Soaking up that Florida sunshine
I recently spent 6 days in Fort Lauderdale Florida attending an event called Cruise360 where I was able to get up close and personal with a bunch of cruise lines! I also learned valuable information about many different destinations and suppliers of all sorts. Here are some of my favourite things that I learned:
ROYAL CARIBBEAN LINE is my go to for a high quality, high energy experience. These family friendly cruises feature the best entertainment at sea – many of their ships have 4 stages for shows on ice, water, air and of course a standard stage. Workers in the kids club have their CPR and a 4 year childcare degree. The ships also have so many activities to do onboard.
PONANT CRUISES is a French line featuring 12 small luxury ships with another coming in 2021. This new ship will have the Blue Eye lounge which is a multi-sensory lounge at the bottom of the ship under the water. You can watch all the underwater sea life. It looks very neat.
CRYSTAL CRUISES has some great Yacht expedition cruises available around the world; some include Butlers, a 3 man submarine and a speedboat.
CARNIVAL is known as the “Fun Ships”. They are a great choice for relaxed extraverts looking to have a great time. With 14 home ports around the world Carnival is one of the easiest cruise lines to access.
SCENIC LUXURY RIVER CRUISES offers an “all inclusive” experience with meals, beverages, excursions and more included in the cost. Special exclusive events like dinner in Vatican City or a Vienna Concert could be included on select sailings. You’ll experience locally sourced gourmet meals, be able to use complimentary bikes in the ports and every stateroom has a butler!
NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE is building new ships! The Encore will be ready in 2019 and Leonardo later in 2021. These new ships will be more modern than previous ships. NCL is also building a new terminal in Miami which should be opening in 2021.
ACCESSIBLE TRAVEL-for those of all types of needs (ex. food allergies, physical disabilities, any other sort of special needs). There are so many different resorts and cruise ships that accommodate those with any sort of special needs. Ask me if you have any questions or need for special accommodations that you may need for your vacations.
GROUPS! Are you a part of a group that would be interested in travelling together? Cruises are a perfect fit for ANY type of group. Whether you are a part of a church group, a sports team, want to plan a reunion, are interested in food and wine or anything else, I can help you build the best group gathering and vacation you ever dreamed of!
Interested in cruising? I would love to chat with you about my experiences and help you find your ideal ship! You can call me at 306-934-3400 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are few pictures from the ship inspections that I did.
