October is a Key Time for Travelers to Plan a Trip on a River or at Sea

Cruise Planners, the cruise vacation planning expert, has announced October is Plan a Cruise Month. Through a multi-dimensional campaign, the cruise industry has come together to showcase the wide variety of cruise experiences, proving there is a cruise vacation for every travel style, budget and occasion.

“More and more people are turning to cruises to provide them with an all-inclusive, stress-free vacation option, as cruises have so much to offer – from amazing dining experiences, Broadway-caliber entertainment and waterparks to the ability to visit multiple destinations in a single trip without having to unpack and pack your belongings more than once,” said Serena Neubacher, Cruise Planners. “We have found once our clients take a cruise, they fall in love with these vacations.
