Some people want to take the slow boat to China deal by doing a cruise to Costa Rica leaving out of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida with stops in Costa Maya, Limon, and Colon, Costa Rica, and you can spend 8 days on a Carnival Cruise down to Costa Rica and experiencing the port of calls along the way. This is a lot more exciting than being cramped on a flight when you can spend all the time relaxing and having a good time before you get to the ports of call, which is on days 3,5, and 6. Each stop is approximately one day long and there’s only one stop in Costa Rica that is on day 5 of the trip.
You can just sit back and look out onto the ocean and take in the next breath of air so clean you forgot you’re not in the city. Part of the fun about a cruise is the nighttime sky when you can walk out onto the deck and look at the clearest sky around. Most tourists enjoy that where they can go walking around the deck at night and the cost doesn’t come cheap you’re looking at about $3-5 grand for a week and a half or longer that’s why tourists need to plan their trip well to make sure you can get the most out of it financially.
Carnival cruises are one of the lines that do have stops in Costa Rica as their port of call and usually, there’s a trip through the Panama Canal, but it’s just straight down south winding your way through the Caribbean islands and stopping in some places, but you spend more time out on the water than you do stopping on land. Sailing instead of flying just buys you more time to relax comfortably instead of being squashed up inside a plane for a few hours when you can spend a few days chilling out on the deck and enjoying a drink while taking in some rays. There are a lot of cruise ship websites out there that can tell you when you should book your trip since the airline prices change quickly in a matter of a day.
So it’s ideal to get email notices about the fares, so you can book them quickly. Doing your homework can ensure you get the best fare possible for your money since it’s not exactly cheap to go on a ship. The average person spends a couple of years saving up for a cruise and booking when the price is not so high since flying cruises are costly at certain times of the year.
Booking a year early is your best bet in getting the dates you want, so you’re not paying full fare when the reduced rate is offered to you in advance to give you a chance to book your cabin. Cabins are booked by level and are priced differently. The most expensive would be towards the front.
