We’ve been working for months pulling everything together for you and we can’t keep it in any longer! If you’re like us, we know you’re itching to start getting ready for your trip. So approximately four months before your vacation, we’ll announce our party themes. We want to take the stress out of scrambling at the last minute to figure out what to wear, so you’ll have plenty of time to start thinking about and shopping for your fabulous individual and group costumes. We’ll also begin to give you a preview of the entertainment you can expect with VACAYA. And with everything from online Q&As to pop-up concerts, we’ll give you a chance to connect with our entertainers in new and exciting ways. Each VACAYA trip will offer a different way to connect with our stars before your adventure with us begins, so stay tuned for more details!
VACAYA Bliss (our big-ship adventures): Approximately 90 days* before your cruise is when the countdown to your vacation really begins! We’ve submitted our final manifest to the cruise line and your official Booking Number has been generated. Participants in our VACAYA Breeze program receive their Booking Numbers first, followed a week later by fellow vacationers. Your Booking Number is the key to pulling everything together in advance, including making spa appointments, reserving shore excursions, and finding just the right time to enjoy one of our fine dining specialty restaurants. And, of course, if you’re not a planner, you’ll have the opportunity to book many of these extras onboard. But remember… nearly everything is based on the first come, first served rule, so you’ll want to get ‘em while the gettin’ is good!
VACAYA Oasis (our resort experiences): For our Oasis Resort programs (which don’t have a “Booking Number” equivalent), we’ll release program-specific information approximately 60 days prior to the vacation event. For our Breeze guests, you’ll be able to book your excursions/spa appointment/etc. in advance approximately 30 days out. Non-Breeze guests will book their extras in-person at the resort.
VACAYA Luxe (our small-ship adventures): For our Luxe programs (which vary greatly depending on the cruise line we’re working with), we’ll release program-specific information approximately 60 days before your vacation.

VACAYA partners with all the major cruise lines and some do not open online registration until closer to the sail date. We will, of course, communicate this to you from the very start if that’s the case with a particular program. You’ll have a full understanding of the anticipated timeline from the moment you book with us.
