It seems like so much time and effort goes into planning a vacation. With unlimited options and destinations, it can be overwhelming to even pick a location, let alone what you are going to do on it, biking, hiking, zip cording, or just taking in the rays. Cruise lines have simplified these options into a well-rounded vacation experience. With multiple destinations and wide range of boat and day activities you can be a part of. Cruises have something for everyone.
Whether you have kids and want to take the family out. Or to take a ride on the wide side with adult cruise only. With cost ranging from $200 to $2500 it has never been more affordable to take a break with one of the many cruise line packages out there. You can be your own Captain and plan today.

I love cruises. I have been on a few and they are by far the easiest and most fun trips I have taken. Once getting on the boat your worries float away. You pay for almost everything ahead of time so you do not have to worry about budgeting for food and there is plenty of entertainment on the ship, so excursions aren’t totally necessary, unless of course you want to go. The easy thing with those also is on the boat they have a person that takes care of it all for you. You just tell them your price range and what you are wanting to do and BAM it is done. In comparison to other vacations you have to plan everything yourself, whereas on the cruise ship you just have to figure out which destination you want to sail away too.
I agree with Jenna. I love cruises. I have only been to one but it was so much fun. There is pretty much something for everyone to do and the food is AMAZING (except you end up gaining some weight from eating all of it). Planning a cruise is not hard and there is various price ranges to fit everyone’s pocket. I personally hate planning things and having to have a set schedule during a vacation so I know that when I have a family of my own I am definitely be taking my kids on cruises to make the vacation a lot simpler and fun!
I’ve never been on a cruise but it is definitely what I want to do with my Spring Break next year! Its definitely nice to see that planning is extremely easy! Plus I love the fact that a lot of things are included in your cruise. Also I definitely enjoy that pretty much everything you need is there: entertainment, food, drinks, gorgeous locations, friends, and a whole lot of fun. Out of everything you can do for a vacation, I definitely think a cruise is the way to go!
Cruises, ah they seem so wonderful… but I have been on only one cruise I would classify it as unsatisfactory. Sure, to begin with I knew the entire cost of the trip ahead of time and I could decide if I wanted to participate in different excursions or just relax. But once I got on the cruise, I realized I had to spend a week eating glorified cafeteria food with rocky waters that made me sea sick. My cruise docked in Key West, Grand Cayman Islands and Jamaica. They were all beautiful places that I wanted to spend a week in, not just part of one day exploring these places and then having to go back on a ship. Overall, the idea of cruises are great– but before someone goes on a cruise they should carefully research it is exactly what they want. If I ever go on a cruise again, hopefully I have a better experience:)
I have always wanted to go on a cruise, but I have never found it to be convienent. Most cruise lines expect you to pay everything upfront, which isn’t always possible for college students. Once you’re on the cruise, you’re confined to the ship for a day or two until you reach your destination (same thing for the trip back to port). While this is acceptable for most, I like to sightsee and wander around for my entire trip. I don’t know that I would be comfortable knowing that I couldn’t leave the ship for a day. Understandably, it is an extremely large space with my options for entertainment and enjoyment, I just don’t know that I’m sold on the idea just yet.
I love the idea of cruises and can really appreciate what they offer the consumers. I have never personally been on a cruise but this post is right in line with all the great things I hear about them. It narrows down the decisions to be made and creates a more relaxed mind for the vacation you are trying to take. A cruise is definitely on my list of things to do and its great that even as a college student it is somewhat affordable without completely breaking the bank. I don’t know that I would even care where my destination was but just that I would be able to get on a boat and float away with a great deal of fun activities at my disposal. Needless to say, I will be trying to take my first cruise in the near future and see what all the hype is about!
