1. Amazing and Unlimited Food
All food comes as part of the package. Most ship’s restaurants never close. The variety of cuisine will overwhelm your taste buds.
Cruise cuisine, known for being top shelf, offers different menus daily. You will never eat the same thing twice.
You do have to buy a separate drink package for unlimited sodas and alcohol. Water, iced tea, and lemonade are available at no extra charge.
2. Come for the Food, Stay for the Entertainment
Cruise ships have entertainment for passengers of all ages. You will find casinos, piano bars, and karaoke. You can watch current movies on the big screen while floating in the pool, or lounging on the deck.
If you enjoy stage shows, attend musicals, magic shows, comedy club acts, and other live entertainment. You may attend Cirque du Soleil style shows and ice-skating performances. Believe it or not, there are also parades, dances and more to keep your nightlife hopping.
3. Relax with No Worries About Planning the Next Part of Your Adventure
Many vacations require that you keep up with the agenda. You don’t want to miss a tour or a meal you paid for. You may have to pack and unpack as you move from one place to the next.
Have you ever had to deal with delays on a trip and missed a connection? This can result in extra cost, more packing and unpacking, and missed opportunities.
On a cruise, when you finish your daily activities and wish to rest and dress for the evening, just return to your room. No charge for taxis or other transportation.
You only unpack once. Everything goes with you. When the ship docks, you can choose to visit the area or not.
4. Variety of Destination
The ship is a floating hotel. You will wake up in a new destination every morning. Imagine walking out on deck to find new landscapes and visages every day.
The cruise ship often stops at about 3 different locations that you may visit and explore. You can book onshore experiences through the cruise line. This ensures that you don’t book and pay an unreliable vendor who does not provide the service you wanted.
If you find yourself delayed, for some reason while on shore, the ship will wait for you. This definitely adds peace of mind.
5. You Can Cruise with a Group of Friends or Colleagues
Cruises make a nice group vacation, company get-away, or even conference destination. You do not have to book rooms too close together. With the wide variety of onboard activities, everyone can go do what interests them.
If you travel to a specific location, there is more pressure for everyone to stay together. There may often be an unspoken rule that everyone needs to do the same activities. This may result in stress and frustration, not a vacation.
While on the cruise, you can plan to meet for meals or certain common activities. Yet, everyone has space and freedom to enjoy themselves.
6. Good Family Vacation Option
The family can stay together while enjoying separate activities. Most cruises offer childcare facilities where children can enjoy activities planned for them. This allows the parents to enjoy some vacation time without the children.
Many of the entertainment options are family friendly. This allows everyone to enjoy the time together.
This can strike the perfect balance of family and individual vacations. Everyone comes away happy.
7. Pamper Yourself
What do you think about when you consider the ultimate pampering experience? Do you want a massage or spa treatment? Is sunbathing on the deck your dream?
You may enjoy exercising. The ships have state of the art gyms, pools, and places for running.
Your children can enjoy running, jumping, swimming, and playing under the supervision of qualified ship personnel. This is part of the package.
Finish your day with a relaxing dinner in one of the many dining rooms or restaurants.
