8 Ways Cruising Will Change
From smaller staff and less guests to modified itineraries, cruises will undergo changes to help protect their staff and their guests. Cruises will be choosing meal plates over buffets, and may require guests to wear face masks in public settings. Another change that will occur is a drop in prices due to the desire to fuel demand for cruising. We will be on the lookout for the inevitable deals! Call us if you want to plan a future cruise at 847-394-1155.
