Taking a cruise in the summer is an exciting way for travelers to visit various locations and only have to unpack once. While Caribbean cruises are one of the more popular routes, you may be interested in different cruising options. Here are three categories to consider when looking for cruise information.
For a long time, cruising was viewed as an adult-only activity. More and more cruise lines are offering family-friendly activities, including youth clubs, water parks, and entertainment designed just for kids. There are also theme cruises if you’re looking for an opportunity to sail with people who share interests with you. From your favorite author or entertainer to wine lovers cruises, religious themed cruises, and more – there is sure to be a cruise for everyone.
Cruise ships can vary in size. The mainstream cruise liners and mega cruise ships can hold upwards of 1,000 passengers, and have a variety of entertainment options such as casinos, spas, restaurants, and nightclubs. Smaller ships hold just a few hundred people and offer a more intimate atmosphere. These cruises tend to travel to less tourist-focused destinations and cater to small theme cruises or conventions. River cruise ships are small enough to navigate narrow waterways, but offer ports that are further inland. Expedition cruises feature remote destinations for adventure travelers and are not as luxurious as some other cruise ships.
With so many different kinds of cruise ships, cruising destinations are not limited to Caribbean islands and Mexico. Here are few destinations that you may not have previously considered:
Lastly, cruising can be expensive. While many cruise agencies offer travel insurance during the booking process, travelers forget that they can shop around for a better, more affordable and more custom cruise insurance policy. Cruise Insurance benefits can include trip cancellation and interruption benefits, international medical coverage and more.
