Think about taking a cruise if you and your partner are searching your next romantic adventure. Many couples need a break from their daily routines filled with large workloads hectic schedules and children. This break often comes in the form of a romantic getaway on a variety of cruise ships. Many people dont even consider a cruise ship as an option when it comes to romantic getaways. However there are others who literally live for cruises and are likely to take two or more cruises each year. Whether youve been on a cruise ship before or not it is possible for you and your partner to have a romantic cruise ship getaway. You are encouraged to consider a number of factors before booking a cruise vacation getaway. These factors are important when planning a romantic getaway aboard a cruise ship. There are many different cruise ships and cruise lines to choose from.
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.
But in a few areas I did not perceive the unique design of the ship to be an advantage. For instance the exterior shape of the ship seemed a bit \"odd\" to me. The bow is somewhat \"stubby-looking\" and the stern is \"squared-off\" so that the ship does not have a \"sleek\" appearance from the outside. Adding to the irregular look is a massive 3-deck appendage that was seemingly \"plopped\" on top of the front section as an afterthought (or more likely to further maximize the ships interior space). Obviously the ships designers had to make some \"trade-offs\" to accomplish everything they did inside the ship and after all from a passengers perspective the interior design is far more important. The decor of the Epic is modern and somewhat more \"toned-down\" than other NCL ships. Getting around was not quite as easy because of the ships unique interior design. Rather than having its public areas running at a uniform width through the center of the ship the Epics interior gave the illusion of being designed that way but in several different places the interior width of the ship would seemingly vary and you would go to the right or to the left to enter another venue. So just when I thought I had seen the entire ship I would discover a new area. Having been on over 50 cruise ships I found the layout of the Epic to be very interesting and \"refreshing\".
Do the math. If one hundred buyers pool resources in exchange for a percentage of ship ownership the acquisition cost will be divided by that same number. One percent ownership of a $250000 cruise ship would cost a mere $2500 for ship acquisition. At the other end of the scale one percent ownership of a brand new mega cruise ship would cost five million dollars. There are some other figures that must be tabulated into the total cost of ownership. Acquisition cost is first and foremost. The next figure is the cost to put the ship in service. On an older ship this cost may be higher than the acquisition cost. On the other hand the cost to put a ship into service can be much lower if you were to get a good deal on a ship that already meets the international standards for ship safety especially SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea).
