Repositioning Cruises

Repositioning cruises are special because they relocate from one region to another a few times a year. This type of cruise showcases the industry’s most unusual itineraries, including voyages from Sydney to the Hawaiian Islands and historic St. Petersburg to bustling New York City. Because repositioning cruises don’t begin and end at the same port of call, they can be considered a one-way cruise journey.

Cruise lines usually schedule repositioning cruises in the spring and autumn, so their cruise ships can relocate from their summer to winter regions and vice versa. For example, cruise ships sailing the Mediterranean may relocate to the Caribbean as the weather gets colder in Europe. Cruise ships around Hawaii, Asia, and Australia will head to Alaska when winter approaches here at home.

Are you ready for an exciting adventure of a lifetime? A repositioning cruise is a perfect way to see spectacular destinations around the globe at a fraction of the cost of a standard cruise.

Repositioning cruises


What Are Repositioning Cruises?

Repositioning cruises take place when cruise ships relocate from one region to another. They usually take place during spring and autumn when ships move between their winter and summer bases. Rather than sailing without passengers, cruise lines offer savvy travellers the opportunity to snag a great deal on a one-way cruise. This type of cruise typically offers more sea days and is often combined with themed activities and entertainment to make your time at sea even more entertaining and enjoyable.

Things To Do On A Repositioning Cruise

Well, you can do the same as you would on a normal cruise. A repostioning cruise is exactly the same as a normal round trip cruise, it has all the same entertainment and dining options you have come to expect from your cruise. If anything the fact that you're on a repositioning cruise probably means you can do more with your holiday as you usually start and finish in different countries allowing you to do more with land arrangements pre and post cruise to really enhance your holiday experience.


Why should I go on a repositioning cruise?


Repositioning cruises are longer than average because most of these journeys are spent crossing the world’s oceans and waterways. They will make fewer stops in order to cover great distances. However, the ports of call are special because average cruises rarely visit them.

You can use these numerous sea days to relax, unwind, and appreciate the stunning sea views around you. Or you can take advantage of the ship’s many amenities, including the spa, sports facilities, dining and bar options, theatres, and other entertainment opportunities.

Repositioning cruises also generally cost less than an average cruise. Because the ports of embarkment and disembarkment are different, you would normally have to factor in pre- and post-cruise travel costs. However, thanks to Cruise1st’s amazing packaged cruise deals, airfare and accommodations are already included!
