Is it your first time taking a cruise? We are often asked what is the best cruise line for first time cruisers but to answer that, there are a few things to consider.  Who are you travelling with? The entire family, a group of friends, as a couple or solo? 


Cruise lines have really upped their game when it comes to onboard experiences. Many times, you will find Broadway-style shows, comedy clubs, wine tastings and group meet-ups. This is all on top of spa experiences and endless dining options. Children’s clubs and babysitting services are also available. Consider what type of entertainment will ensure everyone you are travelling with has something that will interest them.


A common concern of first-time cruisers is sea sickness. Larger ships have tremendous stabilizer that minimize motion. If you are still concerned, try getting a cabin towards the center of the ship on a lower level to help minimize any motion you may feel. You can also pick a calmer time of year to sail like the Caribbean during the winter months or Mediterranean during the summer.


Top 3 questions for those who are thinking about trying a cruise for their next vacation:

1.     Do you want to visit multiple destinations on your vacation?

2.     Do you like meeting new people from around the world?

3.     Are you a foodie who likes to experience different cuisines while on vacation?


If you’ve answered yes to any or all of these questions, cruising may just be the perfect experience for you!
