Themed Cruises: A Cruise For Everyone
Cruises have always been a popular choice for those in need of a little sun and sea, of course, but as the array of vessels, themes and destinations have increased in recent years, so has interest in cruising.
These days, there truly is a cruise for everyone, whether you’re into music, history, politics or anything, really. Want to cruise with fellow “Twilight” fans to Forks, Wash.? There’s a cruise for that. Want to lose weight with “The Biggest Loser” star Jillian Michaels while you voyage to the Bahamas? There’s a cruise for that. Basically, if it’s bordered by water, you can cruise there.
Because of the vast array of options, a cruise can easily be your elusive “perfect vacation” — and one that may even be less expensive than you think. Once a luxury to a small portion of the population, cruises have now become more affordable: With established all-inclusive rates that include accommodations, dining, entertainment, activities and parties, cruises can cost as little as $50 to $75 a day per person (especially in the least expensive time of year, from mid-August to late December.)
That’s not to say one bill covers all: Additional costs can include airfare, alcohol, gratuities, shore activities, some dining options, spa treatments, casino gambling and Internet use. But most of these additional costs can be researched before boarding.caribbean, cruise, tourism
