4 Itineraries That Are Not Worth Your Vacation Timeby Aaron Saunders | August 01, 2017
The Cruise to Nowhere
These are less prevalent than they used to be, but they’re still out there – and they can be very attractive, particularly if you live near the port of embarkation. They’re cheap, they’re quick ... but they’re not all that satisfying. Your ship will crawl out of the harbor, putter along at five knots for an entire day (we’ve watched swells roll in at a faster speed than our ship), and then turn around and go right back to where you started from. It’s a great way to see a ship, or try out a new line, but there are so many worthy options that do go somewhere — and provide a better onboard experience at the same time.
The Alternative: A cruise to anywhere. Seriously.
