Shelly, I recommend first going to a travel agent who specializes in cruises. You can find this out by reading their ads in the paper or yellow pages, or going to the CLIA website (www.cruising.org
) and asking for agents in your area listed with them. Once you talk with an agent, be sure you let them know what interests you in a vacation, and what lifestyle you prefer (casual, formal, a mixture of both, etc.) Many travel agents are familiar with all sorts of cruise lines, and after a bit of homework should be able to help you book the cruise that's right for you. Good luck!
