When thinking about planning a cruise, many individuals and family do not realize how many options are available to them. With the list below, Shenae Outerbridge hopes to use her career experience to help all individuals find the type of cruise that is perfect for them!
Types of Cruises
All-inclusive cruises offer all the luxuries that the other cruises do, but at one flat fee you pay upfront. This means that you won’t have to worry with your wallet or money on your cruise; it’s all covered. What better way to truly relax than to not stress over your finances?
Adventure cruises are designed to do just what the name says, provide you with adventurous experiences while you are on your cruise. Adventure cruises have scheduled stops for hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boarding, and many many more adventurous activities. Adventure cruises are offered in a variety of packages, including some all-inclusive options as well. This type of cruise is ideal for the active person looking to really explore the world.
Destination-specific cruises are those with tourist attractions as the focus. They have a set list of stops that are either site-seeing hot spots or popular destinations. They don’t focus as much of their energy on the on-ship activities or the adventurous activities, but rather taking you to see what you want to see on your trip. They usually offer long stops at each location to allow their guests time to explore and shop. These cruises include destinations like Greece, the Caribbean, Alaska, Jamaica, etc.
Family cruises are those designed with family in mind. They have several kid-friendly activities as well as family fun for all ages. There are even family cruises that are centered around your kids’ favorite movies or television shows. Family cruises also often offer discounts for group or family purchases, making it an even more affordable vacation.
Choosing the ideal cruise for you can feel overwhelming, but Shenae Outerbridge hopes this list helps you narrow it down a bit. For more information about the cruise line industry, be sure to follow Shenae Outerbridge on Quora and other social media platforms.
