Should you book a 2022 cruise now?
While 2022 may seem like a long time from now, and with all the disruptions in our lives currently, booking a cruise for summer 2022 is not a bad idea.
One good reason to book a sailing now is to lock in the price when it is among the lowest you will find. Cruise prices fluctuate a lot, and over time, prices tend to increase as people book up rooms.
You can always reprice the cruise later with the Best Price Guarantee program, which allows for repricing of cruises in case of a price drop.
Another good reason to book a 2022 cruise is if you are interested in a specific room. Certain room categories or locations get booked up quickly because of their popularity and limited options.
Suites, staterooms with extra large balconies, and other unique staterooms are popular among cruise fans and booking now is a great way to secure these cabins for yourself.
