The importance of tailored cruise recommendations
It’s one thing being recommended a cruise by a friend, family member or online forum user but you need to consider what’s important to you.
For example, your parents may have gone on a Caribbean cruise and loved it but it may not be suited to your needs and interests.
What considerations do you need to take into account when someone recommends a cruise to you?
People look for different things from cruise holidays. While one couple may like the idea of exploring romantic Mediterranean cities, another of the same age may just want to relax and soak up the sun in the Caribbean Islands.
Price is obviously a consideration for people booking their first cruise holiday. Even if you’ve been recommended a particular cruise company and destination, it’s worthwhile doing your research to see if the price quoted really offers the best value.
When considering any cruise recommendations you need to do your homework on the facilities available onboard. Does the cruise liner provide what you’re looking for or is it lacking a key facility that would adversely affect your holiday?
If you’re a first-time cruiser, the duration of your cruise is something to think long and hard about. Seasoned cruisers may recommend you go on a three week break but if you haven’t been on a cruise before it may be better to go on a shorter cruise until you know you like the experience.
The key to a successful first-time cruise is to do as much research as possible. As well as taking opinions on board from family, friends and colleagues, make sure you do your own independent research online to get the right cruise holiday for you.
