Is a Trip on a Large Cruise Ship the Choice for You?

In the world of cruise liners there are ships of all shapes and sizes, with varying levels of serenity and excitement. FLL Park Safe would like to make your decision process between big and small cruise liners an easy one, with our top 5 reasons why a large cruise ship may be the right cruise for you. 

Reason 1: You Like Large Crowds

Most large/mega cruise liners carry over 1,500 passengers plus crew, which can be overwhelming for some people, and exciting for others. If you love to people watch, enjoy the hubbub and excitement of happy people going to and fro, then a big cruise ship might be the choice for you. Though, this is not to say that on a large cruise ship you will never get a second to yourself. The opportunity to lose yourself in thought and simply relax is there, you only need to know where to look... All large cruise ships have quiet areas like, the library, decks away from the pool, and not to mention you can rent a balcony cabin and have your own solitary oasis to just look out onto the ocean from and relieve some of your stress.

Reason 2: You are Bringing the Kids and/or Grandkids

You will be hard pressed to find a vacation location as well suited for multi-generational travelers than a large cruise ship. On a large cruise ship your options for family friendly activities are mind-boggling. Whether you are looking for family oriented activities like: dance lessons, surfing, basketball or swimming, the choices are there if you have the energy. Perhaps you need the kids to be distracted for a few hours… Most large ship cruise lines have children’s programs with a dedicated staff, activities and even under-age lounges with alcohol free cocktails and popular music. If this sounds enticing then a vacation on a large cruise ship might be for you.

Reason 3: You Hate Planning Activities and Keeping People on Schedule

When it comes to vacation planning most people think that choosing a destination is the whole kit-and-caboodle. They don’t want to have to think about where they are going to eat, sleep or how and when we are getting to the next destination/stop on the trip. Cruises large and small are great at removing this stress, by having most decisions made before you even step aboard. Large cruise ships have more activities, so the stress of deciding which activity will be the most fun still exists, but you don’t have to come up with these ideas all on your own.

Reason 4: You Love to Gamble

Smaller cruise liners usually don’t have a casino or gambling.  You have to wait until you make port and port calls can be anywhere from 4 hours to 2 days, with an average port call of 10 hours. All the big cruises have casinos, so if gambling on the high seas is a high priority, a large cruise liner is the vessel for you.

Reason 5: You Have Budgetary Constraints

The large cruise liners are always cheaper than the smaller vessels. Often times the disparity in price is so high, that you can take 3 trips with an interior room for the price of one trip on a small vessel with a balcony. So if your travel budget is small and you want your hard earned dinero to go the distance, a large cruise liner is the choice for you..

Whether a large or small cruise ship is the one for you, there is one constant when it comes to taking a cruise… Make sure you park your car at the best cruise ship parking location in Florida. Be sure you choose a safe location; one with video surveillance, a rotating guard and the best customer service bar-none… You guessed it FLL Park Safe, Fort Lauderdale’s #1 rated cruise ship and long term parking service AND the highest rated shuttle service in all of Florida, is the right choice.
