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.
I was invited to attend the exclusive 2-night (July 2 - 3 2010) pre-inaugural sailing for NCLs newest and largest ship the Norwegian Epic. Departing from NY City the sailing began with the ships naming ceremony which was hosted by comedian Jeff Garlin and featured the ships godmother Reba McEntire. Adding to the festivities was the Macys 4th of July Fireworks show which was broadcast live from the Epic on national television (WNBC). It included musical performances by Justin Bieber Enrique Iglesias and LeeAnn Rimes. As I have experienced many times in the past the folks at NCL really know how to throw a party! But lets focus on their new ship the Epic.
If it is an intimate relaxing and romantic cruise you are after then you are encouraged to search for a cruise ship that has an age limit for passengers. These cruise ships often restrict children from coming aboard. After all you may be unable to enjoy a romantic vacation if you are on a cruise ship that is overrun with kids. Many times cruise ships with a passenger age limit target their voyages specifically to couples looking for romance. While it is possible to find a cruise ship with an age limit for their passengers you may find it a bit difficult. If you are unable to find one inquire as to where couples with children will be placed on the ship. A number of popular cruise ships work to keep families and individual couples separated. If this policy is in place a cruise line is likely to state the policy on their website. The same information can be obtained by directly contacting a cruise ship representative.
The age groups as well as the themes catered for should also be looked at closely. There are cruise ships that do not allow children on board. Therefore individuals who would like to travel as a family will not be able to board such a ship. Furthermore certain ships have themes that are directed towards particular interests. Cruises that have sports themes with mini golf and swimming areas will not be enjoyable for individuals who are not sports enthusiasts.The environment in the cruise ship is also mentioned in a lot of cruise ship reviews. The individuals should always consider this in order to ensure that they are not bored during the trip. Some cruises have a very formal atmosphere while others have a party or carnival mood. The type of mood that the traveler would like should therefore be considered or they will definitely not enjoy themselves. It is a fact that cruises are very expensive and individuals who go on such trips always like to get their moneys worth. An individual who reads cruise ship reviews will be able to get a clear picture of what a certain cruise is like. This will help them to decide on the particular cruise before they swipe their card or open their wallet.
