Regular readers of this blog will know all about just how amazing cruises can be as a way of getting around and seeing the world.
For anyone keen to visit many countries in a short period of time, while having an all-inclusive holiday packed into that, will find that cruises are among the best way to do so.
However, relatively few people know that there are actually a number of different kinds of cruises, and it is useful to know the differences between them if you want to make sure that your holiday is exactly right for you.
In this post, we are going to discuss some of the different kinds of cruises you can explore – which one is best for you?

If your goal is to have a crazy, no-holds-barred time of exploration, then you might well prefer to go on an adventure style cruise.
These are generally in exciting and out-there places and can either be on the ship the whole time, or on land partially, or mostly on land.
In any case, they are an exciting way to cruise around the world and not the kind of cruise that you will want to take your young children on.
So if you are taking your family, look elsewhere. For everyone else, however – adventure away!
Maybe you are going completely solo, and you want to just let loose and have a wild time. If that sounds like you, then you probably want to find a decent party cruise instead.
Fortunately, this is one of the most common cruise tips and boat party tickets are usually relatively cheap in comparison to other cruise and boat types.
However, you should be prepared to expect plenty of debaucheries if you are going on one of these boats, as you never know quite what can happen. Remember: what happens at sea stays at sea.
Food & Wine
Are you a true foodaholic? If so, the classic food and wine tour cruise could just be your ideal next holiday. Generally, these sail around some of the best foodie locations in the world and more often than not they are complete with on-board cookery classes and tasting sessions.
Maybe you are a keen amateur chef willing to practice your knife skills or you just love good food and don’t mind a little wine either.
Either way, food and wine cruises can be a fantastic way to see the world – all while getting your belly full.
Of course, when most people think of cruise lines, they think of the luxury kind. If you can afford it and you are willing to splash out, then going luxury is of course often the better way to go.
This is especially good if you are keen to celebrate or commemorate some kind of event, such as an anniversary or similar.
A luxury cruise is bound to keep you satisfied in more ways than one, so this is definitely worth considering if you are looking for a cruise this year.
