You may have heard the great benefit of taking a cruise is that you unpack once, & move from destination to destination. While that is really convenient, there are some other wonderful benefits to cruising that you may not know.
Ease. Not having to pack and unpack is only part of it …. It is fantastic to wake up every morning in an exciting new port without having to get on buses, planes or trains to get there. Each day brings a new adventure. You can enjoy ship activities, dining, and scenic views in transit to the next destination.
Value. Cruising is a great value. You pay one price and your room, with dining and entertainment included in that price. You will find cruise ships offer great cuisine as part of your cruise price, including a choice of formal meals in the main dining room, buffet spread available three times per day, grab a burger or pizza poolside or order room service.
Variety . There are so many new cruise ships with all different kind of activities and styles. Anyone can find a cruise that fits their dreams and their wallets. Cruise destinations vary from sun and fun, to educational, to wildlife and adventure and everything in-between.
Entertainment . There is no end to the entertainment on cruise ships. You could keep yourself busy all day everyday with the different shows and activities. Families traveling together have all sorts of options. Many ships have children's "camps" that entertain the kids and let parents enjoy some time on their own. Many of the ships also offer lecture series that allow passengers valuable insight and history about different destinacies or other exciting topics.
Social . For outgoing people and even those that are shy, cruising affords the opportunity to meet some fascinating people. By dining at a large table, you have time to get to know one another through the cruise. Many people have found great friends on board that they remain in touch with for years after. Some people have even been known to cruise again with their new friends they met on a cruise. Do not worry, if you are looking for a romantic dinner for two rather than socializing you can normally arrange that by speaking to the maitre'd or eating at one of the specialty restaurants on board.
Whatever vacation and destination dreams you have, there is a cruise that will meet your needs.
