Cruising is no longer only available to the rich and famous, today’s cruise lines offer excellent value for money. You know straight away what the basic cost of your vacation will be, whereas tailoring your own vacation can incur many unplanned expenses. Consider 10 reasons why cruising is a great way to vacation.
1. Ideal for Singles
There will be no more dining by yourself in hotel dining rooms and visiting sights alone. On a cruise ship, you will be seated with other travelers and given the opportunity to meet people from all over the world and to make long lasting friendships.
2. Unpack Once
Adventurous people want to see several different places during their vacation, which means packing and unpacking throughout their trip. On your cruise ship, you unpack once, yet have all the advantages of visiting different ports in different countries.
3. All Inclusive
On a cruise ship, you have everything you need all in one place, great accommodation, delicious food and professional entertainment. For sun lovers, there are plenty of loungers usually located on the top deck or around the pools.
4. Onboard Entertainment
Royal cruises include everything, a stateroom with private bathroom, all meals with a choice of several dining options, shops with great bargains, quiet nooks for reading or playing a game of cards, and bars and theaters for entertainment.
5. Visit Multiple Destinations
Cruising gives you the opportunity to travel to islands or countries you have considered visiting, but were unsure about. Spend a day or two exploring these places, form your own opinions, discover the pros and cons and not have to rely on other travelers’ reviews.
6. The Kids Are Fine
Parents can have a great vacation knowing their children are having the time of their lives in special kid’s clubs, taking part in organized games, and in the care of professionals trained in childcare and emergency, medical treatment.
7. Great Food
Gone is waiting in airports and eating unpalatable plane food. With Royal cruises, you have the choice of dining in a themed dining room, eating from a buffet, treating yourself to a meal in one of the premium restaurants, or just ordering room service in your cabin.
8. Forget Hire Cars
Say goodbye to the hassle of booking rental cars and hotels and wondering if you will make your next destination on time. Once on board your ship, you can relax and look forward to your first port of call.
9. See the World
Cruising is no longer confined to visiting a bunch of islands, but gives you the opportunity to see countries you would normally not visit on your own. Nowadays, cruises take you to popular European destinations, the Amazon and even exotic Africa and China.
10. Stress Free
Remove all stress from booking a vacation. Select the itinerary you want and turn up at your cruise port on your designated day. No more delays waiting for trains, buses or airplanes, your floating hotel will sail you from port to port and all you have to do is enjoy.
