Cruising Questions & Answers

Q: Is Cruising Affordable and a Good Vacation Value?
A: Cruising is the best vacation value! There are cruise vacations to suit every budget. Your cruise fare includes all meals, your stateroom, onboard activities and entertainment, plus transportation from port to port. You’ll know what your vacation will end up costing you before you go. (Typically, your only extra expenses will be drinks, optional shore excursions, and personal services such as massage or hairstyling.)


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.

Norway Cruising – Outshines Alaska

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.


Stockholm Sweden

While staying in a Best Western in Stockholm, Sweden, I pondered the difference from our culture to theirs.  Wonderful examples of the differences were in my room.  Missing were the common themed prints from American hotels and in their place was a fancy painting with a wild light wrapped around it.  Additionally I found a mini-library, stocked with over thirty books.  Can you image waking up and have thirty library books in your very room?  Not lacking modern comforts, the room also had a DVD player and television.   Visit Stockholm and the Best Western.  I highly recommend it!


Norwegian Cruise Line

Norwegian Cruise Lines are 4.5 star rated which places them nicely between Carnival Cruise Line (4 star) and a number of five star lines.  Cruisers enjoy dining whenever they want on Norwegian at the abundant dining facilities all over the ship!  For a little bit more money you can dine in their specialty restaurant, which other cruisers report is fantastic. This line is also known to be great for kids and adults, with cruises that go to Hawaii and all around the world!
