Things to Know When Planning a Holiday Cruise

Holiday cruises are a fun way to celebrate in the winter, but it’s helpful to prepare a bit differently from a regular cruise.

In this post, we’ll give you money-saving tips and cover other things you should know before you book a holiday cruise. (There’s still – barely – time!)

Money Saving Tips for Holiday Cruises

Often, you can find great deals on holiday cruises, because most travelers are staying on land to celebrate. Due to lower demand, prices usually drop. So, you can save a bundle on the cruise itself.

However, if you must fly to the departure port, know that airfare rates tend to soar due to higher demand. You can avoid this expense through driving or booking your flight well in advance of your departure date to get the best rates.

To get the lowest rate on your cruise, be flexible

What to Expect If Your Cruise Ship Experiences a Fire Onboard

If you are taking a cruise this year, the last thing you’re probably worried about is suffering injury in a fire. After all, you’ll be surrounded by water!

However, cruise fires do happen, and they can be dangerous if they get out of control because there’s nowhere to escape to on a ship.

In this post, we’re going to discuss how and where cruise fires commonly happen, and what you can expect if your ship experiences a fire.

The Risk of Cruise Fires

In the past 20 years, 72 reported fires have occurred on cruise ships. Since thousands of cruise ships set sail each year, the risk of experiencing a cruise fire is relatively low.

Who Can Be Held Accountable If You’re Assaulted on a Cruise

Most people sign up for a cruise to escape the pressures of daily life.

However, if you are assaulted while on a cruise, your peace of mind can be destroyed, and you may have grounds for a lawsuit.

That’s exactly what happened to one woman who was sailing on a Celebrity Cruise ship in August 2017 and decided to agree to a crew member’s offer for a complimentary massage. The crew member led her to the ship’s spa area and allegedly convinced her to undress and fondled her before she escaped the room.

She is now seeking $75,000 in damages for physical and psychological suffering, along with expenses for hospitalization, therapy, and counseling. Her lawyer says that both the spa and the cruise line were negligent because they did not properly screen the assailant before he began working there.

What’s Next for the Cruise Worker Found Alive after 22 Hours at Sea?

A cruise ship worker from the Norwegian Getaway cruise ship recently fell overboard in the Gulf of Mexico. US Coast Guard ships attempted to locate the man for many hours, but they eventually called off the search after covering over 1,600 square miles without success.

He had no survival devices at the time of his rescue, and he is presumed to have treaded water the entire time he was stranded.

Although the victim was rescued due to an extremely lucky coincidence, drownings and other injures are not uncommon on cruise ships for crew members and passengers alike. Unfortunately, holding the responsible parties accountable for preventable accidents is often a complex matter, as accidents

Thinking about a Fall Cruise? Here’s Where and How to Cruise

Fall cruises are a great opportunity for a family getaway before all the chaos of the holiday season begins. Fall cruises are also frequently less expensive than peak season cruises, which means they’re a great time to score a bargain.

Here are some of the best cruises to embark on during the fall season.

New England and Atlantic Canada

New England and Atlantic Canada are famous for their brilliant fall foliage. Also famous in New England is the horrendous traffic caused by all the leaf peepers, so cruising is a spectacular way to take in the fall foliage from the luxury of a cruise ship.

New England cruises typically depart from Boston or New York, and sail up to Nova Scotia or even along the Saint Lawrence river farther north. Common ports of call are located in Maine, Nova Scotia, Quebec, and New Brunswick.
