The second thing to look for is the reputation that the cruise ship has. Most of the reviews are done by professionals in the industry who know all about ships and cruises. Cruise ships that are old and prone to damage should always be avoided. Also ships where crime has happened should be avoided. An individual should only go on a cruise which they trust since they may be spending weeks or months out at sea on the ship. The different stops that a cruise ship makes should also be considered. Cruises travel to different destinations throughout the world. There are individuals who would not be comfortable visiting certain ports. Others are looking for specific spots because of the beauty or uniqueness that they offer. They should always read through the reviews in order to know the exact spots before choosing the cruise that they prefer.
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 Food Since all restaurants offer a variety of culinary choices any evaluation of food is influenced not only by personal taste but also by what items are selected from the menu. For example on the first night my wife and I ate at the Manhattan Room one of the ships main dining areas. She had a chicken dish which she evaluated as \"OK\" while I had scallops which were very good. Like all public areas on the Epic the layout and décor of the Manhattan Room was a tribute to the ships designers. Wide open and \"airy\" the Manhattan Room had the look and feel of a fine dinner theater. In fact I was somewhat surprised when our dinner host (one of NCLs executives) informed us that the Manhattan Room was not a specialty restaurant. The other main dining room appropriately called \"Taste\" was also extremely well laid-out and pleasing to the eye. At the center of Taste is a beautiful chandelier (claimed to be the largest at sea) that spirals down from the deck above. Although I did not eat in Taste I am told that the menu is the same as the Manhattan Room so I would assume our assessment of the food would have been about the same (i.e. \"OK\" to \"very good\" depending on the entre selected and of course personal taste).
When examining the cruise ships offered by multiple cruise lines you ought to automatically be provided with cruise ship stops. This information may state where and when cruise will stop. Information may be available as to the amount of time the cruise ship plans on staying at a certain port. If the stop is long enough you it is in a position to view local attractions. All around the globe they are many ports that cruise liners regularly stop at. Nearly all the hottest ports are found in the Caribbean. If you are looking for a tropical cruise you may like to think about the climate of each port before making your reservation. Popular ports incorporate but arent limited to San Juan Puerto Rico and St. Thomas.
