The vacation cruise is becoming the most popular vacation a person can take!! Because cruising is one of the fastest growing areas of the travel industry available today!!

The 3 Types Of Cruise Lines
What gives a cruise vacation such worldwide appeal? It is the way they are designed to satisfy the wants and needs of all types of people in the world. There are three types of cruise lines offered in this industry…

  • Contemporary (Carnival and Royal Caribbean Cruise Line)
  • Premium (Princess and Celebrity)
  • Luxury (Seabourn and Crystal Cruises).

Some companies have different brands for different classes of cruises. For an example, Celebrity is owned by Royal Caribbean. Carnival owns Holland America, Princess, Cunard, Costa, Windstar, and Seabourn.

Cruise ships can also vary greatly by type and size. CLIA, the Cruise Line International Association, registers all reputable ships from river boats to mega ships.

Advantages Of A Vacation Cruise!
Cruises are sold as “one low price includes everything”. This is only true to an extent. There are many advantages to a cruise package.

However, a few things are not included in the cruise package, like: gratuities, alcohol, some soft drinks, shore excursions, the casino, and spa services.

But there are many fun and exciting things included in a cruise package including: superb dining, children’s programs, nightly Vegas/Broadway style shows, fitness centers, exciting destinations, swimming pools and saunas, 24-hour room service, auctions, meeting rooms, and a variety of other activities.

One of the most alluring and inviting aspects of the cruise vacation experience is the cuisine! Most cruise ships have both buffets and dining rooms available for all three meals and many options available between meals.

Dinner in the dining room is always a fine dining experience. Limitless choices and excellent chefs guarantee that everyone’s palate will be satisfied. Prepare to be enchanted with every course, served by a professional and accommodating wait staff.

In addition to the formal meals, you will never go hungry as the 24-hour room service, snack bars and restaurants are always available. All cruise lines can also service special-needs diets.
