If you want to get good prices on cruises you need to book early or chance your luck and wait until the very last minute (the latter strategy carries the risk that you don’t get on the cruise at all). If you like booking early now is the time to move – cruises on the MSC Sinfonia at the end of 2011 and start of 2012, have just been opened for reservations.
Booking early helps you with 2 things:
- your cabin of preference is still available (typically the cheapest cabins get snapped up fastest)
- you can get a 30% discount on most cruises if you book and pay at least 6 months before the date of your cruise
The Sinfonia arrives in Cape Town on the 8th November 2011, and leaves South Africa’s shores on the 30th March 2012. Most of its cruises are from Durban, heading for destinations like Bazaruto, Portuguese Island (off Inhaca), Maputo, Inhambane and Pointe des Galets.
