Caribbean cruises are often viewed as the most popular types of cruises but they are not the single ones that are available. Vacation cruises are popular all across the globe including in Europe Canada and the Northern US. The ports of call on these cruises may be never be an option tropical but they still offer many fun and exciting attractions for cruise liner travelers. In addition ports of call you will also see information on a cruise ships final destination. When selecting a cruise ship the final destination is extremely important. This is because most but not every cruise ships return to their originally place of departure. For prevent unnecessary travel it is advised that you look for a cruise liner that returns to its original port of departure.
Cruises offer great value for your vacation dollar however many families are not sure what to expect on a cruise vacation. Many individuals mainly consisting of parents believe that cruises are not suited for kids but that is simply not true. If you are the parent of a child under the age of twelve you may be questioning whether or not they ought to accompany you on your next cruise. That is since a big number of cruise lines have tailored their cruise ships to children of all ages including those under the age of twelve. You are encouraged to keep cruise line activities in mind if you have yet to schedule your cruise ship booking. The activities for kids under the age of twelve will differ from ship to ship. That is why it is necessary that you analyze each ship before making a decision. Regardless of the fact that activities will vary from ship to ship there are numerous activities geared towards children under the age of twelve which can be discovered on almost all modern cruise ships.
A typical day aboard a cruise ship in Europe starts with breakfast being delivered to your room and placed on your balcony so you can watch as you gently glide into port. If you dont have anything planned for that day go the restaurant deck and enjoy a hearty meal. If you have a tour booked head for the meeting area that has been designated by the cruise line. In most cases the tours are four to five hours long giving you the rest of the day to explore more fully. If you have planned it right you can do your tour then return to the ship for lunch then go out in the afternoon to hit the spots you have chosen to see. Most cruise lines set sail for the next port in the early evening around 5 or 6 oclock. After you have watched the sail away you have time to get cleaned up have a drink and then have a leisurely dinner. There is always entertainment after dinner to enjoy. The casino and the bars will be opened to the late hours but remember you have an early start the next day.
One of the hallmarks of NCLs acclaimed \"Freestyle Cruising\" is the choice of dining options and not surprisingly the Epic takes this feature to a new level. In addition to the two main dining areas the Epic offers 17 other dining venues each with its own cuisine and ambiance. This includes the spacious main buffet area (the \"Garden Cafe\") in which the food was consistently fresh and of high-quality (albeit with somewhat less variety than weve experienced on some other ships). It also includes the poolside grill (\"Spice H2O\") \"OSheehans\" (a huge sprawling pub that became the meeting place and \"social nucleus\" for many of the ships guests) and several specialty restaurants such as La Cucina Italian restaurant (which was even more attractively decorated on the Epic than on other NCL ships) Tepanyaki Japanese grill (much larger than on other NCL ships) and Le Bistro French restaurant just to name a few. Each of the specialty restaurants has a \"cover charge\" (which ranges from $10 to $35 per person) but in my opinion they are all well worth the money.
