cruise vacation

Often thought of as the ultimate way to travel, a cruise can be the cure for your overworked soul.

Imagine a vacation that your kids will love with activities onboard just for them. Escape with your spouse or significant other for well… some “you” time. Never hear your teens say, “I’m bored.” It’s the stuff dream vacations are made of for the entire family or a romantic getaway. Unpack once and travel to some of the world’s most stunning coastal ports and cities. From the exotic ports of the Caribbean’s best islands to the enchanting ports of Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa, there’s a perfect cruise for you.

The Cruise Experience

A cruise combines all of the elements you would pay individually for into one sweet package. You don’t have to worry about finding the perfect hotel and whether it’s located close to the things you want to see. You’re stateroom is beautifully appointed and the selection ranges from cozy value priced inside cabins to luxury over the top penthouse suites! Meals are included…and we’re not just talking about a buffet either. While the buffets are scrumptious, if a five-star dining experience is what you’re looking for, a cruise vacation will not disappoint. You won’t even pay for breakfast in bed. Overall, you’re likely to get a better value for your money with a cruise vacation.

Every cruise line and ship is not created equal. While most select a cruise based on itinerary, there are so many other factors to consider. Every ship and every cruise line has a personality. Are you an active traveler looking for some adventure onboard and onshore? Or perhaps you’d like to let your inner explorer come out and interact with the world around you rather than party across the seas. Do you prefer big crowds and a party scene or unmatched luxury in an intimate setting? How you like to travel and the experience you’re looking for is critical to selecting the perfect cruise ship for your vacation.

Size does matter!

Especially when it comes to cruise ships. If you prefer to explore off the beaten path, a small ship may be better for you. You’ll arrive at smaller ports that the large cruise ships can’t reach. You won’t have the crowds of the large cruise ships so you’re port visit will be more authentic without the touristy vendors. There are small ship experiences that carry only 200 passengers and luxury yachting experiences with no more than 120 guests. There’s more of an opportunity to mix with an international crowd onboard and less of a traditional cruise ship experience.

If you are looking for a more pampered experience and some organized activities a mid-size ship could be the solution for your cruise vacation. You’ll have more “evenings” in port enjoying the nighttime atmosphere after the big ships have departed. Mid size ships offer a nice selection of activities with plenty of free time to enjoy the ship’s amenities.

Maybe you’re looking for a vacation with non-stop activities, parties, entertainment, nightlife and multiple dining experiences. A large ship caters to all of that and more.
