The Best 2018 Wave Season Deals

There’s a reason why January is the best time to book your cruise holiday…and not just because it helps to dispel those post-Christmas blues. This time of year is known as Wave Season and it is when cruise lines around the world release some of their best deals. Not only does this mean you can save yourself a fair amount on the cost of your holiday but also that there’s plenty of complimentary extras flying around of which you can take advantage.

Here are some great offers you should snap up whilst they’re available.

Celebrity Cruises – Choose Your Perk

Celebrity Cruises

As we count down excitably to the arrival of Celebrity Edge, the cruise line is giving us something else to get animated about. As long as you book before 15th March 2018, there are currently savings of up to £900 per stateroom to be had on a range of Worldwide cruises. Choose a sailing of six to nine nights and you’ll save up to £700, but any cruise of ten nights or more is eligible for the full savings. The final amount will depend on which grade of stateroom you choose.

In addition to this, you’ll also receive a complimentary Classic Drink package for two. That means free drinks for the duration of your cruise.
