Whether you are a cruise rookie or veteran, you might be looking for a reason to pack up the family and hop on board! Cruises are a great value for your vacation dollar because (in most cases) they include food, accommodations, and entertainment. Every day you wake up in a new destination, but you only have to unpack once. Cruises are also fun for all ages as they have activities for toddlers and grandparents and everyone in between! AurTravel has some great cruise vacation insight below!
Cruise ships come in many different sizes and there are hundreds of cruise ships to pick from. The smallest hold less than 100 people and the largest hold more than 3,000 people. One of the best benefits of cruising is the variety of entertainment onboard such as shows, spas, onboard dining, and casinos. Branch out of your comfort zone and learn to salsa dance, climb a rock wall, or ice skate. You can do and learn more at sea than you ever thought possible.
While cruising you now can stay in touch with the outside world (if you want to). Most cruise ships have the ability to use Wi-Fi, cell service, and TV.
When planning a cruise consider the length of the cruise. Cruises can range from three-day weekend cruises to 100-day trips around the world. Whether you’re ready for a full week aboard a ship or a three to five day trip to the Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, or the Bahamas, AurTravel has options for you. Another consideration is your embarkation point. Do you want to fly or drive to the ship? We have options for you on any coast.
When is the best time to cruise Alaska, Caribbean, Hawaii, or Europe? For most cruise regions, there are high season, shoulder season, and low demand. Whether you’re looking for specifics like fall foliage in Canada or viewing wildlife in Alaska, we can find the best cruise for you.
Don’t forget to be prepared with your travel documents. A passport for U.S citizens is required for travel by sea. Most cruise lines require that the passport be valid for at least six months following the end of your travels. For Americans, there are a few popular cruise destinations that require a visa. Some of them are Turkey, Russia, and Brazil. Check with AurTravel for the requirements on your itinerary. In most cases vaccinations are not required for cruise destinations.
