Cruise vacations have grown in popularity because of the excellent value and the expanded choices now available to you. The major cruise lines have added more new modern super-ships and more home ports and destinations to choose from. Mixing a few days at the home port cities followed by a fun cruise vacation provides for an awesome vacation of land and sea. Visit VoyageMonkey.com Travel for the best cruise vacations, hotel accommodations, flights and car rentals.
Home port cities to spend a few days include Miami, New Orleans, New York, San Juan Puerto Rico, Seattle, San Francisco, LA, and San Diego. Imagine a couple days of San Francisco restaurants, New Orleans Jazz clubs, or New York shopping & Broadway shows followed by a spectacular cruise filled with daily entertainment, casinos, pampering and excellent food. You can see a great show every night, listen to good music, and dine and dance the night away. Most ships are equipped with world-class spas so you can pamper yourself. You get to visit wonderful ports of call without packing and un-packing, and are provided many daily fun filled activities to choose from.
Some of the fabulous ports of call include Aruba, Jamaica, Bahamas, Grand Cayman, Alaska, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, the Panama Canal, and many more. Winter time is a popular time to cruise as many of these places are warm and sunny during the winter months and the ocean water temperature remains close to 80 degrees, making it perfect for all kinds of water sports. Beach goers can swim and sun bath keeping up their tans. Families have found the convenience of having their group gather over the holidays and enjoy Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s eve on a cruise ship and leaving all the cooking and cleaning behind. VoyageMonkey.com travel staff have enjoyed many a Thanksgiving turkey dinner on a cruise ship. We highly recommend it.
Because of all the competition among the cruise lines, the food on most cruise ships has become really super good over the years. Also, the prices have become very competitive. The cruise lines make much of their profit after you are on board the ship, on drinks, gambling, shore excursions, and extras. So they need to fill all the cabins and sail with a full ship. Accordingly, the price of a cruise per person per day can be as low as $100 dollars per day. Where can you get accommodations and all your meals for less than $100 per day? There are a few retired people out there that have taken up living full time on a cruise ship. For $100 per day, that works out to $36,500 per year. Even if you go with more luxurious accommodations for say $200 per day, you are still getting a deal.
Popular cruise lines include Royal Caribbean, Princess, Carnival, Crystal, Disney, Norwegian, and Holland America. VoyageMonkey.com Travel knows these cruise lines well and can assist you in booking the best accommodations available for the best price.
