For 5 grueling weeks he sailed with the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria from Spain to the Americas. Luckily for us, technology has changed the world and we can follow in his famous footsteps in 1/3 of the time! Conditions on the ships are a little better (indoor plumbing, electricity, you know… the little things in life!) as well.
Imagine boarding a ship in Spain…destination unknown. Unlike Chris, you do know your destination because you get to pick your itinerary! But hey… where’s your sense of adventure?
Imagine… ports the first few days of your cruise and relaxation for the last six or seven? If you want a ship with a lot of action and activities, try Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Princess and Carnival. If you are looking for nothing but educational lectures, book time, and relaxing, pull up a luxury cruise line like Regent, Silversea, Oceania and Seabourn. Always something for everyone!
So in honor of Christopher Columbus…jump on board and let’s sail away together!
