It's no secret that Canadians LOVE cruising! The peaceful days at sea combined with luxury service and a true getaway from the real world makes for an unforgettable experience. My wife and I can't get enough of cruising and honestly, we would live on a cruise ship if we could! It's worry free travel where every detail is taken care of and the scenery in constantly changing.
The cruise industry had its biggest year ever carrying an estimated 27 million passengers. It's not surprising as cruising has become more affordable, technology has improved (how can we live without wi-fi!?) and your hotel room can travel the world! Many Canadians believe you have to travel to New York or Florida for a dream cruise, but there are actually many departures right in our own back yard!
