If you’ve heard of cruising, you may have heard the myth that it’s only suited to older people. The truth is; going on a cruise is a great option for holiday for couples, friends, or family. There’s something for everyone on board, in fact; some people argue that cruises are better than land holidays, claiming they’ll never take another land holiday again after going on their first cruise! In my opinion, everyone should at least consider a cruise holiday once in their lifetime. Let’s take a look at the benefits of cruising and why everyone should do it once:
All Inclusive Offers
You can cruise all inclusive. You not only pay for your cruise, but your food, your room, and your transport too. It’s much financially smarter than a land holiday. Some cruises are even as cheap as £100 per night! This is less than you’d spend on a hotel in a big city. It’s also much simpler than booking a flight, hotel, transport, and activities.
Cruises are amazingly affordable, and there are so many price options. If you can’t afford a 7 day cruise, you could still book a 3 day cruise and live in luxury for those 3 days. You can find plenty of choices on this website
It’s Less Stressful
The fact that you can book everything at once at the start of the trip takes a lot of stress out of the whole process. You don’t have to worry about finding somewhere to eat, or renting a car. Everything is provided for you right on the cruise – go rock climbing, ice skating, catch a show, or go for a swim whenever you feel like it, all on the comfort of the cruise.
Visit a Variety of Places
Cruising is also a great opportunity to visit multiple places at once. Going on a holiday and having to pack and unpack several times, as well as travel to all of the different places you want to see can be tiresome. A cruise takes you straight to these places you want to visit on day trips, with the opportunity to stay on board and enjoy the facilities if you want to.
Party To Your Heart’s Content
On holiday, people often worry about who’s going to be the designated driver. There’s no worries like that on a cruise, as you can drink as much as you like and then stumble back to your room later on! There are absolutely no worries about getting lost or not getting home. The staff will definitely look after you!
Entertainment and Facilities
One of the best reasons to go on a cruise is the fact that it’s such a fun experience. All kinds of entertainment is provided for you, and there’s something to do at all times of day. Relax, be adventurous, or have relaxation and adventure days mixed up. Take advantage of your time on the cruise, and you can have your dream holiday. You can’t get bored on a cruise – it’s just not possible! Tailor your cruise holiday to suit you perfectly and you won’t be disappointed.
Meet Awesome People
Amongst all of the fun you’re having with the facilities and excursions, you’ll meet some great new people. It’s much easier to mingle on a cruise, and you feel much safer. You can easily venture out by yourself without the worry that it could be dangerous. You can make loads of new friends on a cruise; on the deck, in the casino, at the bar – the options are unlimited.
Get Organised With Ease
Another great thing about cruises is that they’re so organised. Normal holidays require a lot of planning but you always know where you’re going on a cruise. Simply book your excursions on the ship and you have your day planned out.
Are you a bit of a foodie? One of the best things about cruising is the fact that you can eat whatever you like, whenever you like. There are many awesome, diverse choices for every meal, and it’s so easy to grab a snack if you get hungry in between meals…but that’s just on the ship! Off the ship, you’ll be able to experience the culinary delights of the country you’re visiting, and enjoy some speciality food. I thoroughly recommend trying as much food as you possibly can on a cruise – be prepared to put on a few pounds, but it’ll be so worth it!
You Can Take The Kids
Need to take the kids with you? No problem, cruises are suited to them to! Some people say that cruises are just for old people, but they’re actually perfect for people of all ages. There are arcades, TV shows, water slides – everything your kids could possibly want. It’s also the perfect opportunity to introduce your children to culture. There are even educational and skill sessions for both children and adults!
Be Treated Like a Star
The customer service you receive on a cruise really is something else. The staff on board go out of their way to make sure that it’s been an amazing experience for you. Your beds are made every day, fresh chocolate on the pillow, and a smile to greet you no matter what time it is. Waiters and waitresses are on hand at any time to top up your drink or bring you some food – it’s the only way to holiday in luxury.
Go on a Themed Cruise
Fancy a themed holiday? They even offer themed cruises; golf, wine and food, history, and photography are all popular options. You’ll have fun exploring your hobbies on holiday and meet some great like minded people.
You’re probably considering going on a cruise holiday by now, and if you aren’t, you must be mad! Cruising is everything you could possibly want or need in a holiday. Don’t hesitate to book up with your family, friends, or as a couple – you’ll love the stress free way you can visit multiple places, and the way you can simply do whatever you feel like throughout the day!
