The Titanic set out on its maiden voyage from Southampton, England on April 10, 1912. It struck an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean on April 14, and sunk the next day. While ship design and safety has come a long way since those days, you can still have a disastrous cruise without some planning. Here are a few questions to answer before you book that next cruise.
1. Who is traveling?
A couple is looking for a different cruise than the family of four or the extended group celebrating Grandma’s 80th birthday. Look carefully at the cruise website: If it’s full of kids activities, it’s probably not the one for couples. And Grandma probably won’t like the “Kings of Rock and Roll” cruise if she’s looking for a quiet place for the family to gather together.
