At we work for you to make sure your 2016 cruise is smooth sailing! Read below for our 2016 cruise guide!

Happy Traveler Comment
Thanks [Glynna] for this "gracious" walk through. What a wonderful customer service style you have. Much appreciated. Indeed I expect to enjoy this cruise. Will be hard to get off at the end of 16 glorious days. — Lynette K.

Cruise Line Apps: Several cruise lines have stepped up their technology and now offer phone apps and devices for cruisers that can assist in your travel needs. These applications can help you keep track of your onboard spending, help you navigate through the ship, stay in touch with friends and family aboard the cruise ship, and plan your daily activities. These apps are usually complimentary too, making the service that much better!

Check Your Licenses: New rules may go into effect late 2016 that could require airline passengers to update their driver’s license or have a passport for any air travel. Homeland Security has stated that they will give travelers adequate notice before the new policy goes into effect and will make sure we pass the information onto you!

Book during Wave Season: Wave Season is the cruise industries Black Friday but lasts a lot longer than one day! Wave Season is already in full effect and usually lasts until May. If you are looking for the best bang for your buck on your 2016 cruise, Wave Season is the time to buy. Take advantage of booking now for the best cruises in 2016 at the best prices.

Healthy Cruising: The cruise industry is adding healthier options in 2016. Bring your yoga gear and exercising attire because there are bound to be some activities onboard for fitness enthusiasts. Most cruise lines are also offering much healthier cuisines options too!

Talk to a Travel Agent: Each year new policies go into effect and 2016 is no different. Each cruise line has their own changes and rules so it’s best to talk to a travel advisor. Your travel agent will be able to tell you what is allowed aboard and let you know about all the secrets and new regulations to help you get the most out of your cruise vacation.

Best cruises in 2016Travel Technology: If you are tech savvy there are several advances in technology that will help you with your 2016 travel. There is the FLIO app for your air flight travel, the Moovit app helps you navigate public transportation in cities and towns all across the world, and tons of new gadgets. My personal favorite is the RealSense 3D Camera, there is no set launch date yet but this camera is designed to read people’s emotions and mood by their expressions. If you are traveling to another country this device would be fabulous if there is a language barrier.

Destinations and Itineraries: 2016 brings new destinations and itineraries that are really exciting! My personal favorite new destination that should be in full effect in 2016 is Cuba. Another cool feature becoming popular, especially with Celebrity Cruise Lines, is overnight port stays. I’m betting these overnight stays are a huge hit and become the norm for cruising in the years to come!

If you want to know more about any of the changes for 2016 or are interested in learning more about the new features scheduled to take place for cruisers this year call the at 1-888-804-CRUISE (2784).
