What is a Repositioning Cruise?

A repositioning cruise is the name given to a sailing that involves a cruise ship moving from one region to another. Owing to the seasonal nature of many cruise regions, repositioning cruises exist to provide guests the upmost cruising experience at the best time of year for any particular region of the world.

Common respositioning routes will see cruise ships sail from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean (and vice versa), from Alaska to Central America and from the Middle East to Asia.

3 reasons to choose a repositioning cruise:

1. Days at Sea:

Tthe itinerary of a repositioning cruise will inevitably consist of a number of sea days, therefore it would be the perfect choice if you love nothing more than being out on the open water for days at a time, or if you are looking for a cruise holiday which gives you enough time to take advantage of the ship's facilities.

2. Varied itineraries:

Traditionally, repositioning cruises operate from one port to another without stopping. However, it is now far more common to find repositioning cruise itineraries punctuated with ports of call throughout the sailing in order to break-up the multitude of sea days. As a repositioning cruise will cross a vast stretch of ocean in order to get to the next region, the ports of call on an itinerary will be slightly off-beat and a little more exotic than you might have encountered on previous voyages.

3. Cost:

As cruise lines operate repositioning cruises out of necessity, you will often find that they are available for a much lower per-day rate compared to standard mid-season fares. Booking a repositioning cruise is therefore a great idea if you are seeking a cruise holiday - especially one with a luxury cruise line - but are working to a tight budget.
