Are you taking a cruise anytime soon? If it’s your first or second time to do so, you’re most likely to encounter some strongly held “beliefs” which are actually misconceptions. Below are the ten most common ones and the facts behind these cruise myths.  

Misconception #1: You can book anytime because it does not matter

Timing matters in booking flights and in booking cruises. Most of the time cruise lines give extremely tempting deals to people who book at the last minute. The savings can be as big as 30% to 50% off. However, you will have to be in touch with a really good travel agent because these same cruise lines won’t let their other passengers know they’ve dropped the rates. While they want their ship to fill up, they don’t want an angry mob of passengers demanding for their money back.
