All Aboard: New Cruise Vacation Options

By Melissa Rice on July 17, 2018

Are you looking for a new travel adventure? The LoveShack Vacations team is excited about the variety of cruise vacation options available right now, including brand new ships with incredible, innovative features.

This year brings us the largest cruise ship ever (Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas), a ship with a double-decker go-cart track (Norwegian Bliss), and balcony cabins with completely retractable exterior walls (Infinite Verandas on Celebrity Edge) … Just to name a few!

Wondering if a cruise is right for you? Cruising is great for:

Couples – Dinner and show? Breakfast in bed? Spa day? There are plenty of ways for couples to enjoy their time at sea, in addition to the adventure of visiting new cities together. Cruises are great for honeymoons, special celebrations, or just reconnecting.

Families – Cruising is great for travelers of all ages. Kids’ programs feature fun, supervised activities and teen areas offer cool hang out spaces, giving parents the chance to enjoy time together. Plan exciting excursions or relax at the beach during ports of call. Enjoy family meals with options to satisfy even the pickiest appetites.

Friends – Who doesn’t love a getaway with your best buds? Spend your cruise soaking up the sun, enjoying cocktails, and dancing the night away. If you’re an active bunch, head to the ship’s sports deck—some even offer rock-climbing and surf simulators—or include port activities like zip lining, snorkeling, and more.


Groups – Cruising is a great way to bring people together. Plan a reunion, conference, wedding, or even a fundraiser for your favorite charity. Many ships offer meeting space and the service of an event planner to help coordinate onboard activities—and of course plenty of time for unplanned fun too!
