How long in advance should I make the reservation

Most cruises posted on our site are filling out fast, for the quality of service and low price offered.

No, they are not included in any cruise packages. In general, meals are included and in each cabin there are complimentary bottles of mineral water. Some cruise may offer free tea/ coffee in meals but other drinks will be charged.

Can I go on a cruise if I am pregnant?

If you are pregnant, we advise you to make a serious check-up with your doctor. If your doctor say you can go, you can.
