We love the idea of traveling during Christmas time, even though some people are pretty much dead set against it. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to go ahead and have a good time at Christmas, even though a lot of people assume that the time you have is sacred and off limits. Why is that? Christmas should be a time where you spend it however you want, with whoever you want. There’s nothing like being able to rest and enjoy yourself.
Yet do you really want to do the hotel shuffle again? That can get a little old. If you really want to do something fun, it’s time to think about a Christmas cruise. OK, you might be reading this and thinking that there are still several months before Christmas, so how can we even start talking about a cruise? The truth of the matter is that cruises matter all the time, and the longer you schedule your cruise in advance, the more streamlined it will really be. When it comes to something like traveling during the holidays, you really don’t want to wait till the last minute. All that will cause is for you to end up paying a lot more than you really should, and who really wants to do that?
That’s what we thought.
There are a lot of different Christmas time cruises to choose from, and the one you want will depend on…well, your actual wants and desires. Do you want to have more of a freeform experience, or do you really need something that’s more regimented and scheduled in order to have a good time? Do you want a ship that has a lot of amenities, or can you deal with more of a barebones experience that just lets you enjoy time out at sea with a good book? The prices are going to range a bit, but you’ll save money by traveling with a friend. This is because you will avoid having to pay single occupancy rates, or dealing with having a random roommate assigned to you. There’s nothing worse than having to deal with that, so make sure that you really do plan ahead of time to get things done.
Keep in mind that the inclusive rates you see on cruises often don’t include all of the airfare. Even if they do, it’s only the airfare to actually fly to the destination itself — if you live in an area where you’d have to make two flights, you can bet that you’re going to pay for at least one of them.
Now is the perfect time to think about planning your Christmas cruise — why not get started today?
