When it comes to finding your perfect river cruise, whether that’s the ideal itinerary, the right time of year or the best ship for your needs, booking early is the ideal way to find just what you’re looking for. Here’s why:

Find the perfect itinerary

River cruises are becoming a more and more popular choice with travellers, which means more ships and more itineraries to choose from. By booking early, you’ll have more time to look at what’s on offer as well as the widest possible choice of ships and itineraries, so that you don’t feel rushed into choosing a holiday that’s not right for you.

Find the perfect date

Depending on where it is that you want to go, there are river cruises offered throughout the year and by booking yours early, you’ll be able to find the voyage that’s right for you if you typically have a busy diary or are limited as to which times of year you can travel.

Find the perfect room

Because they all offer you splendid views of the passing scenery it could be argued that you’ll always find the ideal stateroom or cabin. However, though there are more river cruise ships in operation than ever before, they don’t cater to large numbers of passengers, so by booking early you’ll be able to make sure you get a place on-board a ship of your choice. Not only that but if you book early you’ll have a wider pick when it comes to finding the stateroom accommodation that most suits you, whether it’s close to the sun deck or next to the restaurant.

Find the perfect day

River cruises offer lots of time in port and with a new destination to explore every day, finding the best shore excursions is an important part of finding your ideal river cruise. By booking early, you can make sure you secure a place on all the excursions that you really want to go on, while there are still places available

Find peace of mind

All this preparation is sure to pay off and by booking early, you’ll remove all the worry that comes with leaving things to the last minute and will be able to sit back and relax, safe in the knowledge that everything has been taken care of.
