Cruise Search

Vockings - Answered a Question by O' Neill (10 Nov 08 20:50)

Carribean is a good choice for a first cruise because the sea is so calm and you have a different port of call nearly every day.Which cruiseline you choose depends on whether you like freestyle dining,buffet dining,silver service dining, casual wear on an evening or tuxedo and formal attire. It depends on whether you prefer a huge,glitzy resort ship with loads to do or a more traditional smaller ship, child-free or child-friendly,is your budget £800 per person for two weeks(Ocean Village,Thomson,Island,Costa,MSC etc)or £1200+(P&O,Princess,RCI,Carnival,Celebrity) etc etc.Everyone is different and the cruise lines all cater for different sectors of the market with different budgets in mind.Get some brochures,speak to an independent travel agent(not First Choice as they push Island) or cruise specialist,get a personal recommendation from a friend and watch some of the promotional DVDs to get an idea of whats out there!

I always have reservations on recommending a cruise as what we like might not be what others are happy with. A good time to go Caribbean is Jan to March enjoy the warmth there and save on your gas and electric back home. We have been there in January/February/March and next year we will be there in April. The temps are usually 70 to 80 degrees, but sometimes a bit cooler for sunbathing on the ship when it is at sea.

Too many imponderables to say one or the other, we know nothing about you, your age, what your budget is, your likes and dislikes, how long a cruise you want, etc.etc. Get some cruise brochures and spend some time looking at them so that you have some idea about what is out there. Sorry to be so negative to someone we should be encouraging but..... Neil.
