Cruise - How To Avoid The Kids
What can be better for the nerves and the over stressed brain than a
long cruise on a ship around the Atlantic, stopping in at interesting
places to take in the sights and spending all of your time and money lazing
around, playing, and eating good food?
Nothing. Now factor in irritations like being splashed when you are
trying to read a book by the pool, or being squirted with a Super Soaker
9000 on your way to the dining room, or even nearly being knocked overboard
by a group of pre teens chasing one another around on the ship's deck.
In that case, there can be nothing more detrimental to those very same nerves.
Vacation is a time for relaxation, and while it hurts to say it sometimes
children don't contribute to that relaxing atmosphere. Who wants to
be annoyed and irritated by rowdy kids on board of a luxurious, "peaceful"
and costly cruise ship? Whether you have kids of your own at home or
not, they can be nerve-racking but sometimes they are one of those things
that just cannot be avoided.
So, does this mean that you can't take a cruise if you are looking for
a little peace? Of course not, but ship's rules alone are not going
to make distracted parents who think their responsibilities end at the
gangplank pay attention to their youngsters. If children bother you,
it is best to do a little research on the different options you have
available to you before you make finalized vacation plans.
There are some cruise lines out there that don't offer fun activities
for kids. At first glance, these might seem to be a bad idea because
there aren't any planned activities to keep the young ones out of your
hair, but if you think about it it really does make sense. "Family
friendly" cruise lines offer planned activities and itineraries for
young people for two reasons. First of all, they are establishing future
clientele by implanting the love of cruising in young people. Second
of all, whether they are discounted or not, ticket sales are ticket
sales, and ticket sales equal money! Family friendly cruises encourage
parents to bring their children along by offering these "even if you
bring them, you won't have to deal with them" children's activities
to generate revenue. Of course, cruises like this cause people to bring
their kids along when they would have normally left them at home with
Also, avoid cruising at times when the kids are out of school. Fewer
parents are inclined to call in for their kids during the school year
than you would think, and so it is for this reason that the summer months,
Christmas, and Spring Break (of course!) are horrible times to cruise
if children are not part of your plans.
In that same respect, cruise lines such as Disney, Carnival Cruises,
and Princess are not your best bet. These cruises tend to be a lot
more geared toward the younger generations and it is pretty hard to
avoid them at any time of year. Your best bet would be the Radisson,
Celebrity, or Crystal line of cruise ships.

I get free airline tickets & travel on a shoestring
Cheapest fares are always found online.
Wrong. Many of the wholesale airline contracts are prohibited
from being marketed on a website. If you're only searching Expedia,
Orbitz, Travelocity and the like, you're not seeing all the
really discounted fares that are available.
Buying direct from the airlines is good.
Wrong again. You just eliminated the possibility of buying a
consolidator airfare, which is almost always cheaper than anything
the airlines offer, and, the cheapest airfare are sold
only by travel agencies.
The airlines sell off unsold seats cheap at the last minute.
This myth can cost you big time or the cancellation of your
plans if you're not willing to pay the exorbitant price the
airlines want to extort from you. Believing this myth proves
you have no clue about the airlines' distribution system.
