Cruises are profitable
To go on vacation on a cruise is beneficial because its price includes almost everything you need for an incredible journey: food, accommodation, leisure at any time of day and night, as well as transportation to your destination. Prices for the most popular cruise destinations often start at $100 per person per day. This is much less than the amount you would spend on a hotel, restaurant dinner and entertainment.
Some cruise companies offer significant discounts or allow children who share a cabin with their parents to travel for free. Do you want to spend your vacation with chic? The price of a more expensive cruise includes even more pleasant things such as alcohol, soft drinks, tips for staff, ground tours, loans for expenses on board and even flights.
You’ll see a lot of places, and you’ll only unpack your suitcase once.
On a cruise you unpack just once, and then your floating hotel takes you from city to city, island to island. You don’t have to worry about train or ferry timetables or carry a heavy suitcase through cobbled streets. Every morning you will wake up in a new place. Can’t choose between Saint Lucia and Barbados, between Italy and Spain? Why do you have to choose at all? Decide on a destination and visit all the cities you want to see.
It’s convenient to go on a family cruise
Cruises are interesting for people of all ages, from babies to teenagers, from grandparents to grandchildren. If you want to go on a holiday that your 5-, 10- or 15-year-old child will also enjoy, but in which you will also have fun, know that on cruise ships leisure time will be organized for all generations.
Teenagers will hang out separately from playgrounds for young children (and, of course, at a decent distance from adult pools and bars). The teenager will surely enjoy a trip where you can play video games and swim in the pool, meet your family at lunch and on land tours. Parents can even arrange a romantic dinner, because children’s clubs on the liners work late.
You can choose the ship of your choice
In one person’s view, a cruise ship is a huge liner with a climbing wall and an open-air cinema. Another person would prefer a small cozy ship. The third one will want to go on a sailing trip. All of them will be able to choose a cruise according to their wishes.
You’ll have something to do on board
Modern cruise liners are designed to satisfy the needs of the most fastidious tourists. Would you like to pamper yourself in the spa while your spouse plays at the casino? Or lounge in the sun with an interesting book, sending your family to play basketball?
You can attend an educational seminar, wine tasting, computer lessons or dance classes; you can paint ceramics or yoga; go to the dining room, a luxury restaurant, sushi bar, cafe or steakhouse; watch a movie, comedy or dance show or maybe a live performance by musicians. At the same time, no one will forbid you to just relax, waiting for your arrival in another port.
The cruise is easy to plan
The cruise is extremely easy to plan, because the trip already includes both transport and accommodation. Choose your vessel, destination and cabin and, voila, you are ready for your journey! There is no need to look for suitable hotels anymore, there is no need to organize a transfer between the two cities.
You can even ask your manager to find your flight or choose the nearest departure port to make your trip as easy as possible. Cruises are also ideal for groups of tourists.
Cruise companies usually plan how to put a group together in one place so you don’t have to worry about how 20 of your relatives and friends from all over the country can travel together in an organized way. Simply book the cabins in bulk – for this booking you can get various bonuses, up to and including a free trip!
Plan an exotic journey
Always wanted to see Asia, but you were worried about the language barrier? Are you attracted to the Middle East, but the fear of not knowing to break any national traditions and customs has made you constantly postpone your trip? A cruise is one of the easiest ways to see exotic places.
Cruise destinations include the most important cities and the most picturesque villages in a particular area, so you don’t have to puzzle over looking for interesting places in an unfamiliar region. If you feel uncomfortable wandering around in a strange city alone, simply choose a cruise with an experienced guide. You can also team up with more experienced travelers who are easy to meet online or on board to rent a taxi or hire a personal guide.
Cruises are romantic
If you’ve seen the movie “Love Boat”, you know how much romance there is in sea voyages. The wind in your hair, the endless horizon, the sparkling stars – it sounds like a cliché, but in reality it can create an incredible mood!
If you want to bring back the sparkle in your relationship with your spouse, there are plenty of opportunities to spend time together on a cruise – sitting next to the pool, dining together, dancing every night or having a great time on the beach. Cruise lines also offer special tours for newlyweds and spouses with experience. What’s more, you can even play a wedding on board or during one of the stops.
Cruises are about communication
If you like to meet interesting people from all over the world, you will have a great opportunity to make new friends on the cruise. Even before you start your trip you can contact other tourists on specialized forums and gather groups for independent excursions. On board you will meet new people at dinner, in the bar and by the pool.
Your neighbor may be from Paris or London. Your children will also find companions of their own age to play with, so they will not be constantly disturbed by you or their older brothers and sisters. Are you looking for your soul mate? There are plenty of examples of happy long-term relationships that originated during a holiday spent on a cruise.
