Last Minute Cruises

Start your last minute cruise from Southampton

Last minute cruises are the perfect option for everyone from the spontaneous to those who can never seem to get away from their daily routine. And with last minute cruise deals from MSC, a spur-of-the-moment getaway is more affordable than ever.
  • Book as little as several days before your departure and save on destinations as diverse as Northern Europe, the United Arab Emirates, the Caribbean, and the  Mediterranean.

  • Whether it’s your first time taking last minute cruises or you’re a seasoned bargain-hunter, late booking doesn’t mean unorganized. In fact, planning a cruise is far less exhaustive than planning a regular holiday.

  • We’ll cover the gourmet food, luxury accommodations, and all the fees for excursions and day trips. Don’t worry about packing and unpacking, managing multiple hotel check-ins and outs, or getting your fair share of pool time – our last minute cruise is as immersive as all the cruises we offer.

  • Stay spontaneous and flexible in your getaway planning – and stay within your budget as well. Book your couple, family, or solo adventure on one of our last-minute cruises and get the time away that you deserve.
