Cruise season is around the corner — start planning now!

Posted On: 01/22/2019

For now, the weather is still cold. As storms rip through the northeast, it might be difficult to think your spring and summer holidays are right around the corner, but cruise season is coming up! Take off your mittens and hats, and start planning your travels and transportation now.

There are a number of cruise lines that operate out of Boston and the rest of the New England area. Norwegian Cruise Line, Holland America Line, Royal Caribbean International, Seabourn, and Celebrity Cruises offer cruises to Bermuda, Canada, throughout Europe, around New England, and more. Cruises range from a few days to a few weeks, and there are plenty of options still available for groups and parties of all sizes and ages. Some offer celebrity experiences, others provide adventures through beautiful waterways and foreign coastlines.

Regardless of which cruise you choose, there are a few things you’ll want to make sure you bring. First, you’ll want to bring clothes and shoes for activities. Not only will you want to walk around your destination, but cruises also often have gyms and group workouts. You’ll want to participate after hitting the buffet and lying in the sun all day! A bathing suit is of course a must, but formal attire is another thing you’ll find will come in handy. While you may be tempted to fill your suitcase, packing light will ensure you’ll be able to keep a tidy cabin, and that you’ll be able to manage your stuff at your destination.

GO Boston is now offering transportation services especially tailored to cruise goers. Ride with us, and you won’t have to pay for long term parking or worry about missing your cruise because of bad traffic. The Black Falcon Cruise Terminal has more than 100 different cruise ships operated by dozens of cruise lines, all used by more than 300,000 travelers a year. Make your cruise reservations now, and we’d be happy to help you set up your warm weather adventures!
