Reasons to Use Cruise Line Transfers
It’s true: once you set foot on your cruise ship, you can forget the world you’re temporarily leaving behind. Entertainment, dining options, a pool and gym – most modern cruise ships are stocked with all the amenities and facilities you need to have a great holiday. However, before you can take advantage of them, you’ll still need to get to the dock and board the cruise ship, and the last thing you need is to encounter frustrations, delays or rip-offs along the way. Booking a cruise line transfer (a pre-arranged car service that takes you from the airport to the pier, and/or vice versa) is really worth it. Here are three distinct advantages you’ll get when you opt for this service.
Definitely at the top of the list, pre-booking a ground transfer before your cruise allows you to ease into your cruising holiday. It’s far more convenient to have your ride already waiting for you when flying into and out of a destination. There’s no need to wait in line for a taxi, and there’s no need for you to explain just where you need to go. You can also protect yourself from falling into the hands of an unscrupulous taxi driver – unfortunately, they do exist! Going on a cruise is all about relaxing, exploring new places and cultures, and just having a great time. Give your cruise holiday the best beginning and end by organising a cruise line transfer. It’s the little conveniences that end up making the biggest difference to your time away.
We all know the feeling: sitting in the back of a taxi in peak traffic, seemingly a million miles from where you need to be, your heart beats against your chest and ominous visions of you missing your flight or cruise flashes through your mind. Luckily for many of us, we do end up getting to the airport or port on time, but boy, was it a stressful experience! Do yourself a favour and organise a transfer with your cruise line or travel agent, and rest assured that you’ll get to where you need to be in both time and comfort. They’ll be there to pick you up – usually with a smile, and they’ll make sure your trip begins and finishes without a hitch.
Last but certainly not least, if your transfers are not already included in your cruise package, then adding return transfers to your booking certainly won’t break the bank – especially if you are travelling as a couple or a small group. Paying for your transportation to the embarkation and disembarkation points in advance allows you to keep more of your cash on hand, and of course prevents you from paying much more when you should when you land or depart from a foreign city. Another great benefit is that you can do your research online and compare prices to ensure the rates are reasonable before booking.
