How to Pick Your Next Cruise to Go On in 2017

Cruises are a perfect way to unwind, relax, and take the time to enjoy yourself, whether you’re traveling alone, with your spouse, or with your family. But picking a cruise can be hard, especially with the countless choices available in the ever-growing cruise line industry. How should you pick your next cruise to go on in 2017? This handy guide will help you decide when, where, and what type of cruise is best for you this year!

What Do You Want from a Cruise

Before you pick out when to go or even what cruise line to consider, you need to stop and think about what you want from your next cruise. Do you want a relaxing, low-key getaway to help you unwind after months of hard work? Do you want an exciting, fun-loving cruise full of dancing, music and drinks? Are you looking for a family-friendly vacation that everyone can enjoy? There are so many types of cruises out there, you’ll need to decide what you’re looking for to narrow things down.

Who Will Be Going

You can’t figure out things like budget or travel dates until you know who is going to be on the cruise! Who are you planning on going with? Are you planning on traveling alone? With your spouse? With your family? With a friend or friends? The more people are going, the trickier planning may be, especially if you aren’t traveling solely with family—but this is why planning a few months in ahead is recommended.

When You Want to Go—or Can Go

If you’re looking to save money, you should consider going during what insiders call the “shoulder season,” which is the spring and the fall when less people book cruises. Cruise lines will often offer notable discounts for people who book during these months, which has something to keep in mind if you are on a tighter budget, are traveling with family, or simply don’t want to go during the busy season.

Your Budget

The budget is probably the most important aspect of picking your next cruise. After all, if you can’t afford it, then you certainly can’t go! Thankfully, there are options for just about any budget you have, ranging from modest to extravagant. If you are on a tighter budget, in addition to considering dates in the shoulder season, you should look for cruises that offer package deals for things like food, drinks and internet; package deals are usually money-savers in the long run, since paying a fixed price of something like $100 for Wi-Fi access on a 5 day cruise is a lot cheaper than paying 75 cents for each minute of internet use!

Want Something New?

Every year, cruise lines are trying new and exciting things to offer different experiences to their passengers. Many cruise lines are offering themed trips that focus on everything from historical architecture, cultural monuments, ancient cities, and so much more. If you’re looking for something new to try on your next cruise, why not pick 2017 to do it?
