One of the most appealing aspects of planning a trip to North America is the diversity in landscape, climate and culture from city to city and state to state.
At TravelManagers, we want to share our expertise with you to make planning your trip that little bit easier. We’re going to let you in on a secret – an affordable, family friendly and relaxing way to explore North America is on a cruise.
There are three elements that make a cruise top of our list when considering exploring a large continent such as North America – value, variety and convenience.
Cruising offers great value for money if you’re on a budget or travelling as a family. Your food, entertainment, travel and accommodation costs are all covered, all you have to do is turn up and explore.
On a ‘traditional’ holiday, exploring different states and cities in North America can often mean a lot of driving. While sometimes it’s great to get out on the open road, costs like petrol, rental hire and insurance can add up. A cruise will get you to your destination with no stress and a capped cost.
A cruise can take you to a variety of destinations on one trip. You can explore the continent’s coastline at leisurely pace and, depending on the length of your trip, see up to five different destinations. Whether it’s exploring ‘Old Quebec’ in Canada and taking in the city lights of New York on the East Coast, or making your way from Vancouver to cosmopolitan San Francisco on the West Coast, a cruise will get you there in style and with minimal fuss.
A cruise also offers a range of entertainment options on board. If you’re travelling as a family, it’s likely that there will be an activity to please everyone.
Finally, a cruise offers convenience. You only have to unpack once and you don’t have to rush around from place to place – the destination comes to you. You can take your time to explore your surroundings without checking in and out of hotels, boarding internal flights or hiring a rental car – now that’s real luxury!
If you’re interested in exploring a North American cruise, but not sure where to start, a Personal Travel Manager will be able to advise you on the best cruise route to suit your travel interests and budget. http://www.travelmanagers.com.au/ptm-search/
