Ready to consider it?

Here are eight of my own favorite reasons to plan a cruise.

1. Affordable Prices

By far one of the best reasons to plan a cruise is the incredible value you get for your money.

Along with offering affordable prices, cruising allows you to visit multiple places all in one trip, without the added cost of airfare, hotel stays and eating out.

Just be aware when cruising that there are certain things not automatically included in the initial price, such as booking excursions, dining at on-board specialty restaurants, paying gratuities or buying alcoholic drinks.

Do some research in advance and set a budget for these types of extras in order to avoid spending more than you want.
