Top Repositioning Cruises for 2016 & 2017

Posted April 11th, 2016

In summer, cruisers tend to visit beach-orientated destinations such as the Mediterranean or Caribbean. Meanwhile, winter sees travellers sail to the icy terrains of Alaska and Antarctica. But what about the seasons in between? Spring and autumn are known for their repositioning cruises (sometimes referred to as relocation cruises), where ships spend warmer days in a certain area and venture on a one-way journey to another destination for colder weather (and vice versa).

Repositioning cruises are perfect for those that wish to end their trip in another part of the world, possibly to continue travelling and explore a new region. They are also suitable for those passengers who don’t have to finish at the port from which they started. What’s even better?  As a result of running during off-peak seasons, many repositioning cruises are available at discounted prices, so you can cruise and enjoy great savings at the same time. Passengers will also be treated to more days at sea, providing more than enough time to rest and relax. If this sort of holiday interests you, keep reading. We’ve put together a list of some of the upcoming repositioning cruises from Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises that you should take advantage of!

Departing in April 2017, this 14-night cruise takes guests from Sydney to Singapore via Brisbane, Cairns, Port Douglas & Darwin. After departing from Sydney, guests will have their first night at sea where they can get settled on the ship and immerse themselves in the cruising lifestyle before docking in sunny Brisbane two days later, then after exploring the best of the Great Barrier Reef. After Darwin, four consecutive sea days gives cruisers the chance to enjoy Voyager of the Seas’ onboard facilities such as the Adventure Ocean Kids’ Program, Ice-Skating Rink, Portofino Italian Restaurant and Day Spa.

You’ll look forward to 17 nights of celebrity treatment on this leisurely cruise. Embarking from Sydney in April 2017, guests will first visit the beautiful Bay of Islands in New Zealand where on shore activities include kayaking, parasailing, and swimming with dolphins.
