Special Report: Cruising

Choose to Cruise
It's the hottest way to travel these days. If you've ever stood in line at a Starbucks and pondered the seemingly endless choices, you have some idea of what it's like to choose a cruise lately. Mind-boggling! And as cruising becomes more and more popular--given all its advantages in a weak-dollar economy--the choices have multiplied. Should you opt for a river cruiser or an ocean-going vessel? Small, mid-size, or mega ship? White-glove, six-star service; intimate, eclectic, and casual; or big and jam-packed with activities? Then there are the itineraries to consider, with options in virtually every corner of the globe.

So, how do you choose? After all, this isn't just a cup of coffee. Interestingly, while about 50 percent of overall travel is booked online, only 7 percent of cruises are, according to PhoCusWright, a company that tracks online travel activity. Cruisers, especially first-timers, rely much more heavily on the services of a professional travel agent to help them navigate the complexities of cruise bookings, to say nothing of sorting through the reams of destinations, cruise lines, and individual ships. First-hand advice from the cruise specialists at Hideaways will prove invaluable when it comes to booking your cruise--and here's why. A recent study by a cruise-booking company showed that the number-one reason for customer dissatisfaction was that people were on the wrong cruise. Your Hideaways Travel Specialist (877-843-4433) can help you avoid exactly that pitfall.
