It is estimated that in the next five years there will be 55 new ships – 33 ocean ships and 22 riverboats.
No matter what you style of travel there is a ship for you. Whether you're looking for a ship with only 12 passengers or a ship with over 5,000 passengers there's a fit for you. Are you someone who prefers a structured schedule? Or are you looking to take things at your own pace? Do you long for a world class suite, or and informal exploration ship? Do you see yourself relaxing on a beach in the Bahamas, or exploring the glaciers of Alaska? Is your dream vacation out on the open seas, or cruising down a river? Whatever you want, and whoever you are, there's a cruise experience for everyone!
A common misconception is that Solo Cruising is a singles cruise. Nothing could be further from the truth! Experienced solo travelers love to head out on their next trip, take over their own personal stateroom, and live life on their own terms. As a solo traveler you can set your own schedule, dine at small restaurants, or mingle in larger dining areas. Whether you're looking for Luxury cruises or more budget friendly cruise lines, such as Carnival, there is something for everyone. Carnival for example, has the adults only Serenity Bar, were you can relax and unwind in a spacious, quiet atmosphere
Planning a family reunion or a special birthday or anniversary? Multi-generational travel has become more popular as families come together in unique and exciting ways to celebrate.
Think about it. On a cruise everything is taken care of for you. There's no stress of deciding where everyone will sleep, who's cooking, how are you going to occupy the kids, and there's no figuring out schedules. Just sit back, relax and enjoy!
Are you traveling in a group? Cruises are the perfect places for family, church, alumni, museum, and special interest groups to come together. Whether you're looking for a fund raiser for your organization or a new place for a business meeting, many cruise lines have exclusive areas and equipment available for the perfect presentations. With meals and entertainment included, you can wrap up a busy day with a relaxing and stunning private cocktail party.
If you are looking for the highest level of service and pampering, this is the way to go. Passengers on luxury ships enjoy all-inclusive service including both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, gratuities and on some ships all shore excursions. Staterooms are usually suite style with the highest quality of bedding and staff to guest ratio almost 1 to 1.
Do you dream of traveling to unspoiled destinations, and seeing corners of the world where nature remains untouched? Whether your bucket list involves sailing down the Amazon, exploring remote areas of Alaska by Zodiac, claim bragging rights for visiting Antarctica, or visit the famed Galapagos Islands with their giant tortoises, prehistoric marine iguanas and tiny penguins, we can help make those dreams a reality!
Larger ships with many on board activities have something for all ages and are popular with families. Royal Caribbean, Princess, Holland America Lines, Celebrity Cruise, and Disney Cruise Lines have Las Vegas type shows, gambling, spas, rock climbing walls, cooking classes, scuba classes, and much more.
