Book early to be sure of  a place and the best price – this is a smaller ship (about 800 passengers in all). We have a limited number of cabins available to our group. Our surveys have shown much stronger than expected interest, suggesting that this cruise may book out early.

If you are considering joining us the wise thing will be to plan and book early, especially if you want the better priced cabins. This is a popular cruise itinerary, and whilst we have some cabins reserved for us, the cruise line has the right to recall cabins from our allocation if their sales are strong and ours are low.
