A repositioning cruise sails from one port to another without making a return trip. Some cruise ships relocate to a different region to offer different itineraries one or more times per year, and passengers can sail on these one-way routes.
Passengers who sail on repositioning cruises enjoy reduced cruise prices, multiple days at sea, and the opportunity to visit a number of cruise regions or stop at out-of-the-way ports. Repositioning cruises can last a month or more. Some people find these cruises relaxing, while others find them stressful. Passengers usually pay the cost for return transportation to the original port, but some repositioning cruises offer one-way return airfare as part of the cruise package.
