How to Book
Cruise Direct Online is a Cruise & Cruise Tour Specialist. Our cruise and cruise tour price comparison site offers extensive search capabilities for 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 Cruises 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 Experts 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 Cruises Direct Online, and book the cruise of your choice, subject to price and availability at the actual time of booking.
