It's not the most novel concept, but there's something to be said of the continued success of cruise vacations. Though mostly tailored to the old and those with youngsters, there are smaller cruise ships that lose a lot of the well-oiled money machine feel that bigger cruises seem to have, and instead offer quiet, calm, and the bare necessities (like a pool).
