Are you getting ready for your first cruise? Or are you a seasoned cruiser? If you are a newbie and have not yet taken the leap, then read on why cruises are indeed a fun way to travel!
As we know, when planning a family or solo trip, it can get very stressful, especially if you are trying to accommodate everyone’s needs or want to visit multiple places in a short trip. Depending on the cruise you sign up for, they will also take you to your favourite destination island or country. For example, Norwegian Cruise Line offers cruisers multiple destinations in a single trip!
Cruise holidays offer great value as your fares include world-class dining (depending if it’s full board or all-inclusive), accommodation, water sports, gym, entertainment throughout the day and transportation between destinations. Some cruise lines also offer free upgrades to include a premium drinks package, speciality dining, Wi-Fi, gratuities, shore tours, onboard spending credits, and even flights bundled into the fare. Not forgetting they have plenty of loungers dotted around the poolside and you won’t even need to rent it! Also if you are ill, they have an in-house doctor and nurse, if needed. You can always stay in touch with the real world with Wi-Fi, cell service and satellite TV.
These days cruises are designed to keep everyone happy as they have a wide range of game-changing activities for all ages. You can lounge in the sun reading a book, while your kids go rock climbing or watch a movie. Or maybe pamper your other half at the spa while you hit the gym? At night, you can watch a live music performance with the whole family or enjoy the cooling breeze and watch the stars twinkling above! This is why cruises have become an increasingly popular solution! Most major cruise lines offer babysitting and kids clubs to keep younger children and teenagers occupied. As for parents, you can sneak away for an afternoon nap or dine at a fancy restaurant. However, it is always best to check with them regarding the timings and book ahead to avoid disappointment.
As I mentioned earlier, some lines offer island hopping and shore excursions. You only need to unpack once and your floating hotel takes you from island to island or from city to city. You don’t need to worry about moving your luggage, checking in to a new hotel each time you move, arriving early for your flight or getting on the right platform for your train. You can wake up every morning in a new place and go on a shore excursion once you are docked. Just pick an itinerary that visits all the cities on your wish list.
Everyone deserves a vacation. Cruise holidays offer many benefits to cruisers in one unique package. So, would you consider going on a cruise?
