Thank you to Travel and Leisure and Hannah Lott-Schwartz for including me in: “10 Amazing Ways to See the U.S. by Cruise Ship”“Domestic cruising is brilliant,” says Lisa Niver, a Virtuoso travel advisor and cruising expert who spent seven years working on cruise ships. “For a while, travelers felt they had to fly far away to see something interesting or exciting, and now they’re realizing how much the United States and nearby has to offer.”
One major benefit: Because you won’t have to deal with jetlag for the most part, you won’t spend part of your vacation in recovery mode. In some cases, you can even drive to your departure port. “Everything is just easy,” Niver says. “You get on the ship, you unpack once, and you go to many destinations.”
Lisa Niver worked and lived on cruise ships for seven years for Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean and Renaissance Cruises.
