OCEAN CRUISES Radisson - Venice

Visit exciting different ports of call every day or two and only unpack your suitcase once.

Discover so many activity choices on board that the ship itself becomes the destination.

Sailing the seven seas aboard a large ocean going vessel offers the world to you at the end of the ship’s gangway. You can take part in countless shipboard activities or you can just relax and read a book with no one to bother you. You have choices of several dining venues, both casual and semi formal or even served in your stateroom.

Ocean Crusing - Stateroom
Major cruise lines are building bigger and better ships with innovative activity centers for the ‘young at heart’. The newer large ships offer huge numbers of verandah staterooms. Many of these cruise lines offer value-oriented options. They open up world wide locations and a world of discovery to their passengers. It only takes sailing on one cruise to create a cruising aficionado.


Gott-A-Travel agents have extensive cruising familiarity on the major large ship cruise lines and will be able to match a shipboard experience to your wants and needs.

SMALL SHIP CRUISING

Explore fascinating destinations and go home with stories to tell your friends. Investigate unique unspoiled environments that only small ships can offer.

Windstar Under SailCruising or sailing on small ships has most of the advantages of large ship cruising with some added bonuses. The smaller vessels can get into more exotic ports around the world. They can get pier space, instead of anchoring out in the harbor, or sometimes the passengers can debark on shore without any pier utilization.

Small ships tend to be less formal than the larger ships. Some smaller ships offer an upscale and elegant milieu. Some cruise lines emphasize personal enrichment or ecologically involved programs. These small vessels might be with sail or motor and could be home ported anywhere around the globe.

The disadvantage is that they can not offer the same wide range of onboard entertainment and diverse activities as large ships.

Some people think that they could not enjoy cruising on a cruise ship. Gott-A-Travel believes that these people are only looking at the large ship cruise lines. There are individuals who might better enjoy a ‘soft adventure’ or an adventure challenge from one of these very diverse small ship experiences. There are so many variations within this small ship grouping that they can’t even be categorized. Our agents believe that we can match a smaller ship cruising experience to any one of these naysayers. There is a successful cruising experience just waiting out there for each person to discover.
