You may be able to think of a million reasons why a cruise is not for you, from seasickness, to pirates. But, don’t let your fears keep you from what could be the experience of a lifetime. Here are five reasons why you should book a cruise regardless of your age – because cruises really are for all lovers of travel!
Cruises were the original all-inclusive vacation destination. What is included in your package depends on which cruise line you travel with, however most cruise packages include food, accommodations, transportation, and both day and evening entertainment in the fare at a fraction of the cost that you would pay when booking a traditional trip.
In addition to all that is included in your cruise fare, there is also the quality aspect of the overall value. Since cruise lines buy in bulk and have experts do the purchases and planning you get the added benefit of each piece of your trip being managed by a professional.
Most cruises hit more than one destination. The great part about this is you get to not only enjoy the travel time doing things you like to do, but don’t have to lug around a suit case and sit in uncomfortable seats on a plane or train while getting to your next destination. Convenience makes it an easy option for you to go on a cruise around the world.
Great for the Whole Family
Cruises offer activities for individuals of any age, making them perfect for those groups or families that have multiple generations to keep occupied. It is an easy way to have everyone in the same general area while allowing each person or pod to go do something they enjoy while you do something you enjoy.
All cruises are not the same. There is a wide range of cruise types available, everything from singles cruises, to family cruises, to river cruises. This provides you with more options than you had ten or fifteen years ago when selecting the right cruise for you. Not only are their different types of cruises. There are different length cruises that range from three days to three weeks, making your options nearly endless.
Cruise ships are basically floating cities. So, you can always get whatever you may need when you are at sea or in port abroad. When traveling the traditional way you may not have access to these same amenities, services, or products. This makes cruise travel the easiest to deal with for those who are nervous about being away from home and their normal comfort items.
Planning a vacation is one of those things that you both enjoy and dread at that same time; between costs, booking hotels, travel and transportation, and attempting to figure out what your daily expenses for food and entertainment will be it can be overwhelming. Cruise travel is one of the easiest ways to book a fun filled, relaxing vacation without all of the stress and extensive planning.
