Taking a cruise for your next holiday adventure is one of the most economical and efficient ways to travel. With no hassles of packing and unpacking at multiple locations, your floating hotel delivers you to the door at some of the world's best tourist attractions. Cruise tours come in all shapes and sizes, and are designed to meet most budget requirements. You may calculate your cost by how many nights at sea you want and how many shore excursions you wish to purchase.
Options for cruise travel range from a quick sail down the river to a three month engagement on a world cruise crossing the seven seas. River cruise accommodations are typically smaller than the ocean liner rooms and offer fewer amenities. However, the advantage is seeing a concentrated number of ports within a smaller geographic location. If your cruise choice is two weeks on the Rhine, you can expect to see the best of Germany from the comfort of your cabin, with little ground transportation required.
Conversely, a two week ocean voyage can cover as many as fourteen European ports, giving you only the highlights to sample a variety of cultures. And for those who need not be entertained ashore, the transatlantic crossing has become a favorite with cruise enthusiasts to reach their destination is first class luxury and style. With all meals and shipboard entertainment included, the transatlantic experience costs little more than a business class airfare.
Hawaiian cruises are the prime destination in the Pacific, and you will find plenty of convenient departures from San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego. Your options range from one way ocean crossings with circle island tours, island tour only, and round trip passages.
Cruise enthusiasts that think they have seen it all will appreciate a thrilling voyage down the Nile with unbeatable prices to include all shore excursions with professionally guided tours. The Egypt experience is rich with culture and antiquity, unrivaled anywhere else in the world. And booking is a breeze with a near perfect climate to snap up year round holiday deals.
For most cruise ships, your decision making process will be determined by price. Check with online travel brokers and cruise ship specialty services for the most competitive prices and best bargain deals on last minute travel. If you break your cruise ship holiday total down by the day, you'll find tremendous savings over a land tour holiday where you must pay for meals and entertainment separately. The value, comfort and extent of what you get for your money makes cruising the best deal in town.
