Would you book a cruise more than three years in advance?
In response to strong demand, Norwegian Cruise Line has decided to open bookings for its seven-night Hawaii sailings onboard the Pride of America more than three years in advance, to April 2015. Opening bookings so far in advance of the sailings is highly unusual in the cruise industry. “Guests have been requesting dates into 2014 and 2015,” the cruise line explains.
Travel agents are happy with the move – and meeting planners too. Companies and organisations tend to plan annual meetings and conferences a number of years in advance.
