I was thinking of taking my first cruise. Anyone know of any great destinations or cruise lines?
I don’t want a basic trip to Mexico, a family Disney cruise or any cruises that stop anywhere in the US. Any suggestions?
I have been on seven cruises and have found Princess and Celebrity to be the best cruise lines. They offer a wide variety of activites and excursions, high-tea in the afternoon is lovely, amazing food and restaurants, great staff, friendly cruisers, not too expensive, luxurious spas, comfy staterooms, and no rowdy customers.
I do not suggest chosing Carnival, as they are the complete opposite of what I have just described.
As for not stopping in the US, there are many options around the world for each cruise line. There are Alaskan cruises (offered only in the spring/summer for obvious reasons), European cruises, Scandanavian, and Mediterranean.
A great option is a Trans-atlantic cruise! These cruises are offered once a year, often in the spring, when the cruise companies want to move their ships to Europe to begin the European Cruise season. They often offer great prices, and often stop in Bermuda and end in places such as England, France, Denmark or Portugal.
Good luck in chosing your cruise! I hope I was able to help!
