10 Best Reasons to Take a Cruise

10 Reasons Why You Must Experience a Cruise

A wise man once said, ‘man cannot discover the ocean unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.’ Cruising is the best way to add some salt to your traveling recipe. Many Non-Cruisers question, ‘What if I get Seasick’ or ‘I don’t have ‘sea legs’, what then?’ Experiencing a cruise, even for the first time turns many a landlubber into the sea seekers with very steady “sea legs”.

Cruising offers you an opportunity to be sun-kissed daily or wake up in a totally new location every day or so. Wandering from port to port, you are able to enjoy the diverse cultures, the spectacular landscapes, the yummiest foods and you get to meet the most remarkable people.

Here are the 10 reasons which will tell you why the cruises are so amazing.

1. Waking up in a new land

The thought of waking up in a totally different place from the one you went to sleep in the night before is pretty amazing! Cruises allow you to enjoy glimpses of many places with someone else handling all the travel arrangements, quite mind blowing, YES? Cruising is less bothersome than any other kind of vacation or travel plans you can ever experience. No need to carry luggage to every location you visit, no packing and unpacking with every hotel stay, let your luggage stay in your floating closet and allow your senses to enjoy every experience that is laid before you for the taking.

Discover hidden gems in the unique locations that your cruise may take you. Experience cultures never known of before. Meet people who belong to a reality that was not your own before this time. Be molded by this experience and you will never be the same!

2. All inclusive…it is worth the money

Think of it, Broadway-caliber shows, exotic drinks, multicourse meals, in between snacks, multiple pools, energizing hot tubs, fully equipped gyms, comfortable cabins, live music, multiple clubs with varying themes just waiting for you...all of this included in your cruise at no additional cost.

A few items like cocktails, massages, spa treatments and shore excursions will require additional monies but when it comes to comparison, cruising is far less expensive than any of your other vacation plans.

3. Planning is not your headache

Planning a vacation is a nightmare! The thought of coordinating flights, hotels, land transportation, finding affordable eateries, ensuring that every member of your party is in the right place at the right time and in full agreement before you embark upon your vacation is so tiring, you wonder if it is worth taking the vacation because you feel you can rest at home instead of setting course for this unchartered territory.

Let your cruise team think of all the things that would interest you. Let them coordinate all the things that are so fascinating about the ports that you will cruise to. Most cruise lines have their preferred vendors for land transportation and flights are sometimes inclusive in the total cruise price. Because the cruise industry is so symbiotic, that is all players depend on each other for the betterment of the whole, you end up getting the cream of the crop when it comes to various services with minimal cost to you.

So relax and allow the professions to take care of planning your cruise vacation.
