Selecting Cruises: How Long Should You Go For?, Brighton, New York

Cruises offer a one-of-a-kind vacation. You’ll have the opportunity to visit many new places with relaxing and luxurious breaks in between while you’re at sea. Cruises can vary in length from two days to months. DiMaria Travel Agency has booked all types of vacation packages for their clients in Rochester, NY. They have found one of the first major decisions you’ll need to make is how long you’d like your cruise to be.

They have shared some questions to ask yourself regarding cruises to help you decide on the right amount of time:

  • Availability: How much time you have available to spend on vacation is the first factor to consider. Many people have earned time off from work or are retired and want to spend a couple of weeks, or even months, at sea. Others may just have a long weekend free, so they need a shorter cruise. If you’ll need to travel to the ports of departure and arrival, be sure to factor in that time as well.
  • cruisesDesired Time: First-time cruisers may be surprised to find most of their time is spent at sea on the ship. When you visit ports of call, you’ll have most of the day to explore, but between those, you’ll have a lot of time to kill on the ship. It’s a unique type of vacation because you can relax at the pool, enjoy any offered entertainment, such as shows or casinos, and indulge in great food. If you enjoy that slow pace, you may like a longer trip. If you easily get cabin fever, a shorter one may be right for you.
  • Budget: Consider how much you would like to spend on your trip. Depending on the lavishness of the package you choose, the trip can cost anywhere from $30 to hundreds of dollars per night. Give your travel agent your budget and any requirements you have. The more flexible you are, the better the travel deals they’ll be able to find for you. For example, if you’re willing to travel in the off-season to a certain destination, you may be able to afford a much longer cruise.

The best way to find the right cruise is to work with a travel consultant. DiMaria Travel Agency has the connections to help you find the vacation packages that fit your budget and your goals.
