Create your own package: cruise lines are giving passengers the opportunity to select offers and make their own package, including airline, onboard credit and other things.

Faster Getaways: More and more ships offer short breaks from two to four days. These are preferred by local residents in the ports and destinations of cruise operations. 46% of those surveyed by Cruise Critic said they would consider doing a short cruise.
