However, there are a few drawbacks to taking a repositioning cruise that holidaymakers should be aware of.
One frequent cruise guest said: “Service is inconsistent. Have more complaints than regularly scheduled cruise itineraries.
“The port staff are not there daily or weekly, so the inexperienced staff and customs can take much longer embarkation, debarkation and ports in between.”
They added that some repositioning cruises are “going out of service”. They said: “Cabin furniture and systems may not be working at 100 percent.”
