You may have heard stories from friends about their disappointing cruise
experience because their kids were bored. Or your recently married cousin’s
honeymoon cruise was nerve-wracking because she went during Spring Break
when the cruise ship was populated with partying college kids. Deciding
on the cruise for you takes a little time, but it is well worth the
First of all, ask yourself what you want to get out of the cruise. Are
you in it for the rest and relaxation? Are you looking for exotic destinations
so you can explore to your heart’s content when the ship docks? Will
you be traveling with your children? Do you want to learn something
fun a la Discovery Channel? Looking to dress up for dinner and go dancing
every night? Or are you a real partier and want to meet singles or couples
your own age?
That’s a lot to think about, isn’t it? If you are going on the cruise
for just rest and relaxation and partake of the ship’s activities, invest
in a cabin that has windows or its own veranda. You’ll want to enjoy
the sea air sometimes without running into anyone else, so your own
balcony is the perfect solution.
Kids need constant entertainment so if you want to travel with them,
you need to find a cruise that will not only accommodate them but also
give you some adult stimulation. Some of the cruise lines that cater
to families have great rates and even offer special “kids cruise free”
promotions. Prices often include the cost of meals, snacks for the kids,
child care programs and other activities to keep kids occupied while
the adults go play. Be sure that if you want to go on a cruise during
the holidays to book at least a year in advance. Those are popular travel
times and fill up quickly.
If you are the swinging single type or just want to party a lot, there
are some cruise lines that cater to the young crowds. Typically filled
with rebel rousers from eighteen years of age to mid-thirties, expect
to not a get a lot of sleep. A lot of the cruises are sunny, tropical
destinations like Mexico and Bermuda.
Are you more of the adventurer type and want to head to the ancient
ruins of Mexican cities like Chichen Itza? Or is exploring the Nile
or Amazon Rivers more your style? Consider an enrichment cruise. Lectures
offered by “National Geographic or Discovery” type experts are often
on board and give you a closer look at these new worlds before you head
off on adventures when your ship docks.
No matter what you decide, there is a cruise just waiting for you! Are
you a quilter or Elvis fan? Themed cruises are fun. If you are a smoker,
there are cruise ships that allow it. Don’t want to miss your workouts
just because you are in the middle of an ocean? No problem! Many cruise
ships offer gyms, swimming pools, rock-climbing walls and other activities
to get your blood pumping.
Do your research! You can avoid those snafus that your friends and cousin
experienced. And when you get back from your own cruise, you can brag
about the great time you had.

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.
