But when you are ready to book that trip, talk to us. There are a lot of ways to see the world, but not all of them are right for you. Without a Professional Certified Travel Agent, you are on your own and that can be uncomfortable and expensive.
All You Ever Wanted to Know About a Cruise Vacation…
A cruise ship review can make your next cruise vacation better.
Starting with Noah’s Ark, people have floated on the water. All kinds of vessels, all kinds of bodies of water. We just love floating around the world.A cruise ship review can make your next cruise vacation better.
Contrary to those who have served in the Navy, today’s cruising is very comfortable, informative, entertaining, and can be the ultimate vacation. But it is like a pair of shoes, if it doesn’t fit you, you won’t be happy.
How do you know if a cruise fits you?
First of all, you need professional assistance. As the highest certified professional in the industry, I am constantly monitoring all the cruise lines and all the ships in each company. Just because your neighbor or Aunt Suzie cruised on a particular ship does not mean it is right for you. I build a personal relationship with you to find out as much as I can to put you on the best fit. Each time you cruise, your criteria may change and I have to know how to change for you. So, let’s start with the basics.
There are about 4 different classes of cruise lines…in my humble opinion.
- Mass Market
- Assorted miscellaneous types
LUXURY CRUISE LINES
PREMIUM CRUISE LINES
– A small number of companies in this category. Ships of various sizes, interesting ports of call with some overnights, high ratio of passengers to staff, may have some limited children’s programs, champagne on boarding, high quality service and food. Price-wise, a step down from the Luxury brands
MASS MARKET CRUISES
Larger ships, more family orientated, lots of onboard activities, many places to eat, busy and active ambiance and priced for the maximum population. Many newer ships and new builds coming all the time. Great for groups of all types with meeting room capabilities. Generational groups with activities for all ages.
ASSORTED MISCELLANEOUS CRUISE TYPES
- River cruises both in the US and around the world
- Sailing vessels
- Paddle wheelers
- Small ships in many places around the world
- Theme ships such as Disney Cruise Lines
- Expedition-type ships
- In France-self guided canal boats
