Why Cruise...

Vacations can be exhausting. Passports must be checked for validity. And then there’s the airport. Checking in, hauling carryon and kids through security, removing shoes and belts, taking laptops out of bags, and then repacking everything.  On a cruise you arrive at the terminal excited and ready to board the ship. Your bags are taken care of, and all that’s left to do is explore your new home.  

It’s more than a vacation-it’s an experience like none other. There are there lots of amazing things to do onboard so whatever your interest, you will find activities to keep you and your family busy.  You’ll also visit many different destinations all on one cruise, and only unpack once.  Every morning you wake up somewhere new, choosing to either stay onboard and enjoy the ship facilities, or explore the port of call’s on your cruise.   Every day you’re treated to a different show, the gourmet cuisine is delicious, and the children are having fun in the kids club while you relax by the pool.

 

Repositioning Cruises...

Repositioning cruises is when a ship changes regions for the season and sail unusual routes to get to their new homeports, often across an ocean or sea. Kind of like a snowbird where they move to warmer locations when the season changes. These voyages are usually discounted and include lots of sea days, as well as a mishmash of ports. There is a catch, Because these voyages begin in one port and end in another, passengers are responsible for picking up generally expensive one-way or open-jaw airfares.  So we normally use our frequently flyer mile since most are booked as oneway.  Just to give you a sample we did a 24 day cruise Sydney to Seattle $1400…
