It’s Plan A Cruise Month, and I’ve been asked to find out what you think about cruises.
I went on my first (and, so far, only) cruise a couple of years ago with my daughter. I wasn’t sure whether or not I’d enjoy the trip, as I generally prefer to travel independently, I don’t like being with crowds of people, and I feel sea sick on the ferry from Dover to Calais. To my surprise, I really enjoyed the experience, and would definitely recommend it. We went on a one-week cruise of the Eastern Mediterranean, and it was great. I didn’t feel sea sick once, we went to some fabulous places, and I could never tire of watching the constantly changing view from our cabin. If you’d like to know more about our trip, check out my post Cruising for beginners which I wrote on board the ship.

But what do you think about cruises? Have you ever been on one? If not, would you like to go on one? I’ve put together a very short (three questions in total) questionnaire to find out what you think – I’d love it if you could spare a minute to fill it in:
Thanks very much!
Plan a Cruise Month
October is the Cruise Lines International Association’s (CLIA for short) Plan a Cruise Month. There’s a different theme each week: Family-Friendly, Discovery, River and Luxury, and you can follow along (and join in) on Twitter by looking out for the #CruiseMonth hashtag.
Disclosure: I’m working with the CLIA to raise awareness of cruise holidays.
