Confused About What Cruise Line To Select

Stop Losing Sleep - Seek Advice of Specialist

Seek the advice of a trusted cruise specialist to select a cruise line

Every day we make choices.  Coke or Pepsi?  Coffee or Tea?  Chips or Fries?  The list goes on. Sometimes making these decisions introduces stress into our lives.  One of the benefits of taking a vacation is to get away from daily stress.  We'll guide you through the selection process.

 Look Under the Covers to Narrow Selection
You've seen their commercials; you've heard their slogans.   Even though you've never sailed before, I bet you can name these top selling cruise lines.
In case you can't, they are Carnival Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean International, and Norwegian Cruise Line (top to bottom).
Each cruise line has a different personality and appeals to different demographics.  In most cases, any of these three lines would be an excellent choice for your first cruise.
However, you will definitely need to know differences to set proper expectations.

Determine What is Important to You

As a cruise specialist, the majority of my time is spent asking questions and listening to your responses.  Those answers in turn help to narrow the field of cruise sailings to a manageable short list.  Example:  If you don't want to go on a cruise where there are children, you probably won't want to book a cruise on Carnival during Spring Break.

From there, factors outside our control may further narrow the selection (for example, a particular cabin type could be sold out).
