Booking Early Brings Big Savings!
Experienced cruise ship passengers and travel booking agents all agree that in order to get the best travel deal including the cabin of your choice, it’s best to book your vacation well in advance of the trip.
This is especially important if you are wanting to participate in a themed event such as the Branson Comedy Cowboy Cruise which sails on a specific date (January 7-14 2012) and has the lowest introductory rates offered in advance. As the ship fills up, these prices often go up and you might find yourself disappointed that the moderately priced cabins with a private balcony are sold out leaving something that may cost too much, or may not be the type of accommodations you would prefer. To get the cabin space you desire on the cruise, as well as the necessary flight arrangements, it’s best to reserve your entire trip 9 to 11 months in advance if possible.
Balcony and other prime cabins on the newer luxury ships such as RCL’s Voyager of the Seas tend to sell out quickly, and now that they are being sold for this special January departure cruise, we recommend you book your space as early as possible.
Rising Fuel Prices May Impact Cruise Rates
As you plan to make your reservation for the Branson Comedy Cowboy Cruise, keep in mind the possibility of future announcements of additional fuel supplement increases. Worldwide fuel prices have continued to climb, and cruise lines will most likely continue to increase their fuel offset charges. So if you are considering joining us for our special theme cruise, it may be best to book now to lock in your rate and fees.
Rising fuel prices are a concern for almost every industry, and Carnival and the other major cruise line Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines (NYSE:RCL) are beginning to feel the impact. The stock market’s reaction was to send both stocks down on Carnival’s report. The travel and leisure industry has yet to feel a huge impact, but that could change. – Greg Shusinski, Investopedia.com
