Consider looking into ocean cruises. There can be many deals with discounts for the whole family or for just a couple. Great opportunities for singles as well. A chance for everyone to see the world while traveling in luxury.
Ocean cruises are becoming a more popular form of vacations in recent years. There are great opportunities for good discount bargains on cruises throughout the world. Just look for them on the internet. There are so many cruise lines and so many locations to go. The types of rooms vary; each with their own price range. Many ships offer rooms classified as Inside, Oceanview, Balcony, and Suite.

Inside is the least expensive which is inside the middle of the ship, as the name implies, with no view to the ocean. Oceanview is the next level with a window view of the ocean. Balcony is the third level with a balcony where you can step outside. Finally, there is the Suite which is the most luxurious, as the name implies, but also the most costly. Each of these four types of rooms can have variations in what is offered in the room and what the cost is. You should decide what type of room you like and how much you are willing to pay for it. Look for discounts. They are usually always available. The closer you get to the cruise dates, the better the deals will be. Cruise lines do not like to leave port with empty rooms.
Of course, you are probably going to need air transportation to the port where the ship sets sail. Many times a travel agent will offer a package with air travel included with your ocean cruises. I recommend that you check the rate of the cruise without the air travel and try to look for discount flights. You may find that it is cheaper doing each separately. Some ocean cruises do not end their cruise in the same port where they began. When this happens, you will have to make plans to travel back from a different port. If you live near the port or departure, you would have an advantage of not needing air transportation. If saving as much money as possible is your top priority, then you might consider a cruise from a port near you.
Many ocean cruises offer cruises that cater to different types of groups. Family vacations with children are available on may cruise ships. There are activities that cater to children of different ages. Disney cruise lines are in this category; but, there are many other cruise lines that also have great activities for children. Check out the cruises of your choice for activities catering to the age group of your children. The experience of a cruise is a vacation by itself. Scavenger hunts, face painting, jewelry making, bowling for teens, ping pong, etc. The list goes on.
Single cruises are another type of cruise available. They can be hosted singles cruises which can be ideal for singles of all ages. This is a great opportunity for single people to take a cruise with the opportunity to meet other singles. Great for someone without a partner to share this fabulous experience with others. You can even find someone to room with to cut cost through programs that are available when you search for hosted singles cruises. There are also special cruises for alternative lifestyle couples and singles. This would provide a fun filled vacation for gays and lesbians.
Ocean liners can also cater to the elderly ages 55 and over. Many ocean cruises offer discounts to this age group. I have found that many senior citizens take cruises on a regular basis. Many are retired and have the time to enjoy long extended cruise so that they may see sites throughout the world and have a built in hotel on the ship. I have met some senior citizens on a cruise that I was on, who told me that they spend a good part of the year traveling on many different ocean cruises. There is so much to do on a cruise ship and still get to see various ports all over the world.
