Terms First Time Cruisers Should Know

Taking a cruise line vacation is a long standing dream for many people. But that dream is sometimes dampened by the very confusing jargon used by both cruise enthusiasts and travel agents. If you're considering booking your family on an ocean liner vacation, here are some terms you should be familiar with before you set off to sea.

  • Air/Sea Package - This is a package deal that includes airfare from your home to wherever the cruise is launching from, as well as the cruise itself.
  • Berth - This is another term for your cabin on board the ship. Beds on ships are also sometimes called berths as well.
  • Dinner Seating - Most ships serve dinner in two shifts called, "seatings." If your family includes small children, you may want to request a first seating so that you can eat earlier.
  • Excursion - These are on shore day trips at various ports of call. Typical excursions include sailboat rides, snorkeling and horseback riding. Normally there is an additional charge for these tours and activities.
  • Freestyle Cruising - Cruises without assigned meal seating or times are considered to be "freestyle."
  • Inside Cabin - A berth on the inside core of the ship that does not have a portal. Inside cabins are normally the best deal, but can feel confined.
  • Maiden Call - The first port of call on any cruise is the maiden call.
  • Port of Call - Any place that a ship docks during its travels.
  • Stateroom - Another term for cabin or berth.
  • Upper Berth - The top bed in a cabin, though not necessarily the same as a bunk bed. The berth is sometimes folded up to allow for more room in the cabin.

    Cruise packages make it possible for singles, couples, and families to travel in comfort. Many cruise lines offer inclusive packages. These deals might include all of the drinks, foods, and excursions offered during the trip. Before taking a vacation, you might want to learn what types of deals a cruise line can offer you and your family. A cruise ship might offer all of the comforts of a resort. Many of them have private cabins, restaurants, bars, pools, and recreational activities. This makes traveling by ship a convenient, comfortable way to visit tropical islands or take a holiday trip down a river. There are cruise lines that operate all over the world. Some of them focus on Mediterranean tours, visiting islands located in the ocean far from other shores, or even excursions to Antarctic waters. The type of boat used during your family trip could depend on the area that you want to visit. Since many vacation packages come with inclusive deals, you should compare the overall prices offered by cruise lines. Consider that some of the tours might cost more upfront, but that they are cheaper in the long run because you do not have to pay for meals and entertainment during your trip. If you belong to a travel club, then you should also consider asking the vacation companies whether they offer discounted prices. Use the Internet to learn more about the packages that these companies offer. That way, you can choose a package with options that meet your specific interests.
