LONDON, December 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
2014 may feel like a very long way away but now is the perfect time to be thinking about your cruise for the year in order to secure the best deal.
There are traditionally two ways to ensure that you get a great value cruise. You can book at the very last minute for a range of fantastic cruise deals or you can go the more reliable route and book long in advance. By doing this you ensure that you are getting both the destination and the ship of your dreams - all for as affordable a price as possible.
You can save up to thousands of pounds on board by booking an all-inclusivecruise, and, by booking in advance, you can enjoy a number of perks thrown in for free like extra hotel nights at your destination and upgrades on food packages onboard.
Here are just some of the fantastic trips on offer from Thomas Cook which you should book now to avoid disappointment in 2014:
P&O Cruises Adonia, 14 night Norwegian cruise
This two week Scandinavian cruise is ideal for those looking for stunning scenery and wildlife. The liner stops at half a dozen picturesque Norwegian towns before reaching its final destination, Geiranger.
Adonia is P&O Cruises smallest ship, with a guest capacity of 710, and provides an intimate and friendly cruise while still managing to offer all the facilities you would expect on a ship twice its size.
As a result, booking early is essential. This is one of the most popular ships currently offering cruises so make sure you don't miss out!
P&O Cruises Ventura, 14 night Mediterranean cruise
A Mediterranean cruise is a must for any keen traveller. With so many diverse and exceptional destinations in such a relatively small area, this is ideal for those looking for variety.
This 14 night cruise is among the most popular with stop offs at the likes of Monte Carlo, Rome and Valencia. Ventura is one of P&O Cruises largest ships but that doesn't mean that there will plenty of cabins left come 2014.
Due to the exceptional facilities on board, any cruise on this liner is extremely popular and booking in advance is advised.
P&O Cruises Azura, 17 night Mediterranean cruise
This 17 night trip is one of the most popular cruise holidays on offer. Starting from Southampton, it visits Dubrovnik, Venice, Sicily and many more locations on an inspiring route.
Azura's three-storey atrium is the hub of activities on the ship, which has built a reputation over the years for quality service and facilities. It is also especially popular with foodies due to the fact that Michelin starred chef Atul Kochhar's signature restaurant and wine bar are onboard alongside a restaurant created in partnership with TV's Olly Smith.
