Affordable Travel Guide to Cruises

One of the Dream Vacations We All Share: a Cruise

Cruises

Nautical buffs love them. And they’re ideal for people who want to visit several ports of call, but still have one place to call home for a week or two, or a month. But even committed landlubbers and gypsies adore cruises. It’s one of the idyllic styles of vacations that speaks to our need for complete rest and relaxation. Ahhhh, just take me on a cruise…

Perfect for events, such as music festivals or corporate functions, cruises are also much desired trips for milestone events in life, like weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and graduations. The experience is all about being there, not getting there, and having all your needs catered to. That’s hugely appealing on our hectic regular lives!

The world of cruise options is massive. From a city harbor boat cruise, to a small ship that cruises exotic locales like the Galapagos Islands or even Antarctica, to floating cities that visit sunny ports and fascinating places like Monaco, St. Pierre & Miquelon, Aruba, Alaska and Sicily. Anywhere that has a harbor big enough for a ship can be a cruise destination.

Some of what we will cover in the Cruises section of Affordable Travel vacations includes:

  • Caribbean and Mediterranean cruises, among the most popular of seafaring holidays.
  • River cruise; don’t forget the Danube!
  • Disney and family cruises that are geared to your special vacation needs.
  • Cruises that go up both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of North America; talk about different topography!
  • Jazz cruises (and other types of music-based vacations); check our article called “Crusin’ & Groovin” for the goods on cool jazz cruises.
  • And we’ll look at all the top cruise lines, including Princess, Norwegian, Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity and Costa.
