Let’s Find a Cruise


Select from thousands of cruises directly through our new search engine.

When you click on the “Cruises” tab from the main menu and click “Online Cruises,” you’ll have access to thousands of sailings in our database. Choose by destination, departure port, cruise line, ship, month or length of cruise. If you don’t find something you like, you can always call our Travel Agency or search the Internet for any available cruises and ask our Travel Consultant to reserve any cruise you find.

Selecting the Right Cruise

While you’re perusing the thousands of Online Cruises, you’ll find cruise vacation listings, which can include bonus offers, different cabin prices and detailed ship information (just click on the ship’s name). Since you have all the power when booking, make sure all your details and accommodations match what you want. Check for dates, cabin location, ports of call and anything else that you think is important for your vacation.

NOTE: Not all cruises are refundable so be aware when booking!

After You Book

One of our travel agents will call you soon after you book your trip online just to confirm that everything is in order. We don’t want you to get lost at any point in the process, so you’ll always have someone to contact if you have any questions about your trip.

Cruise Exchange/Global VIP

Search and choose from the list of cruises, just like you would a condo.

The process for reserving a Cruise Exchange or Global VIP cruise hasn’t changed, and both offer you the same great benefits. With Cruise Exchange, you can use your  Star Credits for a Caribbean cruise on Carnival, Norwegian or Royal Caribbean cruise lines during Value Season (some restrictions apply). Global VIP cruises are themed cruises often with exclusive entertainers on board, Global Connections hosts and extra perks such as onboard credits, complimentary specialty dining and more (Star Credits do not apply).

You can start planning your next cruise right now, online. If you need help or prefer to speak to a Travel Agent, call 800-879-7779 Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. CST.

  1. Need to add a place to enter future cruise credits. I could not do this and did not want to book on-line because of this. Because it was a long holiday weekend I must now wait until Monday Jan. 4th and possibly miss out on the cabin I wanted to book. All other changes to the new website are great, but this has been overlooked.

    • Hi Nancy,

      We apologize for the inconvenience. If you want to use your Star Credits to book a cruise, you must fill out a Cruise Exchange form on our website (link below) and one of our representatives will get back to you within 10 business days to start the booking process. This new cruise search is for those who want to book anything at anytime, without having to go through an agent.

      The request form is available for you to fill out, even while we are closed: (
