School break starts in less than three months and probably most of us are planning a summer vacation as early as possible. It’s both time and money saving to plan a trip ahead of time. Regardless of whether it’s in or out of the country there’s always somewhere else to go. Just yesterday, my husband and I were talking about how we would spend our vacation this time. One of the options we had was going on a cruise ship since we haven’t done it in years now. A cruise trip was offered to us a year ago but we were not determined at the time to grab it. We grabbed the road trip instead.
We thought now is the best time to plan a cruise because of the season’s longer days and shorter nights. It was also summer when we did our first cruise and it was more fun to be on the deck during the day instead of during the night when all we saw was darkness of being in the ocean. But we don’t mean to scare you. You will surely enjoy sea cruising day and night. It’s just that in the spring and summer the weather is warmer and quite suitable for a sea cruise.
Since visiting St. Petersburg is on our travel list but hitting two or more cities in one travel opportunity is proven to be more worthwhile we thought flying to Moscow is appropriate. And from there take the Moscow to St Petersburg river cruise. We normally visit several cities of a certain country when time allows us. Sometimes we rent a car to drive around the country but it’s only this time that we figured out we could do it by sea cruising, too.
The cruise from Moscow to St Petersburg will be a new experience for us since it’s not a cruise from one country to another. Instead, it’s cruising from one city to another city in Russia. It’s like making the most of the travel and taking the opportunity to see much of the country. Furthermore, a russian river cruise is one of the great ways to explore Russia. And cruising a river might also be different from cruising a large sea. Perhaps there’s always something to see from a river.
Going on a cruise can be expensive for some travelers while it’s a kind of luxury for others. Whichever it is for you it always requires good planning. Checking on the timetable of a cruise ship is a good start to plan your cruise. And after checking, it’s time to decide when you can go cruising. Some cruising lines offer trips from spring to early fall only. In our case, summer is the best time because we’re on a work-free mode and it’s the most preferable time for us to be away longer.
Anyhow, the best time to plan your cruise is when you have decided to do this kind of a trip. And as long as you plan it long before the scheduled cruise. How about you, when is the best time for you to plan your cruise? I will be happy to hear your side.
