In cruise travel, Wave Season is the time of year that brings the very best discounts and special offers the cruise lines can dream up. When you book a cruise during Wave Season, you may be able to cruise longer, farther, and more luxuriously than you ever dreamed.
And, Wave Season 2022 will come ashore soon. It
takes place from January through March, which is traditionally
the most popular time of year for cruise bookings.
With so many deals
available, sorting through and comparing them can be a
challenge. So, Wave Season is a perfect time
to contact your professional travel advisor; they can help
you consider the options and make the best choices.
Still, you might want to do
some initial Wave Season browsing on your own. If you
do, know that Wave Season cruise fares may
not seem to be the lowest of the year – at least, not at
first glance. It’s important to look at what’s included in the fares;
the inclusions often deliver the greatest value of
booking a cruise during Wave Season.
Here are some examples of
what to look for:
Discounts on a second fare. Many cruise
lines offer “buy one, get another at reduced cost”
deals. The discount on the second fare may be as much
as 100 percent; basically a “two for one” deal. If you’re
traveling with a companion, you can arrange to share the savings.
Onboard credits. You can use onboard credits like cash
on your ship. What you can buy varies by cruise line, but often includes
beverage packages, spa treatments, specialty restaurant cover
charges, shore excursions, merchandise from onboard
boutiques, and more; fun extras that can truly enhance
your cruise experience.
Cabin upgrades. During wave season, a fare that would
usually be enough to reserve an inside cabin might include
an upgrade to an outside cabin – perhaps one with
a balcony. For a little more, you might even get an upgrade
to a suite that comes with special benefits, such as butler
service, access to an exclusive lounge, reservations at an
onboard specialty restaurant, or prime seats to
a popular show.
As you shop, it’s important to compare Wave
Season prices and inclusions to similar cruises outside of Wave
Season; and, to read all the “fine print” to be fully
informed about and confident in your deal. For help taking
