Consider taking a Cruise Vacation

By: Joshua F.

For many people cruise vacations have always been more fun of a tourist activity, rather than going to a theme park, or seeing a tourist attraction. Many people like to set sail on the ocean and see all the great things the water has to offer while doing many fun things on board as they set sail for an adventure.

Many companies such as Princess, Royal Caribbean, Holland and Carnival are some of the big names in the cruise line business. The companies offer a cruise deal where you can do many different activities on board such as swimming, dancing, and golf. When you purchase a cruise packages you will find out that different cruises has different activities verse another. When you order a travel package with one of these companies they will tell you the different things you are going to be able to do on their cruise ship. That's why when you are planning out a vacation on a cruise ship it is good to make a list of your interest, and compare them to what each company is offering. When it comes to me personally I am interested in golf, bowling, and swimming. Also I like to eat and don't want to be overcharged, along with having a cruise that has a good line of alcoholic drinks. So when I start to compare packages I will see which companies best fits my needs.

Price also becomes a consideration when asking myself if this package includes everything I want at a good price. Make sure you set a good budget amount for your cruise and know what your limit is so you don't overspend when going on a vacation liner. Speak with a travel agent and ask them to send you offer of what each company is willing to offer you that fit your budget.

But if you don't want to just go on some regular cruise by one of the big companies, there is always an option to go on a theme cruise. Companies like Disney offer theme cruises based on their brand. So if you decide to go on a Disney cruise you will have a cruise around the anything Disney. So you can expect the activities and fun things to do to be centered on Disney characters etc. For instance if you chose a Pirate theme cruise you would probably do role play type activities like going on an island where the ship will land and looking for buried treasure. Many of these things are fun for the whole family, so if you want to go on a cruise that won't bore the kids, theme cruises are top options. All these factors have to be considered when planning to go on a cruise. If you have kids you will probably want to do a theme cruise so they won't get bored, or if you're going with a lover you will want to do a regular cruise with good drinks. All things consider I would hope that when you board any ship you will have a wonderful time and make a lot of good memories.
