Is it best to book a cruise last minute?

Last-minute cruises are great options for spontaneous holiday-takers and last-minute adventure seekers. While P&O cruises sell out fast and you may not have as many options for last-minute cruise destinations or room options, you never know when you’ll come across a last minute cruise deal that’s too good to be true. If you’re flexible with your travel dates and you’re not attached to a specific cruise destination or type of room, our last-minute cruise deals could be perfect for you.

When is the best time to book a cruise?

The fear of missing out on the best cruise holidays is real. While there are some benefits to booking a cruise last minute, it might not be the best strategy for you. If your heart is set on a specific destination or you’re hoping to get the best room options for your cruise, our advice is: don’t wait! P&O cruises sell out fast. To make sure you have plenty of options, book your P&O cruise well in advance. Leave the last-minute cruise deals to the risk-takers and spontaneous adventure lovers, and secure your spot before they’re gone. Last minute cruise deal or not, our cruises offer incredible value for money year-round.


How late can you book a last minute cruise?

Our last minute cruises can be booked up to 4 days before the cruise departs, depending on availability. But if you’re hoping to nab a cruise to a specific destination, or hoping to get your choice of room, don’t leave it too long. Our cruises sell out fast, and you don’t want to miss out. Best to get in early if you find the best cruise holiday package for you to avoid disappointments!
