While not everyone automatically thinks about going on a cruise when planning a holiday a cruise can be a lot more fun than you think. The idea of going on a cruise may make you think of ships that are crammed with elderly people playing deck shuffleboard and enjoying early evening dances, this is far from reality.
Cruises these days cater to everyone of every age and they are usually a lot more fun thank you think. Let’s take a look at a few of the reasons why you’ll love going on a cruise:
You’ll get Great Value for Money
The reality is that you will get great value for money if you choose to go on a cruise. This is because the price you’ll pay to get aboard the ship will include your accommodation, most (if not all) of your meals and a lot of entertainment. Compare this with going on a ‘Regular’ holiday and it’s likely that you’ll find it much cheaper. In addition to not having to pay out for your meals, it’s likely that children under a certain age will either sail for free or get a discounted rate if they share the cabin with you and one other adult.
Family Friendly Cruise Ships
Unless you opt to travel on a cruise that only caters for adults, these days cruise ships are very family friendly. Ships now have activities and facilities that cater to your little ones, and quite often they have teenage-designated spots, which helps to keep everyone happy. If you want to go on a family friendly cruise it’s highly likely that you’ll find a ship that has something for everyone.
You Only Need to Unpack Once
Let’s imagine you’re going on a tour of Europe, for example, and you want to visit as many countries as possible. You will have to work out how you’re going to get to your chosen destinations and you’ll also have to unpack all of your luggage when you get there. When it’s time to leave that destination you’ll have to pack your bags and unpack them again later. This can become quite monotonous but it isn’t something you need to worry about if you go on a cruise. When you reach your cabin for the first time you can unpack everything there and then knowing you won’t need to repack anything until your cruise has come to an end. Wonderful.
Ships are like Floating Cities
Ships can be somewhat like floating cities in that they have WiFi, medical centers, shops, restaurants, laundry facilities, cinemas, discos, swimming pools and more. This means you won’t need to look for something to do or somewhere to go when the ship is sailing to its next destination, keeping you occupied every single moment of the day.
You’re almost guaranteed to love going on a cruise thanks to the great value for money, their ability to cater to everyone, the fact you only need to unpack once, and that ships are like floating cities. Why not think about going on a cruise? You could have a lot more fun than you ever imagined.
