Why We Never Recommend Spring Break Cruises

You might be considering a spring break cruise this coming spring break.... 
DON'T DO IT! 

Don't get me wrong, cruises can be a blast, but there are plenty of reasons why you should plan a spring break trip with Inertia Tours to somewhere like South Padre Island or Cancun instead of opting for a cruise. We'll go over a few of them in this post.

Spring Break Cruise Negatives


First let's go over some of the negatives for a spring break cruise.

One reason you shouldn't do a cruise for spring break is because they will be crowded! Yes, other vacation destinations will be busy as well, but at least you wouldn't be confined to a small boat! Might be best to stay away from spring break cruises if you're claustrophobic at all. The close quarters also make it easier for food poisoning and illness to become a problem. If one person is sick, it spreads pretty easy on cruise ships.

The restrictions can also get in the way of a good spring break cruise with your friends especially if you're not 21 yet. Many cruise lines require you to be at least 21 to travel without a chaperone, and who wants to go on a college spring break trip with their parents?



Lastly, cruise ships can be nice and relaxing....if the weather permits. If you run into any bad weather, you better watch out. The rocking back and forth gets old pretty fast, especially if you are prone to sea sickness. There's also the furniture and heavy objects sliding across the floor that you have to dodge. Then there's the maintenance issues you have to worry about. No one wants to be stuck out at see without air conditioning or refrigerated food.

Spring Break Trip Positives



Now let's look at some positives for booking a spring break trip with Inertia Tours. 

There are so many things you get to experience by going to one of our Spring Break destinations that you would miss out on if you did a cruise. One of the biggest things you would miss are all of our HUGE parties we throw! We have thousands of people at our pool and beach parties. We also have the best hookups for local clubs at any of our destinations.

It's also nice to be able to stay at a condo that isn't rocking back and forth all the time. Lots of the places you can stay at will have full kitchens too, but don't worry, we have meal plans so you don't have to cook all the time. Getting a taste of the local grub is better than having the same thing every day on a cruise ship.


Being stuck on a cruise also makes you miss out on some amazing side trips! Yes they have excursions, but you usually don't have time to do everything you want to. With Inertia Tours, you have the option to do lots of different activities or side trips. For example South Padre Island has deep sea fishing, skydiving, learning how to surf, dolphin cruise, and lots more!

In the end, it's a no brainer. If you want a nice place to chill with your friends and party with big groups, then book your spring break trip with Inertia Tours. We have been doing this college spring breaks for a long time, and make sure to have the best parties with the best DJ's and celebrities to keep things going. Your price will be lower too, so that's a plus.
