Sifting through your choices when shopping for a cruise ship vacation package can be like a kid in a candy store. Especially for first-time cruisers, the variety of choices can be overwhelming and exhausting and can really leave you feeling deflated. If you are considering a cruise ship vacation, then here are a few tips to choose the best cruise ship vacation package for you and your traveling companions.
Picking The Date
Cruise lines do not operate on a 365-day a year rotation.
If you think through the realities of cruising you can see that it would be impossible to empty a ship of thousands of people, completely clean and disinfect it, load it up again with supplies and be on its way in a matter of days. Because of this, most cruise ships operate on a limited basis throughout the year. Your first step when choosing a cruise ship vacation package is narrowing down the dates that you can travel.
Picking Your Destination
Once you’ve chosen your travel month, you need to decide the destination that is best for you. Realistic
ally this choice evolves around budget. Sure you can cruise to the Galapagos Islands but if you don’t have the thousands in cash to spend it’s best to move onto something else.
The most popular (and oftentimes cheapest) cruise destinations are the Caribbean and the Bahamas. Be sure to consider weather and available activities at each port of call.
Choosing Your Cruise Line
Considering there are over two hundred cruise ships currently in operation picking a cruise ship can be a daunting task. As you begin to research you will quickly see that each cruise is catered to a specific group of people. Your traveling companions will likely influence your decision. If you are traveling with children you will want to pick a ship that has age appropriate activities.
If you or your traveling companions have any disabilities you will want to make sure options are not limited. If you are a thrill seeker then choose a cruise line that has plenty of adventure sports when you reach ports of call.
Considering A Cruise Ship Vacation Package
Once you’ve determined your date, picked your destination and chosen which cruise line you would like to patron, spend some time researching cruise ship vacation packages. Sometimes you can get a great deal by bundling your cruise, airfare and any hotel accommodations needed at your port of departure.
If you are looking for a worry-free experience the best thing to do is work with a local travel agent who will make sure there are no loose ends in your cruise experience.
For many people, once they begin the experience of cruising they quickly become addicted!
It can be a great way to see new places and still have the comfort and security of luxury accommodations, great food and an unforgettable experience. Whether you are a first-timer or a seasoned cruiser, good luck and good travels to all!
