Cruise booking tips & planning advice for your next vacation

The ease and simplicity of life on a cruise ship are unbeatable. Eat dinner at a different world-class restaurant every night. Pamper yourself at the luxurious onboard spa or make new friends at the poolside bar. There’s nothing to clean up after, no busy schedules to keep track of, and no rush to life’s next big activity. 

When you’re planning your cruise, you’ll want to think about things like staterooms and suite classes. What kind of amenities and perks matter most to you? You might decide an Infinite Veranda is a must, whereas your friend may want a room close to the spa for easy access to the onboard gym.
