Pick the right cruise for you
We have several experts in cruising in our office who can help you pick the right cruise. Our Travel Agents can tell you how to cruise, what time of the year to cruise which area of the world and which cruise line has the best cruise for the area you want to cruise. Alaska cruise, Caribbean Cruise, River Cruising, or how about a Panama Canal cruise?
Princess Cruise Line
Princess Cruises attracts a widespread passenger base, but as its ships vary so widely in style and services, choosing carefully is a good idea. The large and mid-range ships attract broad, multigenerational demographics -- everyone from solo travelers to family groups will find something they like.
Because it's more exotically minded, Pacific Princess caters to more mature travelers who want longer itineraries, more offbeat ports of call and fewer family-friendly elements
For the most part, Royal Caribbean ships that sail from the United States attract a wide variety of North American passengers, mostly between the ages of 30 and 55 on the seven-night and shorter cruises, and 50 and over on cruises longer than seven nights. Cruises from the U.K. -- as well as Mediterranean, Asia and Australia cruises -- attract a significant number of locals, as well as Royal Caribbean's usual North Americans. Seven-night and shorter cruises are also popular with families, especially during American school vacation periods, when the ships will often be filled to every upper berth. Mariner of the Seas, Quantum of the Seas and Ovation of the Seas are aimed squarely at the Asian market, so passengers will be from Asia and, to a lesser extent, Australia.
Norwegian Cruise Lines
The crowd is diverse -- primarily American -- ranging in age from young families to older folks, as well as a good many cruisers with disabilities. Norwegian has cultivated a broad appeal, which means its ships are oriented to both families and couples.
Holland America has long had a reputation for catering to a well-heeled but somewhat traditionally minded crowd. Perhaps that's due to the line's insistence on maintaining its traditions with elegant afternoon tea, ballroom dancing, tennis courts and timeless decor throughout the fleet. An emphasis on worldwide, often lengthy, itineraries also attracts an older crowd with the time and money for these extended voyages. But standard modern features like Internet cafes and alternative restaurants, coupled with superb kids facilities (Club HAL) and a growing entertainment lineup do entice younger passengers and families alike. Many are onboard as part of multigenerational groups. Don't expect to see lots of children until the summer season, unless you're sailing on a shorter itinerary or during a holiday.
Carnival Cruise Line
The World's largest cruise line. passengers are a broad crisscross of Americans; according to Carnival, 30 percent of its passengers are under 35, 40 percent are between 35 and 55, and 30 percent are over 55
Disney Cruise Lines
The majority of fellow passengers are families and multi-generational reunions due to the extensive activities and options available to children, teens and adults. However, you'll also find a sprinkling of honeymooners and couples without children -- especially on Alaska itineraries -- who appreciate the over-sized staterooms and underutilized adults-only areas.
