Vacations should be hassle-free. Yet with all the trip planning, baggage lugging and plane catching, they’re often just the opposite. That’s the beauty of a cruise. No matter the type — and there are hundreds to select from — cruises provide a one-stop-shop travel experience: entertainment, sightseeing, food and drink. And you have to unpack only once, no matter how many new places you see. Whatever your cruise personality, there's a water voyage that will suit both you and your wallet. We offer three examples at different price levels for each kind of cruiser.

Cruises that include stops for cultural or historic treasures or gorgeous scenery.

For the adventurer
Less sunbathing, more action: Trips for people who want to be on the move.
