Just wanted to let people know that there are really GREAT DEALS to be had on repositioning cruises. Reposition cruises leave and return to and from different ports, as in embark from NYC and end up in Miami. We will be sailing on the VOS Nov 18th 2005 for eight days for $750 per person. Superior outside with balcony on deck nine!!
And since we booked while on board we got an extra $100 in on board credit. Nice!
Has anyone experience any other such great deals? Even on other lines? Please tell!
I am on the VOS May 05 repo. Promanade cabin for 280/pp (before port charges and tax. It was 439, but they reduced it after I booked and I got the discount from my website. It is eight nights Miami to Bayonne NJ. Awesome!
We're on Radience in May for a repo cruise too. SanDiego to Canada...as for airfare, we went thru expedia.com to see what was available, then checked the airlines website direct...which was a little cheaper. We were looking at between 90 and 145 , we ended up with 92.00 pp for the airfare, but it took persistene, checking it about once a week.
Location: Wisconsin....about 100 miles south of the Frozen Tundra and 70 miles east of Camp Randall
Re: Repositioning Cruises
I got the Enchantment for $471 pp inside for a cruise from Quebec City to Fort Lauderdale.....a unique one time repo cruise. And add the single supplement for me it was less than $700.............pretty darn good for a single cruiser!
Crown Princess 1/18/14....the NEW Me, Myself and I cruise!
Please let me know where you look for these cruises. Are they in the catalogs that the cruise lines offer??? We have the time and would like to do this in the future. We live on the East Coast so Philadelphia and Baltimore would be perfect ports. We can drive to both. Any info is appreciated. Thanks
We last month were on the Brilliance for a repositioning cruise from Barcelona to Miami - 11 days - and bid for it on skyacution.com - won it with a bid of $360 and got a one way flight from miami to london (bidding) for $200
regarding where to find them, just go to a website like expedia.com or travelocity, whatever, then find the cruiseline you are interested in, and hunt them down We we open on our travel dates, which is the primary key to these cruises. We started by searching cruises from the port we wanted to leave on, and the comapny we wanted to cruise with...and then found the repo cruise to be an itinerary and price we liked !
I sailed the same cruise, got 459 PP for outside cabin, no shipboard credit thought, our airfare to Miami was 69PP on airtran.

One of the sites you can check for repo. cruises is Yahoo Travel, www.yahoo.com and click on the travel section. It'll take some moving around depending if you have a particular cruise line in mind, but the repo cruises do show up there.
