A Margarita...Suntan Lotion...and a Cruise Ship Vacation

Aug 17, 2007
Cruise ship vacations are quite possibly one of the best vacations you will experience. Ever see those giant white vessels in port? They look like luxurious floating hotels; but they are much more. They are literally a city on the water. But what makes these behemoths so great is that they are a city with only one purpose in mind: Everything on your cruise 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 cruise ship.

These Cruise ship vacations 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 especially designed to help single people meet other single people.

But you're not confined to a boat for the duration of your vacation. They offer a variety of entertainment on land, as well, with pre-planned cruise shore excursions. Periodically during your vacation, the ship 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 I go on my vacation?
The real question should be: where CAN'T you go on your holiday? There are so many choices that the hardest part is deciding which one you want to take. Do you want to go to 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 a cruise med and head to the Mediterranean for a hot and sunny experience. Or you can take a panama canal holiday that leads you from one ocean to the other through the historically significant passage.

How much do they cost?
Cruise ship 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 at the time period. If many people are trying to book a spot on a cruise ship to the hot Caribbean in the winter, it will be pricier than if only a few people are booking a vacation in the winter.

But don't let the price keep you away from enjoying a yourself. If you look around online you'll find discounts and cheap cruise sites that let you book a reservation on one affordably. Sometimes there are last minute 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.
