Vacationing aboard a cruise ship is a great way for you and your partner to spend quality time together. The intimacy of the ship is just as important as on the ship when selecting a vacation on a cruise ship. Almost all extended cruise ships dock in a port and these ports are often located in another country but not always. You will want to consider a cruise line that offers stops in exotic and romantic ports to make the most out of your vacation destination. These ports may include but are not limited to the Hawaii Mexico the Bahamas or other parts of the Caribbean. Hawaii Mexico the Bahamas and the rest of the Caribbean all have a number of cruise ship ports. Additional ports can be found in the Untied States and overseas. What many passengers enjoy most about these particular ports is their climate. Because the climate and the overall weather could have an impact on the romance aboard your ship since tropical weather tends to add to the romance in the air.
After the destination is chosen one of the most important decisions to be made is how to choose a cruise ship. With almost 200 ships in more than 20 major cruise lines that may seem like a daunting task at first but youll find it easier than expected to narrow down the field. Make sure to select a cruise line that matches your personality and your expectations from your vacation. Are you taking a family vacation? The Disney cruise ships not surprisingly are geared towards families and children but Royal Caribbean also has an excellent reputation for ships that are family friendly and have great teen programs. If youre looking for a cruise ship for the perfect honeymoon Princess is associated with romance while Windstar or Regent Seven Seas are outfitted for luxury and private intimate moments.
Maintaining compliance with Chapter II SOLAS 74 amendments is cost prohibitive for some older ships and they are typically scrapped instead of being refurbished at great expense. There is a very important SOLAS implementation date coming up on January 10 2010. On that date all commercial international ships will be required to be in compliance with the new fire safety codes. The most important new codes deal with the use of combustible materials in the ship. It will be expensive to replace all combustible materials in ships with non-combustible or flame resistant SOLAS compliant materials that meet the new safety standards. This will result in many ships being sold for scrap metal. The looming SOLAS 2010 implementation date offers both perils and opportunities. The biggest peril is the possibility that the expense to bring a ship into full compliance with international standards will be greater than the value of the ship. However there is a silver lining in this cloud.
Another featured act on NCLs cruise ships is the Second City Comedy Troupe. Although I did not see their show on the Epic (... there just wasnt enough time to do everything... ) my wife and I have seen them on several other NCL cruise ships. In general we found their \"rehearsed\" skits to be very funny and their \"ad-libbed\" routines very \"un-funny\" (but then again I never really enjoyed watching Jonathan Winters who was regarded by many people as an \"ad-lib\" comedic genius). Activities on the ship were plentiful. Unique to the Epic were the \"Epic Plunge\" (a massive 7-deck water slide) 6 bowling alleys and the SVEDKA Ice Bar (which NCL touts as the first ice bar at sea) in which the entire contents (including the bar) are made of ice and the venue is maintained at a \"toasty\" 17-degree temperature to keep it from melting. Now thats \"really cool\"! Patrons are provided with heavy jackets before entering and vodka is clearly the beverage of choice.
