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.
One of our partners, Crystal Cruises, has been one of the top names in luxury cruising since its inception, claiming more “World’s Best” awards than any other travel and leisure provider in history. Crystal Cruises has decided to expand its offerings and bring the same standards to the river cruises market, and if the company’s most recent announcement is any indicator, they have already surpassed their own expectations.
