Repositioning Cruises 2013-2014: One Way Discounted Cruises

Repositioning cruises take place in the spring and fall when cruise lines relocate cruise ships due to seasonal demand.  In the spring, cruise lines will move ships to Alaska and Europe and then back to the Caribbean in the fall.  These repositioning cruises offer unique one way cruises across the Atlantic and others through the Panama Canal.

These cruises are often found at discounted rates as cruise lines do not like to sail without their ships being near full capacity. Because the cruises are one way, expensive one way airfare is needed and that attributes to the lower demand for these cruises.

Also, cruises across the Atlantic Ocean consist mostly of sea days and usually do not stop in many ports.
