What better way to brighten up the dark winter months than by planning your next cruise holiday? The Wave Season -- the cruising equivalent of the New Year sales -- traditionally runs from January to March, though this year some lines have extended their offer period with deals beginning December. Deals provide cruise lovers with the chance to grab an ocean or river cruise bargain, or bag extras such as drinks packages, onboard credit, buy-one-get-one-free fares and more.

The deals are already starting to come in, and keep checking back, as we'll be updating these deals as they are announced through the season.
