Top tips for finding the best Boxing Day cruise deals online

Go with the flow: Be flexible with your dates and destination and you'll be much more likely to find a better deal.

Stay inside: Booking an interior cabin will get you the best deal on a cruise. While you won't have windows in your room, you'll save heaps. And, beside, it's not too far to go up to a deck for those panoramic ocean views.

To drive or to fly? Think about where the cruise departs from before booking and about whether the savings is worth the hassle of booking a flight and transfers to and from the port.

Location, location, location. Consider whether cruises are in-season wherever it is you’d like to go. If it’s peak season, the likelihood of finding a deal may be lower. If you’re happy to change things up and sail somewhere new, you might be able to get a better deal.

Travel last minute. It’s of no benefit to a cruise line to sail with empty rooms. Rooms that are still unsold close to departure date will often be heavily discounted, and Boxing Day is the perfect time to take advantage of the remaining summer sailings from the east coast.

Don’t be loyal to a line. Not every cruise line will offer the same deal, which could mean your preferred brand is more expensive than another that’s offering a very similar sailing. There’s a chance you can save a lot by simply switching to another cruise line.


Who had Boxing Day sales last year that I should look out for?

Last year we welcomed a handful of Boxing Day cruise deals from cruise lines as well as online travel agencies. For an idea of what this year's offerings could look like, here's what was hot on sale in 2017:

CompanyBoxing Day Deal
Cruise Sale FinderUp to 45% off Royal Caribbean sailings
Cruise Sale Finder$1 deposits + up to $400 OBC on P&O cruises
