You may or may not have heard of wave season, but if you are planning on taking a cruise in the next 12 – 18 months, it is important to know a little bit about Wave Season.
What is Wave Season?
Wave Season is a time when you will find amazing deals on cruises. You won’t just see great pricing though, during this time cruise lines will also offer perks like on-board credit, specialty dining packages, pre-paid gratuities, free upgrades, and beverage packages just to name a few.
When is Wave Season?
Wave Season occurs every year between January and March. This is the time of year that many people tend to plan vacations. The weather is cold and people are in a post-holiday lull. As a result, the cruise lines bring their “A” game at this time.
How should I prepare for Wave Season?
There are several ways to prepare for Wave Season. If you are interested in taking a cruise in the next 12 to 18 months, please let me know ahead of time. If I know the details of what you are looking for like when you wish to go, where you would like to go and what cruise line you would like to travel, I can be on the look out for deals that meet your needs. Many of the deals will last for a limited time, so getting most of the planning done ahead of time will allow you to be able to book quickly and capture the deal. Additionally, knowing what you are interested in will allow me to add a Cruise Fare Watch on the specific cruise that will enable me to know of deals, whether it is Wave Season or not.
