Sailing Into Your Vacations With Style, 7 Reasons To Float Away On a Cruise

If you have never taken a cruise vacation before then this is a post for you, written by someone who has been on over 11 breaks and vacations on some of the finest cruise ships in the world. There are a lot of common misconceptions about cruises such as them being insanely expensive, boring or that you don’t see much of your destination, all of which are untrue. The reason for the post today is to give you just a few reasons why you will fall in love with a cruise holiday, and why you should be on the lookout for offers or a last minute cruise deal.

Multiple Destinations

I absolutely love to travel and explore new places and when you take a cruise that is exactly what you can do, as you visit a number of different destinations. What I enjoy in particular is that the destinations which you generally visit during the cruise, are places which you’d be unlikely to visit on any other type of trip.

Breakfast With a View

Sometimes the simple things are the most special and for me, waking up each morning and drinking a coffee as I gaze across the ocean is something truly wonderful.

Days at Sea

Before my first cruise I was worried that I may get bored on the ship, on those days which are dedicated to just sailing. After my first trip however, I realized that these are some of the best days, because the ships are so well built for you to enjoy your time aboard. These are the days you can relax by the pool, head to the cinema, chat with friends and relax as you float across the ocean.

Price

The first thing to say is that cruise vacations are nowhere near as expensive as you may think and in terms of getting bang for your buck, it doesn’t get much better. For a single price you will have taken care of your accommodation, your transport, your food and most of your activities, an easy and cost effective way to travel.

Experiences

Some of the sights and experiences which you find on-board a cruise ship are simply stunning, and ones which you are unlikely to find on any other type of trip. There are few things more spectacular than watching a school of dolphins swim by your boat or to watch the Northern Lights shoot across the sky in the middle of the night. During your time on-board the ship, there are all kinds of wonderful things to see.

Luxury

Cruise ships seem to have a much higher level of service and hospitality than any other mode of transport which I have traveled on. The level of luxury which you can find here, the pampering and the first class service will be enough to make you want to come back again and again.

Meeting People

Being all together for such a long amount of time, especially on a confined vessel, means that you have plenty of chances to meet a number of new people. What I love most about cruises is that they appeal to all kinds of different characters. One day you could chat with an old couple from Spain, the next with a family from Newcastle, the perfect blend of people for you to meet.

Why not try out a cruise this year? I am sure that you will love it.
