Deciding to Cruise

We would like to use today's post to help you decide if cruising is for you. Cruising is a special type of vacation where you can choose to do as much or as little as you want. A typical day can be anything from sitting and reading to swimming to finding a drink with friends. There are many concerns people have regarding cruising. If you are worried about being seasick there are several things you can do to minimize the chances of this happening. You should look for a cabin near the center of the ship and on a lower deck. This will minimize the movement of the room both front and back and side to side. There are a variety of anti motion medications you can take, both orally and transdermal. We recommend the patch based ones as they are easier to deal with. Other factors regarding seasickness can be given by your travel agent. These include particular sailings based on time of year and passages that will be crossed.
Another common concern is the idea that you will be bored and trapped aboard the ship. This in our opinion couldn't be further from the truth. The ship provides a very wide variety of things to do. The ship will hit ports on most days of many voyages. This gives you the chance to get off the ship and explore the local area of your port visit. On the ship there are pools and sundecks to enjoy the outside fresh air. There are indoor and outdoor bars. Almost always a casino. With a library on board there are many quiet nooks to wrap up with a good book. Each day there will be a daily schedule of events that the ship is putting on. Everything from cooking demonstrations to trivia and bingo events. On most major cruise ships there really is something for everyone.
Cruises offer a great value to your vacation budget. Included in your cruise fare is your accommodations for each night of the cruise vacation.
Also included is all of your basic food. Yes specialty dining options can be had for a small surcharge but this is by no means required to have a good meal whenever you want it. On most ships this includes your room service as well. You are also getting your transportation from your departure port to all the other ports on your cruise included. This allows you to visit many destinations on a single trip. Most cruises have a variety of ports that allow you a shopping day, a beach day, an historic day, etc.

  1. It is a curious and difficult thing, to think that all is possible. No, probable. No, certain," I said, attempting to grasp the largeness of the thought."That nothing is improbable.
