderdale. The 24-night journey will stop off at several European ports before heading out into the Atlantic. Prices start at $1,999 for an inside cabin and $2,499 for a view of the sea.
