Booking Information

There are two ways to book your cabin: You can book on-line with our interactive booking engine or by calling us at (877) 225-5576. You will need to have your First and Last Names, as they appear on your passport and the Date of Birth (DOB) for each guest as well as your credit card. Most cruises have payment plans available, but if you would like to schedule a different payments plan (ie $200 per month), please give us a call and we will do out best to assist you.

Booking Considerations

Cabin Type
Do you prefer a cabin with or without a window? Cabins without a window are normally located on the inside corridor of the ship. There are also balcony rooms and suites. Balcony rooms come with an outside patio area where the scenery can be enjoyed without leaving quarters. Suites include a sleeping and dining area with additional amenities.
** If someone in your party is prone to sea sickness, choose a cabin that is on a lower level and in the middle of the ship.
Cabin Size
Having comfortable surroundings is important when going on a week-long cruise. Will you be spending a lot of time in the cabin? Do you want to wake up and drink coffee on the balcony? A small cabin with no window isn't a good fit for passengers that are claustrophobic. Make sure to determine your needs ahead of time and book a cabin that is sized accordingly.
Amenities
Cabins and suites offer a wide range of amenities from Concierge services, to menu upgrades and spa access, to wet bars and butlers in the suite class. Determine which perks will make your vacation complete before finalizing your cabin selection.
