Cruise Vacations

Cruise Vacation – Yes or No?

Cruise VacationCruise ships can offer substantial benefits… and drawbacks. Some people love them, and some people hate them, but they’re worthy of consideration, especially if you find other modes of travel too difficult or inconvenient.

A cruise makes it easy to visit several places in a single trip without the need to re-pack your belongings and sit in a car/train/bus/plane to travel to each one. Your hotel room comes along with you, and even provides the transportation. You may go to bed while your ship is in Nassau and wake up in St. Thomas – a great convenience but it can also make it easy to lose a sense of where you are.

On the other hand, seeing several islands or cities in a region can help you decide if and where you’d want to visit later for a longer time. Typical itineraries also limit the time you can spend in each place, usually just a short day of activities or sightseeing. They may also include one or more days at sea, a paradise if you enjoy a relaxing day by the pool, but frustrating if you prefer more active exploration.

Nonetheless, the benefits of a cruise far outweigh the drawbacks for enough people to support a growing industry.
