The Benefits of Cruising
Personalized travel plans
When booking a cruise with a travel agent, your agent is able to get to know you and whomever will be traveling with you. They can tailor the perfect vacation to fit those specific desires. Additionally, various cruise ships cater to different crowds. For example, if you’re traveling with a family that includes children, perhaps cruising with Disney or Royal Caribbean would be the best fit. Traveling with seniors? A cruise with Holland America could be your best bet. As you book your cruise with one of our travel agents, you will discover that they have cruised on various cruise lines and can offer insightful advice as well as information about the atmosphere of each cruise line.
A personalized cruise experience can certainly make a difference in your vacation. Booking through someone that has a wealth of information about cruises and the ins and outs of ships makes things easier. They can find staterooms that aren’t near things such as noisy stairwells and other locations that are not as desirable. Additionally, when you book a cruise with a travel agent, you have someone on your side. In the event that travel plans go awry or you have any questions about your travels, having access to someone that has decades of experience is a real asset.
Activities for everyone
Keeping in line with the idea that there are many cruise ships that cater to various crowds. There are a plethora of activities that vary by ship. As a blanket statement, you can be sure that regardless of the cruise ship you will have plenty of activities on board. From poolside activities and live entertainment such as comedians and theater, to an on-board casino and sport courts. There are plenty of ways to spend your time on the ship!
Booking a vacation can be somewhat stressful. Even once you know where you would like to go (see: the impossible question, deciding where to go), there are accommodations, flights, day excursions and activities, meals, transportation and many more variables that must be thought of as you plan a vacation.
Cruises are unique and particularly appealing in this area. Board a cruise and unpack your bag just once — no packing and unpacking, settle into the same room that you’ll be in for the duration of the trip, meals and entertainment are included, and cruise your way to exotic destinations where all the details have been thought of. Options for shore excursions and the ability to have reliable transportation to and from various ports is a huge advantage of cruises. Considering each of these variables separately when traveling can end up costing much more than an all inclusive cruise package — especially if traveling with a family and multiple people.
Wake up in a new location every morning. Cruise ships have the unique advantage of letting you have a vacation as you travel to your next location. Sit poolside or watch live music as you travel hundred of miles to the next port. Many cruise lines make arrangements that you can choose to partake in as you make port. No need for you to organize transportation to a sight — simply tag along.
Traveling by cruise ship allows cruisers access to locations that would be rather difficult and time consuming to travel to by land. Consider reaching the fjords of Norway by means other than a cruise ship. A train, bus or car rental out to the remote edges of Norway is an excursion in its own right. Go on a cruise and find yourself among the nearly mystical fjords with no trouble at all! A cruise allows its passengers to travel the world in a very different and effective way.
Imagine an itinerary that cruises through Spain and passes through France, Italy, Greece, and Croatia. Finally ending as it drops you off in one of the most scenic locations in the world — Venice, Italy!
