Frequently asked questions about Boxing Day cruise sales

How do I get the best Boxing Day cruise deals?

  • Be flexible. Booking dates far in advance can help you save heaps. If you're quite flexible with travel dates, book to travel outside of school holidays and long weekends which are generally priced higher.
  • Don't cruise solo. While travelling solo and meeting new people on a cruise can add an exciting element to your trip, the cheapest cruises are twin or quadruple share.
  • Consider the deal. Cruise lines can offer deals that can be as trivial as free ice cream. Instead, look out for offers with more value such as discounts on the cruise itself, free flights and onboard credit.
  • Stay inside. Interior cabins are much cheaper than exterior ones as they don't have the luxury of windows in the room. Remember, it's not too far to go up to a deck for those panoramic ocean views.
  • Travel last minute. Cruise lines want to fill empty rooms. Those that are still unsold close to departure date often become heavily discounted, and Boxing Day is the perfect time to take advantage of the remaining summer sailings.
  • Book with a cruise line that suits your needs and travel style. Some cruises have water slides and kids' clubs for young families. Others feature nightly cabaret shows and themed dinners for a more mature audience. Consult our best cruises for your needs page to ensure you're booking a cruise that's right for you.
  • Don't be loyal to a line. Not every cruise line offers the same deal on Boxing Day. Shopping around means you could score a cheaper sailing with a similar itinerary.
  • Look at the deposit and cancellation policy before you book. It's easy to get excited about an epic deal and book on the fly without considering future committments. But before you book, see how flexible the cancellation policy is on the off chance that your plans change.

How do this year's Boxing day sales compare to previous years?

Over Boxing Day we've seen cruise lines offering everything from discounted cruises and deposit fees to bonus onboard credit (OBC).

Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises and Carnival Cruises have all stepped up to the mark in the past.

In previous years, Celebrity has offered up to $800 in savings, up to US$400 in OBC and up to 50% off fares for additional guests while Carnival Cruises has dropped twin share domestic cruises to $399pp.

Why should I book a cruise?

Booking a cruise for the first time is just as exciting as booking your tenth one. Cruises are a convenient way to travel because you only have to unpack once, you get to visit multiple destinations and ports without having to organise how to get from A to B, and almost everything is paid for before you step foot on the vessel. The great thing about having so many destination and cruise ship options is that you can find a cruise that suits your travel style and your desired travel route.
