Some cruise ship passengers travel for a long time from a couple of weeks to several months. Cruise lines such as AmaWaterways and Holland America Line are making available longer travel itineraries.
A large number of people spend months on long voyages traveling mostly on their own. One American by the name Halee, 78, stated that some of her voyages can take as many as 80 days.
“They’re just fabulous, because you get to see all these places that you’d never otherwise see, unless you sat on a plane for 12 hours, which I don’t like to do,” she said.
Longer cruises require more planning. Some travellers arrange for someone to check on their homes while they are away.
One of the travellers said that she organizes to have enough clothes for the various destinations that they will visit and have sufficient medicine for the duration.
