When planning a group vacation, it can be difficult to coordinate everyone’s schedules, destination preferences and activity level. Every year, more and more travelers are turning to cruises as the ideal way to relax and explore the world with their friends and family. Cruises are a perfect vacation for a group of travelers because they offer plenty of activities to satisfy all ages and activity levels, have unique cuisine options that appeal to all, and travel to many destinations all over the world.
Every year, cruise lines introduce the latest and greatest- be it new itineraries, new ports, new ships, or even new trends. Be on the lookout for what’s new with cruising in 2019.
Cruising draws tens of millions of people in each year, and it’s easy to see why. The convenience of visiting so many different places without the hassles of transportation or having to unpack and pack multiple times. Today, cruise lines have immersive itineraries that bring you closer to the local culture, on and off the ships. Travelers will have access to guest speakers, local food and authentic entertainment onboard. Small ships bring cruisers closer to the action on land, and cultural excursions immerse cruisers to the local way of living. To top it off, cruises travel to way more destinations than just the Caribbean. The Mediterranean, Asia, South Pacific, Africa and Antarctica are all popular cruise locations. There are cruise lines for everyone, even travelers who don’t like cruising.

This 3 night Bahamas cruise with Royal Caribbean was a great experience for a first time cruise that was recommended by my friends and coworkers. Before this cruise, my partner had never been on a cruise, or to the Bahamas. We wanted to take a cruise with a minimal amount of days for his first experience, and we were pleasantly surprised.
