October is the Cruise Lines International Association’s “Choose Cruise Month,” which will feature some of the best deals and promotions of the year. For those that can be flexible with your travel dates and don’t have a need for a certain type of cabin, you can score a great deal on 2019 end of the year cruises. And for those that like to book early to make sure you get that specific date, perfect cabin, or high demand itineraries (such as Alaska), this is the time to get some great early-bird deals as well.

Here are just a few reasons why you should consider a cruise:

Cruises are about the journey and the destinations. You’d be hard-pressed to find another mode of transportation that’s as comfortable and service oriented as a cruise ship.

Wake up in a different place each morning but only unpack once. Traveling to multiple destinations on a single trip is a great way to maximize vacation time but the planning and hassle of different hotels and flights can be stressful. Checking in to your resort at sea gives you the best of both worlds.

Check off your bucket list destinations. Alaska is the top growth destination in the cruise industry, followed by Caribbean/Bermuda/Mexico, Mediterranean Europe and Canada/New England.

Check off your bucket list experiences. Not only can you cruise to the destinations of your dreams but you can experience the adventures you’ve always wanted to do once you get there, from dog sledding to zodiac expeditions. Again, Alaska tops the list for adventure cruisers, with the Galapagos, South Pacific and Antarctica also favorites.

If you’ve been considering a cruise, now is the time. In addition to the great deals you’ll find from the cruise lines, we are also offering $50 per cabin on-board credit if you book a cruise with us in October. Let us help you find your perfect cruise vacation!
