Cruising History

Posted September 12th, 2012

Cruising is fast becoming the holiday of choice. But with so many types of cruises to choose from, it can be a bit of a daunting process knowing exactly where to start. Here is a bit of a background on cruising to help you begin your search for your perfect cruise.

Holidaying on cruise ships has now become an increasing popular holiday choice for may people. The many benefits of cruising are now more wide known. Because of this, the cruising industry has gone through a stage of growth which means there are now many more choices and possibilities for you when you are choosing a cruise to suit you.

The history of cruising goes back to the 1920's, when cruising was only an option for the wealthy. However, now it is a holiday option for everyone, young, mature, families, singles and newly weds. With many cruise companies offering very competitive pricing, the choice for customers is huge. Whether you want a 20 day trip through parts of Europe or just a three day cruise from Auckland to Sydney you will find one to suit your needs.

Most cruises within the same category, for example, all 2-3 week ocean cruising cruises, are all similar in most respects. But the best idea is to compare the cruises on a like-for-like basis so the differences are more obvious and easier to see. This way, you can find exactly what you are looking for which will make your decision about which cruise is the best for you  simpler.
