Finding a cruise to suit your dates

​Please use the following link to search for a cruise and see real time pricing on what is available for your selected dates. You will be directed to, this is also our company but concentrates solely on Cruising. If you book on this site your booking will generate through to our office and we will call in and add a firefighter discount to your cruise.  A Firefighter discount is available on most cruises.  


If you happen to book directly through the cruise line, we can take over the booking if only a deposit has been made. By having us look after your booking, our system notifies us when the price drops, the cruise line will not call you, but we will. We will apply any firefighter discounts which may be applicable. Having your Cruise handled by an agent is better than booking direct and there is no cost difference to you... in fact it may end up being cheaper.

Small Ship Cruises

On the smaller cruise lines with under 100 guests, you will not only meet the captain, but he will most likely know your name by the end of your adventure. And the rest of the crew will become familiar with your preferences for things like table location at dinner, your drink order, and the types of excursions and activities that you enjoy. This is not possible on the mega ships that may have over 2000 or more passengers.

Most of the smaller cruise lines are all-inclusive. This means that there are no charges for special meal requests, airport or hotel transfers, excursions or drinks with your meals. And with under 100 guests, you will not spend half of your trip standing in line for meals, activities or to speak to a crew member.

Deluxe Cruise Lines

The deluxe brands offer a more subdued atmosphere and refined country-club ambiance and generally attract more affluent guests seeking authentic experiences. These ships generally offer unique land programs with longer stays and more overnights than a larger cruise line. They also offer an upscale experience generally at a lower price than luxury cruise lines.

The premium lines provide the most diverse size and selection of ships for couples, singles, families and groups. From more traditional cruise ships to river boats, the accommodations range from inside cabins for three to four people to suite accommodations.  Depending on the cruise line, most offer traditional cruise activities and entertainment, casual dining options and specialty restaurants.

Traditional Cruise Lines

Traditional cruise lines are ideal for most families, couples, singles and groups looking for a fun, exhilarating vacation. These ships generally are the largest afloat and offer a wide variety of dining options and activities for all age groups. Entertainment tends to be high energy with Las Vegas-style production shows, lounges and discos for dancing. These larger cruise lines generally offer some of the most extensive programs for children and teens.
