Global Morning News – It’s Wave Season with Celebrity Cruises

Posted on: March 9, 2024

What is the cruise wave season?

Traditionally, cruise lines offer attractive “wave season” promotions in January, February and into March. Think of wave season as the cruise industry's version of Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Although many people might like to wait until the last minute to book a tour it is recommended to book a cruise at least a few months in advance because you want to get the best possible room.

So how do you get a good room and what is involved – for me as a travel agent I check out what rooms are available in the category that works best for that customer. Rooms on cruise ships range from inside all the way up to owners suites. If at all possible I recommend going for a veranda room so that you have your own balcony and a view of the sea.

Some cruise lines, like Celebrity, have introduced the infinite veranda and I quite like this. It extends the space inside your room and, I think, makes your “veranda space” more private.

The infinite veranda with Celebrity is found on their newest ships and I had the pleasure of being on the inaugural voyage of The Beyond. Wow – what a beautiful ship. The public spaces are incredible with amazing art and fantastic eating venues. Celebrity has really raised the bar.

But how much does this cost? Well, as I said, it is Wave Season so you get to save big. Especially with The Travel Lady.

So here is your chance to save some money and take advantage of wave season.

Here are a couple of examples –
