Book a Last Minute Repositioning Cruise this November



Before they arrive however, they have to sail here — and that gives guests the perfect opportunity to book a repositioning cruise. Repositioning cruises take place as a ship is moving from one port to another, and they usually cover vast distances to reach their destination. Due to being minimally marketed, repositioning sailings are rarely fully booked — leading cruise lines to offer massive discounts on selected routes.


If you’re interested in booking a last minute repositioning cruise ahead of the upcoming Wave Season, here’s our pick of the best sailings departing over the coming weeks.
