If you'd like to visit multiple countries but only unpack once, go island hopping without having to fly between islands or see fjords that can only be reached by boat, then an Ocean Cruise may be the ideal travel style for you.
A cruise ship, which includes your accommodation, all meals, a variety of beverages and several amenities and onboard entertainment, will take you to ports of call along the route. You'll have the opportunity to explore each destination for a few hours or a full day where an overnight stay is included. Your ship will then take you to the next destination without you having to unpack and repack each time.
Ships range in size, quality of service and included amenities, so these will need to be considered when choosing which cruise line to travel with. If you'd like to see more of a destination and have less on board time, if waiting in line to get on or off the ship does not appeal to you, then a smaller cruise ship is ideal. If you're travelling with family or a large group of friends or with a special interest group, then a larger ship with more onboard amenities and entertainment may be the ticket.
Whether you're travelling alone, with your mum, daughter, partner, family, friend(s) or a large group, if an Ocean Cruise is your ideal travel style, I can help arrange everything you need for your cruise vacation, including pre- and post-cruise accommodations. Here are a few Ocean Cruises to bucket list destinations that I've arranged with discounted rates on select cabins exclusive to Kaz Custom Travel clients.
