Sea Legs: Cruising

Cruising is awesome!  If you have never gone on a cruise I encourage you to try it.  Save up and just go!  There are short cruises of 1 – 3 days that are usually financially manageable with a bit of saving.  Then larger, longer ones might last 7 – 12 days or longer, and cost more overall, but are often about the same price per night as the shorter excursions, and might also involve a plane flight to get there or get home.  Or both.  Save longer and plan for it, and you can probably make it happen.  If you can’t, then hopefully you can enjoy a cruise vicariously as I describe them here. Cruise lines are like floating communities with awesome food and entertainment on board, plus enjoyable ports of call along the route. The amazing staff are well trained, and pamper you, looking after your every need. Tip them well if you can, as they work long hard hours on your behalf to make your trip worthwhile. Take a bit of Dramamine for your first day or so at sea just in case you get sea sick, but you likely won’t need it for long as you develop your sea legs. And I have heard, the larger the ship, the smoother the ride. I can’t wait to try another cruise. Clink . . . clink . . . clink! Time to start saving those pennies. Well, OK, those dollars, and beyond, but they don’t make such a pleasing clinking sound when put in the jar or piggy bank do they?  Look up several Cruise Lines and check out their ‘Drop and Go’ offerings and sales. Put it on your bucket list.  You will love it.  Bon Voyage!
