Even if you have to fly to a cruise, land-based resort vacations have a tough time matching the value of cruise vacation.
If you are able to drive to a port, it’s IMPOSSIBLE for a Caribbean, Bahamas, Mexico, or Bermuda land-based vacation to compete with the value of a cruise.
One of my favorite parts of cruising is arriving to the home port city a day or two in advance to explore. The port cities along the US coast offer incredible dining, attractions, and yearly festivals.[button link=”http://bit.ly/Cruisebook” style=”download” color=”orange”]Download Free eBook[/button]
Another great thing about arriving a day or two early is the reduction/prevention of stress. The stress about car trouble or missing connecting flights is lower because you have a time cushion. The day of embarkation [boarding the ship] can be much more relaxing when not rushing to make it to the cruise ship. Many hotels offer Free or discounted parking while you are on your cruise which will help offset the expense of getting a hotel room.
To help you make the most out of your home port cruise experience, we’ve written a Cruisers’ Guide to US Port Cities. It is loaded with the best restaurants, hotels, and attractions – many of which keep you close to the cruise terminal.
