How far in advance do I need to book my trip?

The sooner you book, the more options you’ll have in terms of trips, dates and the best pricing. For holiday periods and popular summer destinations, especially in Europe and the US national parks, dates sell out early (sometimes eight months prior to departure). On our Active Ocean & River Cruises, to get the maximum choice of dates and stateroom types, booking up to 18 months out is commonplace.
