What Is Ocean Cruising All About?

Ocean Cruising 

Ocean cruising has been around for a very long time. It was once the Ultimate Escape! People needing a vacation to rejuvenate or refresh themselves, or just to change environments, looked to the ocean seas to carry them away. This was an adventure, traveling to places that were hard to get to, or at least remote enough to escape the drudges of every day life. Yes; on a cruise ship life's cares melted away with the warm sun and the ocean breezes refreshed the body and the mind. You could set out on a journey that took you to a wonderful place where it seemed, the world could never touch you.

The Evolution Of Ocean Cruising 

It started out as a worry-free travel experience, where everything was contained, and included on the journey. The cruise was all about the journey with everything you wanted or needed was on board the ship. A quick stop over in a port for a short land experience was a nice diversion from the rolling seas. However, most people were happiest being on the ship. All of the food, drink and entertainment was included in the trip and all one had to do was relax and enjoy everything being offered to them.

Ocean Cruising began to evolve...

The ocean cruise experience has changed a lot. There is so much more to this style of travel and leisure cruising than was ever thought possible. Instead of one type and size of ship, there are a wide variety of options for the type of vessel you want to sail on. Ships are now recognized by style, too. You have the budget lines, the moderate priced lines, the traditional lines, the luxury lines, and the Mega ships. From small ocean cruise ships, to the more traditional style and size, all the way up to the huge mega ships holding upwards of 6,000 passengers - actually; floating cities.

Now, even the small ocean cruise ships are offering multiple options for their destinations, and life on board. Over the last few decades leisure ocean cruising changed from an all-inclusive journey to a check list of a la carte elements each passenger could add to their experience.  Certain Meals, Beverages, Amenities and Experiences were now costing extra.

The evolution continues...


Client Love!

Celebration Escapes really knows Ocean Cruising and what lines are best for what itineraries. They know the ships that each line has and how to match them to what we like on our cruise experiences. We couldn't cruise without them!

~ Lena & Marvin

Celebration Escapes know exactly who has the luxury ships and itineraries. They know which lines are all-inclusive and which ones have small ships for intimate cruising and personal service. They are invaluable to our cruising journeys!

~ Marsha & Brent

Without Celebration Escapes we would not know when to book for best rates, what itineraries are new and exciting, what new programs are being added and what the best matches are for our cruising preferences.
