Holiday Cruise, when to book and what would you recommend?

My husband and I are planning to go for a Holiday Cruise, which one would you recommend? We pretty much done with Carribean and wants something new, fun and interesting. We are going on  Mediterranean  cruise next month so that's off the list for now. 😊Cheers!

Hawaii RT from LA?

Something from Australia?

Japan/Northern Asia?

Nail down what season you want to sail - that affects price . Peak season, less of a choice if you book late. If you're booking in peak season - need to do it early. We've done it a year in advance. For off-season, usually you can wait for the 60- 90 day deals.

Is price a factor?

Like those.

We are watching the price on celebrity eclipse that goes to Buenos Aires to Chile for 15 nights South America-Dec 2019 sailing.

Nice choice. Not a common cruise and south of the equator. You may want to book as early as you can once you decide. Holiday cruises are priced higher because there is a higher demand for them as they occur only once a year and the good cabins can go fast. Might also be able to nail down some decent perks. If they do not have a good sale on right now I might recommend waiting for the turkey day sales .. they are usually the best the cruise line will offer.

Cheers and good luck.

Anything in Europe, Australia or Hawaii. I wish that I could go on a Holiday cruise. I'd like to do New Year's Eve.
