Below, we provide a rundown of some of the most popular summer cruise destinations, as well as some pro tips to help you get the most out of your trip.

Alaska

It’s only possible to cruise Alaska in the spring and summer months. The season begins in May and ends in September, but is at its peak during the warm summer months. If you’re fond of outdoor activities such as hiking, wildlife, and exploring historical areas, an Alaskan cruise may be for you.

What Cruise Ship Crews Do to Fight Norovirus

Norovirus – better known as the “cruise ship virus” – is an extremely contagious stomach bug. You can get it not only directly from an infected person, but also from contaminated food or water, or even by touching contaminated surfaces. Typically, norovirus comes with symptoms like severe stomach pain, nausea, and often violent diarrhea and vomiting. When not properly treated, it can lead to dehydration and even hospitalization.

Why is it common on cruises?

Because a cruise ship is basically a giant petri dish, with a bunch of people crammed into a relatively tiny space, with nowhere to go to escape. When research shows how even just a few sick people can send millions of microscopic virus particles through the air and across surrounding surfaces, it’s easy to see how it could spread rapidly on a cruise.

The good news is that the US

Get the Feel of a Bespoke Cruise (without Paying for One)

At a time when cruisers are yearning for authentic, mind-blowing cruising experiences, the hotel giant Ritz-Carlton recently unveiled a cruise concept that will combine the lifestyle of luxury cruising and the thrill of yacht vacationing.

Through its unique Yacht Collection voyages, The Ritz-Carlton promises to provide experiences that will redefine luxury yachting – as well as holiday cruising. Their itinerary will include long, pleasurable port calls as well as visits to beautiful, secluded islands.

Ritz-Carlton’s cruises will basically be a luxurious buffet of wonderful cruising experiences. Just like the hotel’s luxury resorts, these cruises are designed to pamper every cruiser’s indulgence. On top of offering countless ways to enjoy yourself, the cruises will also tour exotic locales, offer luxe living spaces, and include many impressive amenities.

Ritz-Carlton may be the first luxury hotel enterprise to venture into small ship cruising, but they aren’t the

Staying Healthy: A Cruise Passengers Biggest Worry – How to Do It

A new poll that surveyed about 1,440 U.S. cruises found that cruise passengers are most concerned about illnesses and injuries just before or during the trip.

Falling ill or getting injured right before or during a cruise was the greatest worry for 42.2% of the respondents. The two other major concerns were bad weather (37.3%) and missing the departure of a cruise (20.5%).

This survey also found that medical issues were one of the reasons why cruise passengers filed travel insurance claims for cruise-related issues. On the whole, the findings of the poll tell us that staying healthy is probably the biggest priority for anyone who goes on a cruise.

Which makes sense. After all, if you’re going to shell out money to sail to an exotic location, you want to be able to enjoy the experience. So, how can you stay safe and

Your Guide to Filing a Cruise Ship Injury Claim

Injuries on any vacation can be a bummer, but cruise ship injuries can be especially dangerous. You’re stuck on a ship, and often cruise ship doctors are able to do little more than give you pain medication and other general treatment.

Injuries are even less fun when the accident is caused by the cruise ship. Slippery surfaces, norovirus, or even violent staff members can all lead to injuries.

The only silver lining? Cruise companies have a duty to keep their passengers safe. If you are injured by a negligent or abusive crew member, consider filing a claim and asking for compensation.

When Can I File a Cruise Claim?

If you have been recently injured by a cruise line, you may be able to file a claim. Not all injuries qualify, however. There must be some form of negligence directly related to your injury and

Spring Break Cruises: What to Look For, What to Know

The holidays have passed, and you’re probably already looking forward to warmer weather and a new adventure. Many people wait until summer, but spring is actually a great time to take a cruise.

There are enough options out there that families and “spring breakers” alike can enjoy a spring break cruise, but it’s important to know what to look out for.

Here’s what to consider before you book a spring break cruise:

Best Family Cruises vs. Best College Cruises

If you’re a parent, the last place you probably want your children to be is onboard with a bunch of drunk 21-year-olds. On the flip side, if you just turned 21 and want to get

Injured on a Cruise Ship – Be Careful What You Say

If you are injured on a cruise ship, it’s important to watch what you say, because the words you use can be the difference between whether you receive compensation for injuries caused by another’s negligence or have to pay for them yourself.

That’s exactly what happened to a passenger who was injured on Royal Caribbean Cruises. He filed a personal injury case against the cruise line after falling while ice skating, alleging that the ice skate he was provided was damaged, and that the ice in the ship’s rink had gouges that presented a hazard.

The jury ruled that both parties were negligent, but Royal Caribbean Cruises was deemed to be 65 percent liable for damages. This meant that the cruise line was going to have to pay over $400,000 in damages to the passenger.

However, the cruise line appealed the decision, and in
