I'm contemplating booking a cruise for October 2022. Has anyone else book cruises that far out yet? I'm hoping the world will be back to normal by then.

I have two cruises booked for 2022, one in May and one in August.   I took advantage of a low deposit special on NCL, in order to have as little money as possible tied up in these uncertain times.

 

My August 2021 Carnival cruise, booked before the pandemic, just got canceled, and I am currently debating between a refund and re-booking for 2022, which would mean moving one of the 2022  ones to 2023.    

 

Even if I can get the vaccine soon, I worry about the situation in Europe, where my 2022 cruises are, whether or not the port cities want cruise passengers, how the onboard experience will be changed, whether the cruise lines will keep juggling ships and itineraries to meet the unknown demand, and how the major cruise lines will weather the economic devastation they must be enduring.     

 

I like having cruises to look forward to, but I am balancing that against how much money I want tied up in deposits.  And I only book with refundable deposits.

We booked a NCL cruise on their newest ship, the Encore last year for January of 2023 and when bookings opened up for the Celebration, we booked a 5 day as a side by side prior to our Encore sailing.

We have one of the Sailabration cruises booked in March, 2022. If the country isn't back up & running by then, it'll be like a Mad Max movie out there.

We are also on a sailabration for February 2022

Sure! Even have a B2B booked for February 2023 and the Panorama for April 2023.

Far out booking gets you great prices plus a choice of the best cabins.

I’m booked on the Freedom, 8 day Southern Caribbean in Oct 2022. I have to believe that COVID will be under control by then.... hopefully the cruise industry can hang on long enough to ride it out.

Had an amazing "All in Australia" offer that only required a minimal deposit and was able to choose a 9-day Great Barrier Reef cruise in an aft-extended balcony for April 2023!! 

 

I also have an Alaska cruise booked on HAL Koningsdam for May 2022.

 

I booked the Panorama in a Havana inside for Sept 2021 as a solo getaway but not too confident I'll be on that one, even if it does sail.  All depends on the travel restrictions in place at home here in Canada. Quarantine for 2 weeks after vacation doesn't work for me (or my job!) haha

We bbooked a R/T Panama Canal out of Baltinore for October 2022 

 

We just chose to book this October cruise as well. The price for 14 days is similar to a lot of 7 day cruise prices!  Only 4 ports with 8 sea days... a lot of sea days but both  Redfrog and Blue Iguana and a drink package should help me pass the time lol.  We've done super sized ships for a while, so looking forward to a the smaller Legend this time.  It's been some time since we cruised Carnival.
