Cabin Upgrades and Free Flights!

Friday, January 14th, 2011

We all have those friends that are always bragging about how they got a free flight here or a complimentary upgrade there. It seems as though every time you run into them they are more than elated to go on and on about the last amazing deal they got. At some point you start to think that these people are just making up stories for attention…..but what if they are telling the truth? Have you been paying too much for your luxury cruises?

Well I can’t speak for everyone, but there are some really great deals out there for savvy travelers. Many cruise companies offer cabin upgrades for booking your cruise early, these companies like to get their ships filled asap and are willing to give away premier cabins as rewards. These also hold true for cruise consolidators like us, Destination Oceans. Most times we have the same deals available to our clients as the cruise line does.

Cruise consolidators may also have an extra advantage by bundling multiple services together. Often times we offer 2 for 1 airfare when you buy your luxury cruise through us offering substantial savings to the client. Even discounting the airfare significantly can reduce the overall cost of your vacation.

Here is a link to our Specials Page this will give you our most up to date deals available from Destination Oceans.

The best way to guarantee the lowest price is having the knowledge and booking early when you do see a special deal. Don’t ever be afraid to ask one of our trained cruise specialists about which cruises offer the best value. We are here to help you! Happy Cruising!

European River Cruises Part Deux

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

A European River Cruise vacation is easily the best way to relax while also absorbing all the rich culture Europe has to offer. You can lay out on the sun deck while all your troubles roll away while you take in the beautiful river banks. The only decisions you need to make are which cities you’d most like to visit. It’s never too early to plan for a 2011 river cruise!

Take for example the Avalon Waterways 5 Day Taste of Danube Cruise. On this river cruise you will begin your vacation in the “City of Music” Vienna, Austria. Then you will set sail on the Danube River till you arrive at your final destination, Budapest Hungry. This is one of the shorter cruises Destination Oceans has to offer.

On the other end of the spectrum there is the Avalon Waterways 20 day Grand Black Sea Cruise. This cruise begins in Bucharest, Romania at the entrance to the Black Sea and allows you to sail all the way up the Danube River until you arrive in Nuremberg, Germany. You will have access to many inside visits like Melk’s Benedictine Abbey or Hradcany Castle just to name a few. Have a look at all the River Cruises that Destination Oceans has available.

On a European River Cruise with Destination Oceans you will find that everything is taken care of for you by our friendly and knowledgeable cruise professionals. Let Destination Oceans plan your next vacation for you!

Planning ahead for your Cruise

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

Weather you’re an experienced cruise vacationer or this is the first cruise you’ve planned the best thing you can do is plan ahead. Even if you’re not ready to go on your cruise for over year, early is better then later in this instance. By booking early you will find the best pricing and availability when planning this far in advance instead of waiting until a few months before you’re ready to travel.

Making your decision early can save you hundreds of dollars and ensure that you get the perfect cruise for the exact dates you want to travel. You’ll also find that your stress levels will be much lower, which is key to planning a stress free trip. Many people procrastinate or think they can find better deals if they wait until the last minute but this is not the case with cruises or airfare.

Take for example the cruise line AMA Waterways.
They offer a 5% discount and a free balcony upgrade on all 2011 AMA river Cruises booked through Destination Oceans. This is just one example of the savings you will be eligible for booking early.

You’ll also find that just about every single date is open in terms of availability which is quite the opposite when you contact them a few months before the cruise. You’ll also be eligible for any optional land tours and hotels will have vacancies saving you a headache. Get the maximum out of your money and time by being well prepared for your future cruise!
