Cruising Questions & Answers

Q: Is Cruising Affordable and a Good Vacation Value?

South America Cruising – Around the Tip

When cruising South America, you have two options in cruising the coast of Chile. The first option is to depart from Buenos Aires, Argentina, and dock at Valparaiso, Chile.  From Valparaiso the trip to Santiago is approximately forty-five (45) minutes to one and half (1-1/2) hours over the mountains. The second option is the reverse and you will see the Chilean Fjords, Argentina, and parts of Brazil. Using frequent flyer points will save you on either of these cruises.

Looking for a fantastic cruise?  I recommend to almost everyone cruising the beautiful country of Norway.  This is simply one of the greatest cruises I have sailed.  I was fortunate to sail on the six-star Regent Cruise Line.   We departed from Copenhagen, sailing all the way up the west coast of Norway to the most northern part of Europe which is North Cape.  In my opinion, cruising Norway outshines even an Alaskan Cruise.

Cruising Italy – One Not To Be Missed

When cruising to Rome, Italy, I recommend my clients stay at least one day in this wonderful city. Sights including the Catacombs, Coliseum, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps are known worldwide and are just a few of the magnificent sites in Rome. Another great city to visit is Civitavecchia, located two hours north of Rome. Here’s my best tip when planning a cruise that includes Rome: Schedule your Rome sightseeing before or after the cruise. This way you don’t have to rush to visit all of the amazing parts of this fabulous city. This is truly one not to be missed!
