At the last minute your "vacation of a life time" fails to come together.
What do you do?
Why not consider a last minute cruise.
Go on the Internet, enter the appropriate words, click and find unbelievable cruise deals to exotic places, at reasonable prices, in a short amount of time. Make a few needed preparations and then sit back and be prepared for an exciting, relaxing, enjoyable adventure.
Cruise ships offer a variety of activities as well as trips to ports of call. The beauty and majesty of the ships themselves will add to your comfort and enjoyment. The employees attend to your every need. The cabins are clean and spotless, elegant and spacious. Elevators and stairwells are strategically located throughout the ships for your convenience.
For added pleasure many of the ship's amenities include fitness centers, spas, pools, movie theaters and libraries. Various seminars, auctions, and games such as bingo and bridge are often available. Spas and casinos complete the offering of things to do.
On board, there are always beautiful ocean sights to see and delicious foods to eat. The rhythm of the ocean waves, the warm sun by day and the star-lit sky at night bring relaxation and tranquility to the mind and soul.
To add to these pleasures is the abundance and variety of food prepared by well-known chefs. Cruise ships offer "all you can eat" cuisine that is available around the clock. Numerous dining rooms are strategically located for convenience.
Making sure you have the right documents is one thing to consider before embarking upon this adventure. You must have a current passport before traveling to foreign ports. This is to make re-entry into the United States seamless as you go through customs and immigration. If your cruise originates and terminates from a port of call in the United States a passport is not necessary. When traveling to Mexico, Canada, and the Caribbean Islands, a birth certificate or primary ID is all that is required. Knowing that you have the right documents in hand will start your cruise on the right foot.
Once you have booked your cruise and you have the tickets in hand there are a few tips to consider from veteran cruise travelers. Know the price of what you want before you buy it. Sometimes you can buy it just as cheap at home. It is better to take fewer clothes. One suggested coordinating layered clothing since the days are warm and the nights are cool.
Carry prepaid phone cards to be used at the ports of call because Internet and phone use is very expensive aboard the ship. Be careful at the casinos and with alcoholic beverages. These are two major profit makers for the cruise line.
Three-night cruises can be found for as little as $169 and last minute cruises from $199 on the Internet. You can also contact a travel agent for great deals.
Don't let the opportunity to have the "vacation of a life time" pass you buy.
