How to Choose a Cruise

How to Choose a Cruise

Pick a location

Cruises allow you to visit multiple destinations in one holiday. Why go to just one place, when you can get variety? Consider the Mediterranean, Europe, Arabian Peninsula, West Indies, South America, South Africa, or entire grand voyages. Consider the time it takes to get to some of these locations, if that is a priority. Know in advance which tourist attractions you would like to see.

Schedule a number of nights

Figure out how many nights you can fit into your schedule. 7 night are quite normal. Some cruises last for 11 or 14 nights. Times of year are also crucial. The Emirates are better to visit during their winter, because of the weather. The North Carribean area is most comfortable from November to March. Every location has a preferable time for tourists. Have a look at the MSC Cruises site, and browse the various locations.

Plan to travel alone or with others

Know who you want to travel with, if there is anyone at all. If cruising independently, keep in mind that the cabins fit two adults. So there will be much more space. Although it can be a comfortable space away from the world. If a group trip is your kind of getaway, determine how many friends to bring and who to invite. Make sure you all have a clear agreement on what will be done, as a group or separately, to continue meeting expectations. Another option is to cruise as a couple without and friends or family. The two of you can share experiences, creating memories that will last a lifetime. Know what group arrangements suit your needs.

Keep an eye out for saver deals

Significant savings are available, to get the best value out of cruises. Have a look at deals, such as the 2nd Passenger for $1 with MSC Cruises during CLIA Plan a Cruise Month. Further offers are often available on beverages, spas, excursions and hotels.
