Cruising Off The Grid
Many Americans aren't getting away from work when they go on vacation. It can be difficult to get away, even when you're taking time off. Sometimes, however, a forced respite from the stresses of work is just what's needed. Here are seven reasons to take an off the grid cruise vacation.

Cruising To Puerto Vallarta
Puerto Vallarta is one of the loveliest cruise ports on Mexico's Pacific Coast. This colonial city has magnificent architecture, great shopping, and excellent opportunities for tours and adventures. In addition, this tropical oasis is a watersports mecca with activities to match every interest.
Cruising To St. Kitts
If you're planning a Caribbean cruise, look for an itinerary that includes St. Kitts. This tropical island paradise has lush rainforests, beautiful beaches, historic forts and plantation inns, interesting shops, and a wide variety of adventures. Keep an eye out for the resident wild monkeys, too.
Cruising With A Purpose
Some cruise vacationers want to do more than bask on a beach and play in the ocean. They want to make real connections and do something that makes a difference for people and communities in need. Finding the right vacation option with opportunities to give back in a sustainable manner is key.
Cruising With a Two Year Old
Some parents believe that cruises aren't designed for families with two-year olds, but that's not the case. While most cruise line drop-off children's programs start at three years of age, one cruise line begins theirs at two years of age and others offer nurseries and fun activities as well.
Cruising With Young Children
Cruising is an excellent choice for a family vacation, even for families with little ones ages six months and older. Cruise line offerings for young children vary substantially, however. Parents must carefully research their options and choose a ship that will maximize their vacation enjoyment.
Cruising Without A Passport
On June 1, 2009, new passport requirements for U.S. citizens traveling in the Western Hemisphere took effect. There is a major exception, however. Passengers traveling to Western Hemisphere countries on "closed loop" cruises are not required to show a passport to reenter the United States.
