So what is fascinating about sailing on top of the waters of the world? No doubt you have met well-traveled individuals who sing the praises of cruising. For the uninitiated, the fascination with sailing on a floating city with hundreds, even thousands, of strangers may seem…well… strange. But cruising has some merit you may not have considered and you may find yourself appreciating aspects of the experience well enough to take the leap yourself!
Cruising offers a terrific opportunity for family time. Most ships allowing children have special programs to entertain young ones and the excitement of visiting multiple destinations is not lost on the kids. Again, some cruise lines are better situated for family experiences in terms of the demographic of the passengers, the onboard programs and the destinations. If you are traveling with children, this is one area where we will delve deeply into your own preferences and those of your younger passengers in tow!
Every cruise line has staff dedicated to daily activities for passengers. Large cruise ships typically have many varied opportunities ranging from classes to rock wall-climbing and surfing! Smaller expedition type cruises often have experts in the destination and ecology of the visited region who will provide expert insight into the culture and environment of the destinations. Other activities can include nightclubs, casinos, lectures and yoga. However, it is perfectly OK just to spend your time quietly lounging around the pool or the ship library, the choice is yours.
One of the great pastimes of cruising is getting to know others traveling with you. People of all backgrounds, ethnic and national origins sail with you, dine with you, visit the sights of your ports and share in the experience. However, even on the largest cruise ships it is easy to find a quiet corner to spend time with someone special or in small groups. Cruising is inherently romantic and the atmosphere intimate outside of the noise and pace of the most active on-ship venues.
Picking the right cruise is a decision with many variables: the cruise line, the cruise ship, the destination, the demographic of the passengers, the service, activities and, most importantly exactly what you desire from the experience. We want you to make an informed, intelligent buying decision! We work with our clients to ensure the cruise they choose is right for them and those traveling with them.
