Repositioning cruises 'are real bargains'

Date Posted: 01 Jun 2009
Holidaymakers could find themselves picking up a serious bargain by choosing to go on a repositioning cruise.

At least that is the opinion of Daily Mirror journalist Alan Hart, who has claimed that people can cruise from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean for just £50.

He explained that repositioning cruises see ships migrate like birds in the changing of the seasons.

For example, many ships spend the winter months in the West Indies before going east to Europe via the Caribbean.

"I spotted one with Ocean Village Two costing less than £1,200 a head for 22 nights," he explained.

The price includes a flight to the Caribbean as well as flights back to the UK from docking destination.

However, this comes after the Passenger Shipping Association recently claimed that holidaymakers could be saving themselves a lot of hassle by opting for cruises from the UK, saying that not having to fly takes the trouble out of cruises.

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
