Cruises are becoming more and more popular, for so many reasons. For starters, one you get aboard everything is included so there’s no worrying about budget or carrying your credit card around with you. Your bags remain in one place so you don’t have to drag them from destination to destination. There’s also the fact on a cruise you get to see more places than you could perhaps to see if you were island hopping or traveling by land. You can unpack in your room and get comfortable for the duration of your trip – sounds like a great holiday to me!
If you’re thinking of going on a cruise, you may be wondering where the best place to go on a cruise would be? Well it depends on what kind of experience you are after, but here are some of my tips for the best places to take a cruise for 2017:
There’s something about Alaska that’s untouched, full of natural beauty and peaceful. The truth is, there are many budget options for accommodation in Alaska such as camping grounds (mind the bears!) but accommodation prices can really creep up, especially in the summer time, which makes taking a cruise a really economical option. Also the amazing scenery in Alaska is even more stunning from the ship! If you want to go on an Alaskan cruise, there’s no better time than now.
2. The Galapagos Islands
Like Alaska, parts of these islands are quite remote and expensive to get to. And once you’re there, accommodation prices can be through the roof. Taking a cruise to the Galapagos Islands gets rid of the expense and hassle of organising your own cruise, while still allowing you take in these beautiful islands and admire the wildlife. After all, this is where Darwin went to study animals and made some of his greatest theories.
3. Through Central America
You can take a cruise that stops along Central America, visiting numerous countries in one simple trip. You’ll avoid the hassle of driving across pot hole roads and long boring journeys by night, stopping over in some of the continents best hot spots. This is a great way to see a few different countries when you don’t have enough time to travel through them by land – or simply don’t want to!
4. The Pacific Islands
Flights between the Pacific Islands can be quite expensive, so traveling on a cruise is definitely a way to reduce costs and inconvenience. Can you imagine waking up in Tahiti and then a few days later being in Fiji? It sounds like a lovely holiday to me. In this part of the world, you’ll be spoiled with some of the best beaches available on the planet and some of the warmest smiles you can find. The Pacific islands are a great option for a cruise.
Cruising is a great way to travel, to lower expenses, see more on your budget and also a more relaxing way to travel if you have young children.
