How to Book
Cruise Direct Online is a cruise and cruisetour price comparison site with extensive search capabilities for the 3 most popular destinations: Caribbean, Alaska and Europe Cruises. The prices shown come from the cruise line's own database. However, the cruise line's price is not necessary the best price available. This means that while cruise travelers decide on Cruise Direct Online which cruise or cruise tour is best for them, the booking process itself is best completed by speaking with one of our Certified Cruise Vacation Planners via phone. As not all promotional offers are shown online, to get your best price and see if you qualify for special rates and bonus offers you need to call us at 800.365.1445. We will be able to answers all your questions, give you all the help, guidance and advice you want, review your options, go over the offers shown on Cruise Direct Online, and book the cruise of your choice, subject to price and availability at the actual time of booking.

Cruise Direct Online can help you to find the perfect cruise at an affordable price from over 12000 sailings, 24 cruise lines and 350 cruise ships!

Our Good Deal Vacation Guarantee
A Guaranteed Good Deal or your money back!

We work really hard to bring you great Cruise Deals from the most popular cruise lines. When you see a Cruise Deal on our site, we want you to feel confident that your booking will have real value and meet or exceed your expectations. That's why we offer our Good Deal Vacation Guarantee.

Cruises & Cruisetours
We know choosing where and how much to spend on vacation travel is a big decision. That's why we have what we think is the best policy in the business. Go ahead and book a cruise with one of our Certified Cruise Vacation Planners by phone at 800.365.1445. Then, we'll place your deposit with the cruise line. We then give you right up to the day before final payment is due ( around 75 days prior to sailing ) to cancel your reservation, no questions asked, to receive a full refund of your deposit. No agency fees are charged. 100% of your deposit is refunded, directly by the cruise line. Once you've made a reservation, and placed a deposit with the cruise line, you are subject to the cruise line's or travel supplier's own cancellation and refund policy*. So, we do recommend that you consider
 trip insurance  to cover that unforeseen circumstance that would cause you to cancel your trip on or after the final payment date, when you paid up the balance of your cruise booking.
*Only a few exceptions, where the cruise line retains your deposit as a penalty should you cancel prior to final payment, based on their cancellation policy, would this Good Deal Vacation Guarantee be void.

     Cruise Secrets Revealed

    Did You Know?
    Most cruise lines do not allow travel agents to advertise prices lower than the cruise lines offer to those who book directly with the cruise line. However, some do allow travel agencies to discount by rebating part of the commissions, when dealing directly with a potential customer. If you are shopping the Internet for cruise prices, you're most likely going to find many travel sites quoting the same price. But, the price you're seeing on a travel agent's web site is not necessarily the best price that travel agency is able to offer you. To find out a travel agency's best price on a particular cruise, you should call them, or  e-mail them a request for a price quote. Most travel agencies have toll-free phone numbers. Don't hesitate to call or email them-- you could save a lot!

    "We just returned from our Princess South America cruise, and are now recovering from an excess of fun and good times ! We wanted to thank you for all the work you did to ensure a flawless cruise."

    " Our trip was excellent. The room, with the upgrades, was amazing! We saw many eagles (bald and golden), one bear, many whales, including one breach, seals, one bear, one wolf, moose and caribou, and many smaller animals.. If we travelled during salmon run, we probably would have seen more bear and eagles. The scenery is to die for, the vistas spectacular. The ship was great; service, food, etc were all great. Thanks for everything. "
