Here are some notes I've jotted down while researching repositioning cruises:
- Repositioning cruises can cost: $30-100+ per person per day (need to be aware of base price + port fees +taxes + mandatory gratuities)
- The cost includes: accommodations, food, transportation, entertainment (pools, bowling, shows, etc) , gym, all in one. Extra add-on costs include things like alcohol, wifi, etc.
- Vacationstogo.com is a great resource to find the cruise deals. To book a cruise, you will need to call them on the phone. When you call, they will ask if you want upgrades but you can politely decline if you don't want to pay more.
- Wi-Fi is infamous for being very slow and pricey on cruise ships. They will sometimes block certain sites and apps like YouTube and Netflix as well as restrict use of VPNs (like Surfshark: https://surfshark.club/friend/PwFCfFD5). If you are really tech savvy you might have workarounds - if you do, let us know in the comments!
- You can find great cruise deals on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Singles Day in Asia (November 11). Set calendar reminders now!
- Pros for cruises compared to flying: Avoid long travel day and jet jag so you can travel slow and arrive fresh. They have great food options and you can enjoy the stops at various ports.
- Cons of cruises: potentially bad weather depending on time of year at the ports, repositioning cruise may not in peak season (but this saves money!), add-ons can be expensive: Wifi can cost $30+ per day and I saw that laundry can be $29/load on Norwegian cruises.
- Something you need to consider is that you will need to get to the port city by flying, driving, etc. and then you will need transportation from the port city to your final destination.
- It's always good to compare flights vs cruise costs. The value and experience of a cruise might just be worth it!
- Cruises have Moose Juice. Enough said.
