5 Reasons to Book 2025 Cruises Now

Iglu Cruise, the UK’s no. 1 Cruise agency advises customers to book early and benefit for 5 reasons:

Sky Princess, offer 1

1. Get the Kids Booked In Early

Cruise Lines who welcome children on board limit the number of children in each age range, to ensure optimum fun and enjoyment on board, with the correct ratio of staff to children. Therefore families are booking family-friendly cruises for Summer 2025 to grab available sailings. 

How to do it

Iglu Cruise offers Mediterranean Adventurer from Southampton for 14 nights, on board Sky Princess, full board and entertainment from £4,988 (was £5,056) per family of four, departing August 9th 2025.  Includes Valencia, Barcelona, Toulon, Florence and Pisa (from Livorno), Rome and Alghero.


2. Secure a Solo Cabin

There are two ways of securing a solo cabin, and that’s either jumping straight away when sailings are launched with a full choice of dates and lines, or leaving it until the last minute, and taking any available cruise. There are both dedicated solo cabins and the option to pay for the single occupancy of a double cabin, but either way, demand is very high. 

How to do it

Iglu Cruise offers Canary Islands & Madeira from Southampton for 13 nights, on board P&O Cruises’ Ventura, full board, including entertainment, with no tipping required from £1,370 for a solo cabin (was £1,438)  departing April 20th 2025. Includes La Coruna, Funchal, La Palma, Santa Cruz, Lanzarote and Lisbon. 


3. Get the Cabin & Excursions you really want including cabin location 

Choosing a cabin can become quite an artform, and searching early opens up whole deck plans so you can select the exact cabin you want, be it mid-ship, in a quiet spot, or close to lifts. This becomes especially necessary when seeking an accessible cabin, a cabin with a good location for groups such as two cabins next to each other with a connecting door, or a balcony with an inside cabin across the corridor which saves money. Bagging your first choice of excursions can best be done with an early booking.

How to do it

Iglu Cruise offers Colours of the Caribbean & 7 nt Dominican Republic Stay for 15 nights in total, on board Marella Explorer 2 (adults only), all inclusive, from £2,147, based on two sharing an inside cabin, departing a range of UK airports on February 25th, 2025 and including overseas transfers.  Jump off and visit Tortola, St. Maarten, Antigua and Dominica before a hotel stay and flying home. Outside, Balcony cabins and Suites are also available. 


4. Healthy Discounts and low deposits

Early low deposits, even as low as £1 can be available, meaning you can secure a dream holiday with little financial commitment. At launch, cruises can also come with a discount of say 10% off, to entice early bookers. 

How to do it

Pre-book Cunard sailings now with a deposit of only £173. Iglu Cruise offers Madeira & Azores from Southampton for 13 nights on board Cunard’s Queen Victoria, full board, from £963 (was £989), based on two sharing an inside cabin departing on October 24th, 2025. 


5. Arrange a Payment Plan

Making budgeting easy, if booking early, a payment plan can be set up to take regular payments over the months, to make holiday planning light work. Iglu Cruise also finds bookings being made months to years ahead, giving time to save up for the trip. 

How to do it

Iglu Cruise offers Eastern Caribbean Celebration from Miami for 13 nights including the festive period, on board Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth, full board, from £2,151 per person (was £2,214) based on two sharing an inside cabin departing  a choice of UK airports on December 18th, 2025 and including overseas transfers.
