I am not talking about your grandparents cruises! Gone are the days of dining windows and structured schedules. Many cruises are now catering to a more laidback clientele. You get all of the benefits of exploring different places with the relaxation of only unpacking once and not worrying how you will get to the next place.
Whether you prefer to book your shore excursions ahead of time or just wander around each city, you can cater your cruise experience to your individual vacation style. Cruises make great romantic getaways but they are amazing for multi-generational family trips as well (especially for guests who have mobility concerns).
