Cruises...Once You Take One Cruise You'll Be Hooked Forever!

Aug 17, 2007
Cruises are quite possibly one of the best vacations you'll ever experience. Have you ever seen one of those giant white ships in port? They look like luxurious floating hotels; but they're much more. They are literally a city on the water. But what makes these ships so great is that they are a city with on purpose in mind: Everything on your vacation is focused on making sure that you are pampered and have an enjoyable experience.

The rooms are comfortable, there is plenty of entertainment, from moves to music to dancing to gambling to soaking in the sun's rays. Just about anything you find entertaining can be enjoyed on a cruise ship.

Cruises come in a variety of styles for every type of vacationer. For example, if you are a single person looking to find romance, you might enjoy a singles excursion which is specially designed to help single people meet other single people.

But you're not confined to a boat for the duration of your one of many vacations. These ships offer a variety of entertainment on land, as well, with pre-planned cruise shore excursions. Periodically during your vacation, the boat will dock at a port and you'll have the option of signing up on various on-land adventures to experience before returning to your cruise ship and heading to the next port.

Where can you go on your many cruises? The real question should be where can't you? There are so many choices that the hardest part is deciding which ship vacation you want to take. Do you want to coast Alaska's frigid waters and watch for whales? Do you want a Norwegian excursion and watch for Vikings (or at least float the waters they explored)? Or sail the med and head to the Mediterranean for a hot and sunny experience. Or you can go through the panama canal that leads you from one ocean to the other through the historically significant passage.

How much do the various cruises cost? Vacation costs are largely dependent on when you go. Like other travel companies, the more popular the destination, the more expensive it is to book a spot on a ship. If many people are trying to book a spot on a favorite ship to the hot Caribbean in the winter, it will be pricier than if only a few people are booking Alaska in the winter.

But don't let the price keep you away from enjoying one of these fabulous vacations. If you look around online you'll find discounts and internet sites that let you book a reservation on a ocean liner affordably. Sometimes there are last minute spot deals because they're about to set sail and have a few rooms left over. Whatever the case may be, you will probably find that you can enjoy a cruise ship more affordably than you thought.
