Going On A Cruise? Here Are Some Tips For Deciding:

By Igino Siciliano|May 30, 2016|Adventure Tours|

So you want to go on a cruise? Well, you got one little problem first: where to go, when, with whom and what type of cruise? There are so many choices nowadays that it can be overwhelming.

Just look at the options at the tips of your fingertips: Australian cruises, Mediterranean, Caribbean, River cruises (like down the fjords in Norway, the Danube in Europe and the Nile in Egypt) and even transatlantic ocean cruises (like from New York to London for instance)

Then there is the other thing to consider, what time of cruise? There are party cruises, themed cruises, relaxing cruises, and even cruises aimed at certain demographics (single, family or couples).

So many options, so many choices; each offers their own little thing, that others don’t. So how to make the choice?

So to make things easier for you, we’ve decided to drop off some tips:

1. Time of year and location. One of the first things to do is decide when you want to go on whale watching season in Hervey Bay. For example, if your looking at Mediterranean cruises, they are only offered in the European summer months (April to September). Same applies to ocean crossing cruises, where companies do it during the months that shipping companies can reposition their ships to match the high seasons’ tourist industry. Decide the date first.

2. Decide on the length of your cruise. Most cruises go for around 7 nights, but there are options for less days (3 to 4 days) and more (well over a month). It all comes down to where and how long you want to go for. For a first timer, best take a shorter trip. The experience might help you decide next time if you want to go for a long run.

3. Which cruise to choose. Once you got the basics narrowed down, it’s up to you decide the choice of which cruise line and ship you are interested in taking. Some cruises might take a smaller number of people compared to others, while some have much larger groups (don’t stress about being crowded out, huge ships have lots of space!)

4. Your Personality. Sounds weird, but in fact, its probably the most important decision to make, especially when it comes to determining your cruise enjoyment. For example, if your single person looking for party cruises, going to a Disney Cruise Line isn’t going to help. They are catered for families, just like Carnival Cruises cater to a party atmosphere for adults. Looking at what cruises offer is big decision, because in the end could make or break your trip.

Choosing a cruise can seem overwhelming, but the main point is wither down the little bits and pieces to decide which cruise you want and the one that’s going to give you the greatest holiday experience.

You cannot be more excited at the prospect of having some free time on your hands to do what you want without having to sit in a class and listen to a teacher teaching you. Your parents have also given you permission to go on vacation with your school friends as long as it is a safe place. So you get together with your friends one day and discus you plans for your vacation. Your friends suggest that you go outstation away from the hustle and bustle of city life and have a good time.

Outdoor activities

You and you friends finally decide on a resort that has a variety of outdoor activities that all of you can enjoy. Your school Bhutan holidays finally arrive and you and your friends are all set to go. Your bags are packed even before you get your school vacation because you cannot wait to get out of the city. Your parents are surprised at your enthusiasm of wanting to get out of the house so soon but understand that you really need a break from school activities. Your parents offer to drop you and your friends at the resort and finally you are on your way.

Sit and relax

Your holidays are going to be that much more interesting this year because you have chosen a place that has trekking, bird watching, canoeing boat rides and even a lake where you can just sit and relax. So what better vacation is there than this? As your vehicle drives into the resort you feel a breath of fresh air and a calm and peaceful atmosphere hit you. Your school days are soon forgotten when you get down from the vehicle and see the large trees that provide shade for the resort. Even your parents are happy with the place because they see the many safety signs warning people of danger that the hotel staff have put up as precautionary measures for their many visitors.

Water birds and clear blue sky

The first thing you and your friends do after leaving your bags in the room is to run down to the lake and watch the water birds as they fly from one end of the lake to the other. The view of the lake is out of this world and it is a long time since you have being close to a lake. Your friends decide to take a boat ride down the lake and you decide to join them as you sail down the lake you see the beautiful clear blue sky and other boats pass you by.
