Not only do we have no service fees, no change fees and no cancellation fees* on cruise bookings – but our low price guarantee, exclusive offers to top destinations and effortless shopping path make planning your next cruise vacation a breeze.”

— Smart Search Technology: Travelers can simply select a destination and Travelocity will filter the remainder of their search choice options, leaving them with the most pertinent results for their desired trip.

— Nearby Port Search: Travelocity now lets you view results for multiple departure ports, giving flexible travelers the best value based on location.

— Expansive Ship Information: Travelers will find nearly 13,000 images, including panoramic 360-degree virtual tours, stateroom floor plans and helpful ship highlights in addition to fellow traveler reviews and expert third-party reviews.

— Cruise Experts – Customers also have the option of calling a Travelocity cruise expert to assist in making their booking. Specially-trained agents are available for free advice to help answer questions about ships, itineraries and specific destinations.

— Intelli-Deck(R) – This innovative technology displays views of specific ship features, such as cabin stateroom photos, images of public rooms (theatres, fitness areas, spas, restaurants, grand foyers, pools, clubs and other social venues) – all by just rolling over a deck plan.
