How to Book a Cruise

There are several travel agencies specialising in cruise ship bookings that can help narrow down suitable ships and cruise lines to cater to your budget. They can also help you to choose the experiences that you’re seeking. Once upon a time Australia was really limited when it came to cruise ship holidays. Nowadays, you have options in Australia whether you want to stay in the pacific or go on a world cruise.

Most cruise lines have the option of making a direct booking on their website, but if you’re a first timer or a seasoned traveller you still might prefer to book through a travel agent. For first timers a travel agent booking is a good idea, as there are agents that specialise in cruise ship bookings. They can give you all of the advice that you need and they have all the deals and promotions at their fingertips. There are many discounts available and incentives when booking your cruise early (especially for seniors).

Cruise Ship Discounts

Cruise ships offer many types of discounts. Read on for advice on types of cruise line discounts:

  • A common discount you’ll find if you’re travelling with a few people is the multi-cabin discounts. This means that you get a discount if you book more than one cabin.
  • Other discounts can include buy one ticket and get the 2nd ticket for ½ price or a certain percentage off at least.
  • You could even get a cabin upgrade at a discount, or receive on-board spending money as an incentive to book a stateroom or higher.
