The advantages of cruise travel are obvious: there is no need to travel by boat, and you can travel to many places easily and easily.
The itinerary has become so easy that the busy backpacker has become an enjoyable traveler, because the cruise only needs to be packed once, followed by the mobile five-star hotel every day, and just need to bring the camera every day.
If your vacation isn’t long, or if you like to improvise and don’t have time to get a visa?
Then, it is recommended to choose the route from the home port of China!
Speaking of truth, it is of course easy and convenient to travel on a cruise ship departing from the home port of China. You can set off with a white passport, without the tedious process of visa application.
Moreover, there are about 13 cruise ships with China as their home port (applause) :
Shanghai port, more than 95% of Shanghai outbound routes are to Japan, landing 2 or 3 in the majority.
Tianjin port has a disadvantage that it takes one whole day to get in and out of bohai bay, so it usually takes six days to land in Japan.
Xiamen port, xiamen port is closer to Okinawa, so 5 days and 4 nights can play Okinawa + Okinawa outlying islands two places. Some cruise ships of xiamen port will go to Taiwan.
Shenzhen, guangzhou port, most to southeast Asia, Japan Okinawa and Okinawa islands.
Sanya, at present sanya port cruise basically concentrated in winter, departure cruise more to Vietnam.
Most of the domestic routes go to Okinawa and its outlying islands in Japan.
What’s fun about sailing? Take costa cruises Venice for example, let’s have a look!
St. mark’s hall
This is the first main hall that you see when you enter the Venice. The tall and empty lobby inside the cruise ship makes people feel very comfortable immediately.
Phoenix grand theatre
Every day there will be a variety of wonderful performances staged here, remember a ship to choose their favorite venue, remember the time!
Juventus sea football stadium
Playing football at sea? Yes! There is not only a football field, but also the famous Juventus football camp.
Children’s activities are also very rich
There are sigao club, one day little captain, one day little princess, little performer, carnival parade and so on.
There are so many fun boat, not to mention off the ship and invincible exotic scenery!
Continuing with the costa Venice, the 7-day, 6-night trip is a classic: Shanghai departure – okinawa-sasebo – fukuoka – Shanghai return
The sea in Okinawa, Japan, is more beautiful than expected
Okinawa prefecture is located between kyushu island of Japan and Taiwan province of China. It is centered on the ryukyu islands. It is composed of miyako islands, bataishan islands and other islands.
Okinawa prefecture is rich in unique natural environment. In addition to the folk custom buildings in southeast Asia, China and Japan, it also has a unique American style compared with Japan. It is called “Hawaii of Japan” and is the hometown of karate.
Okinawa beach, Japan
Children who do not love digging sand, girls who do not love photos? Even if you do nothing, a walk in the sun on such a pure beach is wonderful.
Sasebo of Japan went out to watch dolphins
Another benefit of cruise travel is the ability to let go of the shopping without fear of baggage turnover becoming a burden.
Take the baby to see the sea
Often have a friend private letter asked me, the family has a baby and the elderly where to travel?
The answer: cruise travel! Especially suitable for taking home little baby and elders together, relaxed not tired!
Need not worry about the itinerary after oneself go abroad is arranged, want to use cruise only, the most basic eat accommodation line one key type to cover completely, too worry free have? It is especially suitable for children of small age to travel abroad.
However, although it is easy and convenient to start from the home port of China, the disadvantages are also obvious: the route choice is relatively simple.
If you have plenty of vacation time, want to take a cruise abroad, but also want to have a little different, then this time you can try the European river cruise.
It is well known that Europe has two major inland rivers, the Rhine and the Danube, which run through the whole of Europe and through many countries.
In fact, a lot of European and American tourists travel to Europe by inland river route, but suffer from the lack of Chinese service ship, so the Chinese people do not know much.
European river cruise
Compared with other modes of transport to Europe, river cruise has incomparable advantages:
For example, most of the European tour of European iron + bus + outbreak 】 【 way to travel, no matter how to plan, total want to waste our time on the way to the next stop of the trip, the journey will be very tired, so we chose a more relaxed way, you don’t have to spend more time and energy planning schedule and arrange to eat to live, but to spend more time to enjoy the process. & have spent

As the second longest river in Europe, the Danube has a total length of 2,850 kilometers, which is not long among the world’s major rivers, but the international river flowing through the most countries.

The Rhine river is the largest river in Western Europe. It starts at the northern foot of the Swiss Alps and flows northwest through Liechtenstein, Austria, France, Germany and the Netherlands before emptying into the north sea at Amsterdam.
The Rhine river journey usually starts from Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and then follows the Rhine river all the way to Dusseldorf, Germany – cologne – koblenz – rudesheim – spiel – Heidelberg – Strasbourg, France – Basel – lucen – jungfrau (life is also feeling the peak has not).

But t virgin’s service is to see “little red men” in red overalls just after getting off the plane and not out of the bridge, so even if they don’t speak English at all, or parents and children come, they don’t have to worry about getting lost at the airport.
