If you have never done this in your life time, it is now time to start planning to do it. Cruising might be one of the funniest adventures one can embark on. And it takes planning to make sure that it is done right. There are so many different companies that provided cruises, you are bound to find a theme that is right for you. From children friendly to adult only cruises, there is one to fit your life style.
In my opinion there are several factors that you need to take into accountability. From cost to ship size to food accommodations to entertainment to destinations, the choices are vast. Once you start making the choices then you can make the choices that best fit you.
I think for me the first and foremost is going to be the destinations. I would base purchasing a cruise based on the ports that the cruise is going to stop in. I also take into account the fact that some of the posts might not be open due to civil unrest or weather issues.
My next feature that I look for is adult entertainment. I for one am not much for a cruise that has a ton of children on it. I like it even better if there is seperated facilities for the adults. This way if I want to get in some peaceful rest, I typically can in the adult pools or hot tubs.
Another feature for me is the ship size. I like the bigger ships typically because they have more to do on them than the smaller ones. Casinos tend to be larger and restaurants seem to have better food. The entertainment and night life seem to be more vast on the bigger ships also.
Cruising is what you make of it. If you want to spend a lot of time on the water and little time in ports, they have those types of cruises too. It is all based on what you are looking for today.
