If you still haven’t decided what to do on your next travel and leisure vacation, you might want to consider taking a cruise. One reason why cruising is a good option is because it doesn’t just give you rich bits of information about each destination-it also offers you a semblance of escape with the turquoise waters and the grandiose views you can enjoy at any point during the trip.
However, cruising has always come off as an expensive option, but what most travelers do not know is that the rates are not really that far when compared to other types of travels. To help you out, we’ve narrowed it down to the 5 best destinations and provided a cost estimate so you can also have an idea how much money you’ll shell out for these all inclusive vacations.
5 Best Cruise Destinations
Starting at $129, you won’t run out of beautiful things to see during the whole trip. The islands are made up of different reefs, cays, and even mini-islands that will just leave you in awe. If you also feel like you’ve already had your fill of nature tripping, you may try exploring the other side of the island group-some spots in the Caribbean, specifically Aruba, are known for their famous casinos.
If you’re looking for an adventure that will satisfy the connoisseur in you, try booking a cruise destination that includes Europe and/or the Mediterranean. With $239 a night, you can enjoy cruising in towns that are rich in history. You also have a chance to appreciate your trip a day at a time, because cruise ships in this route usually have one stop over per day. Don’t even get us started about the food-you’ll be amazed by how much you can get for the amount you’ll usually spend on one European meal back at home. Just a piece of advice though, with its low cost and increasing popularity, it will be best to book your trips at least 6 months in advance!
One of the most underrated places to travel is Alaska. Who would think that a place that’s mostly made up of ice, ice, and more ice would offer something cruise-worthy? Everyone who hasn’t been there, apparently. However, it’s amazing to note that anyone who has actually traveled there rarely ever has negative feedback about the trip. It must be because the picturesque restaurants, the splendid icecaps, and the exhilarating view all in all are really worth seeing. All this for $349 a night-a rate that is pretty low compared to other non-cruise all inclusive vacations!
If you are up for an exotic adventure, then you should definitely cruise to the Hawaiian Islands. More than just its attractive beaches, the whole experience will truly make you believe that you are actually in paradise. What is even better about this destination is that it offers more than just good sights to see. The tourists in Hawaii can opt to participate in different beach activities such as surfing or paragliding. There is also a lot more to see than the beautiful beaches-you can rent a car that will take you to volcanoes, waterfalls, and even farmlands. With all these, $739 a night is really worth it, don’t you think?
Starting at affordable rates from $279 per night, you’ll experience a very outlandish trip that you won’t soon forget. It’s one thing to see the country featured in travel magazines or in one of your local cable shows, and it’s another to actually be there and experience the extraordinary activities both countries have to offer. Experience feeding the regions native animals that you only get to see on TV such as kangaroos and koala bears, or indulge in your appetite for seafood in the numerous seaside restaurants there. If you’re the daredevil type, you can even try riding the back of the camel to explore the Australian Outback.
So that makes our initial list. You see, just because cruising is considered a luxury, it doesn’t mean you can’t afford it! All inclusive vacations are not really hard to come by, all it really takes is research, and of course, a sense of adventure!
