Tips to Picking the Right Itinerary-
Oh Yes, the itinerary truly matters! Even on a Caribbean cruise, itineraries vary tremendously and there are two major variables. One is the size of the ship and the other is the actual ports themselves.
If you have chosen a large ship for your vacation, chances are that there’s a plethora of on-board activities that exist and can potentially entertain you 24/7. If your boat features an ice-skating rink, a rock climbing wall, a surfing wav...e, a golf simulator, miniature golf, a boardwalk, movie theater, planetarium, shopping atriums or other on-board diversions, you’re going to want to have time to truly enjoy those features. Therefore, your itinerary might feature 3 or 4 days “at-sea” out of a 7-day itinerary. In this case, the ship is a really big part of your vacation and worth exploring.
Alternatively, if you’ve chosen a smaller ship (the upscale lines tend to be the smallest), your ship will be able to dock at diverse, quiet harbors where the attractions on land are the main focus. The British Virgin Islands, St. Barts, St. Lucia and the Dominica might be included. If you’re sailing the Mediterranean, you might stop in at Portofino, for example, or other ports where the big ships simply cannot go.
It’s essential that we work together to figure out which approach works best for you and your family/friends, particularly if this is your very first cruise!
