Cruises are a great way to explore the world. Wave Season (January-March) is a great time to book a cruise – with your other half, entire family, or even friends! During these months, you could score some great deals on a cruise vacation so make sure to talk to your travel agent. Here are some of the reasons we think you should book a cruise this year.
It’s easy to book.
When you use a travel agent, booking a cruise is easy. They can book all parts of your cruise trip for you – not just the cruise itself. That includes airfare and activities that you may have to arrange on your own when you don’t book with a travel professional.
You get a great value.
A cruise is typically cheaper than booking a vacation of similar length and with the same amount of activities. Plus, you often prepay for the trip so you don’t need to worry about spending money as often once on board (sometimes even food, drinks, and tips are prepaid for).
No need to unpack and repack when you go from city to city.
The beauty of a cruise is that once you board, you can get comfortable in your room without having to repack your bags until the trip is over. It’s a relaxed way to see multiple destinations in a short amount of time.
An easier way to visit foreign cities.
When you go on a cruise, you don’t need to do as much research or planning compared to visiting the same destinations in another fashion. Even if you don’t learn the language at all, it’s typically not an issue with a cruise.
Never run out of stuff to do.
At first you might think that you’d feel “stuck” on a cruise ship. That’s simply not true! There are so many activities to do. You can shop, eat, play, or even lounge around.
Everything you could need is on board.
Whether you forget your toothbrush at home, get injured, or want to buy a new shirt, you have access to almost everything you could possibly need right on the ship.
There’s a cruise for everyone, including families.
Not every cruise is the same, so don’t base your decision solely on someone else’s experience. There’s such a variety of cruises that you are sure to find one that fits your needs. Plus, bringing the kids along has never been easier! There are many activities specific to younger age groups that allow them to stay busy and socialize.
Don’t forget travel insurance to help protect your cruise plans! A travel protection plan from Travel Insured can help protect your travel investment. Talk to your travel advisor or visit www.travelinsured.com for more information.
