There is a debate about when to book a cruise. Booking far in advance will ensure that you get the ship, exact room and seating that your heart desires. You might also be able to save a bit of money as you can usually avoid credit card fees. For those that are just looking for a great deal booking last minute might be the way to go. You do run the risk not getting your ideal room and price though so weigh this up when deciding.
There is also National Cruise Vacation Week with sales galore popping up online. Discounts and offers can range from onboard credit, a small percentage off of your overall fee, upgrades or if you are lucky, 2 for 1 cruise fares. The date of this sale week changes from year to year, so keep your eyes open for when this takes place in 2015.
Cruise lines will usually have sales throughout the year. Celebrity Cruise has a sale going on in early 2015. If you book an Oceanview stateroom or above on select cruises, they will provide you with free drinks, free gratuities or onboard spending money and up to £400 off certain European cruise routes.
