When looking for an adult only cruise, it is just as important to think carefully about your budget and the specials you encounter as it would be if you were planning a trip with a big family. While a smaller industry, those vacation companies that cater to singles and sexually adventurous couples act as a sort of microcosm of the larger travel industry as a whole. Many trip packages are virtually identical to their family-friendly counterparts, save for nudity clauses and perhaps some of the entertainment offerings. Always popular among those looking for a bargain are all-inclusive deals. How do they stack up against a la carte options?
An adult only cruise that offers an all inclusive package will have several benefits to the adventurous traveler. The biggest benefit is that you don’t have to worry about your budget skyrocketing out of control while on the trip. This can happen much more easily than you might think. In between all the debauchery, you’re going to want food, drinks, souvenirs, and more. It’s easy to go overboard, so to speak. A pre-paid package will also give you the ability to create a plan ahead of time that perfectly fits your budget. If you go a la carte, it may be hard to determine if you can even afford the trip.
Of course, the all inclusive adult only cruise isn’t going to be for everyone. Be careful about the company with whom you book the trip. Sometimes “all inclusive” isn’t exactly what it seems. Tips won’t be included, of course, but many packages will also exclude alcohol, dessert, and certain forms of transportation. Some people also find that these packages are a bit too restrictive. Although nothing is stopping you from spending more money once on the trip, you may not realize until later that you would rather be doing one thing while your trip itinerary says you’re doing another.
Your local travel agent may not be of immediate help when it comes to booking an all inclusive adult only cruise, but there is a world of possibility out there. It is a fairly explosive industry and you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a good vacation package. Do your research before picking a company, however. Try to find some reviews. One ship may have a very different idea of what constitutes “all inclusive” than another. The same can be said for the term, “adult activities”. Make sure you know what you’re getting into before booking that trip.
