Many people look forward to spring breaks, as they can finally get a chance to unwind from their daily responsibilities and go on a well-deserved vacation. Whether you are a college student looking for some fun, a mom looking for a way to relax in a family-friendly, supervised environment, or a couple looking for a romantic vacation, there is a perfect type of cruise for you.
Cruises often include many onboard attractions, like water slides and bumper cars, which is why they are very popular with families. However, to make the most of it, do some research in advance – some cruises are designed to cater to families and kids specifically. For example, you can never go wrong with Disney cruises, as they are all about fun for all ages. Just make sure to book early so you can get the best accommodation for your family, ensure that your child gets to enjoy some limited-space children events, and of course, get family discounts.
For college students
Going on a cruise can be a great way to spend your spring break, as you can find more than a few cruises catering to your generation. They usually have a strong emphasis on delicious food, plenty of exciting activities on board, and, of course, more than a few spots for taking Instagram-worthy pictures. However, there are a few things you’d need to check beforehand. For example, some cruises require you to be 21 in order to travel on your own and drink alcohol – and you can’t bring your own alcohol. So, if drinking is a part of your expectations, make sure to get familiar with the policies. As for the budget, many cruises offer group discounts, so if you and your friends want to travel together, make sure to ask the agency about your options. Also, think about the destination– some of the most popular destinations for college students are Ibiza, the Bahamas, and the Caribbean, all known for lots of entertainment options and fun bars.
For adults avoiding kids
If you want to avoid kids and party people, you might need to do a bit more planning. For example, expensive and exotic cruises are more likely to be free of families and college students, as they usually look for simpler entertainment and more affordable deals. Also, river cruises that focus on cultural activities in historic destinations are probably not going to have many kids, so an exciting barge holiday in France might be the perfect choice for you. Moreover, if you have more free time, choose a cruise that lasts beyond the spring break, since college students would not have enough time for those. Finally, if you want to make sure to avoid anybody under the age of 18, there are adults-only cruises too, like Viking Ocean Cruises or the Virgin Voyages.
For nature lovers
If you want to go on a cruise that can help you recharge your batteries and reconnect with nature, rest assured that there are plenty of suitable choices. For example, you can go on a cruise to Alaska and enjoy nature-focused activities, like bear spotting, hiking on glaciers, and kayaking. Or, you can also go on a cruise to Antarctica and take photos of hundreds of thousands of penguins as well as a few magnificent whales. It would definitely be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Just don’t forget to bring your camera with you since there would be more than a few gorgeous sceneries to take photos of.
Cruises offer you a unique way to travel the world, make friends, have plenty of fun, and, of course, relax. So, no matter what kind of traveler you are and what your budget is, with some research and planning, you are bound to find a cruise that can fit all your needs and wishes.
