Cruise - The Perfect Get-away

Why Take a Cruise Vacation?

Take a cruise for the free time of your life!
  • Fun for all ages. Whether you're traveling alone, with a partner, as a family, or in a group, cruising offers something for everyone. Within steps of your cabin you'll find a fabulous choice of shipboard activities, dining pleasures and entertainment.

  • Affordable. The one price includes transfers, accommodations, meals and entertainment. No surprises or hidden charges. Cruise lines are building new ships as fast as possible to keep up with growing demand, increasing the number of cruise options and keeping prices low.

  • Mobility. Cruises offer destinations that span the globe and shore excursions that let you explore each port of call on your own or with others.  And if the weather is bad, the ship will go somewhere else!

  • Carefree.  You can wave goodbye to hassles and hurry, to telephones, cars, to anxious connections and schedules.

  • Customize your vacation by choosing from a wide variety of shore excursions - or just stay on the boat the entire time.

  • Unpack your suitcase only once. Relax or play as the spirit moves you. With the cruise experience - like no other travel experience - you can visit many ports of call hassle-free.
