Cruise Guide

Cruise Guide


Today's cruise ships are floating resorts which offers everything you would expect in a five star resort. Plenty of rooms, fine dining, dazzling entertainment and activities galore. It'll probably take you two or three days just to discover what's on board. Most cruise ships have a daily newsletter with news headlines, selected stock quotes and sports scores. You can call someone on shore through the ship's radio operator while at sea. And you can make phone calls from most ports of call.

To eliminate the incidence of motion discomfort, there are stabilizers on modern ships, advance availability of accurate weather information, preventative medications with fully-equipped medical facility and staff (except for some smaller vessels operating in coastal waters) to handle almost any emergency on board. 

Entertainments day and night


On any cruise vacation, the entertainment is a part of cruising. You can go for a swim, stretch out in the sauna or work out in the gym. You can see a feature movie, attend lectures by renowned experts, play backgammon or bridge.

You can be yourself and lie back on a lounge chair, breath in the sea air, soak up the sun, read good books or watch the ever-changing view. Or join in exercise classes, dance classes, sports contests and other organized deck activities. Perhaps you can practice your tennis strokes, drive golf balls, shoot some skeet or basketballs. 

There's dancing, live entertainment in the nightclubs, discos and lounges. Feature films. And parties with all your new friends. Most cruise ships even have casinos. 

There are many special events, like the Captains Cocktail Party, Passenger Entertainment Night, the Masquerade Party, the Midnight Buffet. You can also celebrate your own "special" day. Most cruise lines will even treat you to a complimentary cake and chorus of "Happy Whatever" to honor the occasion. 
The varieties are limitless and all kinds of people take cruises of all ages, singles, couples and families.

Single


Cruising is ideal for people traveling alone. Because it's so easy to meet other people. In fact, most ships have parties just for singles--early on, so you can start to be involved right away. Most ships also have single cabins as well as single rates for double staterooms. In many cases, a cruise line will even find you a roommate to share a double if you ask them.

Couples


Cruising creates an atmosphere that's just right for romance, cozy dinners for two, strolling on deck at sunset, dancing the night away and so much more to remember forever.

Families and kids


25% of cruise vacations are booked by families with children. Most cruise lines make a special point of providing supervised activities for youngsters. The cruise staff will help keep them busy and entertained. Children generally travel at a reduced rate.

Dining at Cruise Ships


You'll find a varied selection of entrees ( appetizers, salads, soups, vegetables and desserts too) every time you sit down. And there's virtually no limit on what or how much you can order. You can choose "low cal" or "fitness" menu selections that are just as tempting as the regular menus. Most cruise ships can accommodate salt-free, low-carbohydrate, Kosher, or other diet preferences. However, this request must be made in advance.
Some cruise ships' dining rooms can accommodate all passengers in one "seating". But, most ships have two seating which differ only by time. To choose, just decide whether you prefer to dine early or later than request your preference when you book.

Non-smoking areas


Today, virtually all cruise ships have smoking and non-smoking table and/or sections in the dining rooms and lounges. If you want your dinning table in a non-smoking area, just tell your DTW Consultant. On board, in "open-seating" situations, you can advise your waiter or the maitre d'.

There are numerous cruise ships, windjammers, and clipper ships cruising at all times of the year. A cruise ship is a great place to make new friends, because everyone's so friendly. The atmosphere is cordial, relaxed. And you'll have all kinds of things in common to talk about. You'll never be bored.

Laundry services 


Almost all cruise ships have laundry facilities and a great many provide dry-cleaning services. There is, however, an additional charge for professional laundry and dry-cleaning services. Most ships also have self-service launderettes.
