READY TO SET SAIL?
According to a recent report by Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), cruising has grown by 22% over land-based vacations. What are the reasons why you should take a cruise? Travelers are looking for a vacation that provides something more: more fun, more entertainment, amazing food and more than one destination to explore during their vacation! You’ll find all that and more when you choose a cruise.
Why are cruises the best? There’s really no better time than now to take a cruise as it truly is one of the best vacation values for your dollar. You’ll be pampered the entire time you’re on board plus a cruise vacation can be relaxing, revitalizing or exhilarating, the choice is yours to make as you can do as much or as little as you want. Let’s take a look!
1. Stress-Free Planning Means I Want to Take a Cruise
It’s such a relief when you don’t have to worry about the logistics of your vacation! A cruise is a convenient way to visit multiple destinations while avoiding all the anxiety that can come with dealing with local hotels, restaurants and transportation. There’s no more driving around in the middle of the night looking for a hotel, no maps to follow and no need to worry about finding a decent restaurant.
2. Enjoy Multiple Destinations While Only Unpacking Once
More importantly, a cruise vacation allows you to unpack and get settled in your cabin without the hassle of having to move your belongings as you generally would when you’re visiting multiple destinations. To us, there’s nothing more annoying than just getting settled in to a hotel, and then having to pack up everything once again, all in the name of traveling to the next destination.
3. Health Benefits of Taking a Vacation
According to CLIA, taking a cruise may be beneficial for your health! Besides options for healthy dining, down time/activities, relaxation and socialization, a cruise experience incorporates sunshine, fresh ocean air and the benefits of salt water, whether it be in the ships’ pool or on a tropical beach. And did we the mention the pampering? There’s nothing better for your health than feeling happy.
4. Great Value Cruises
A cruise is a vacation that offers great value for your money! You’ll pay one flat fee which maximizes your hard earned vacation dollars, plus a cruise includes meals and quality on board entertainment. You can also pre-pay for any shore excursions which means you’ll be able to stick to your vacation budget.
5. Cruise Fun for Everyone with Plenty of Onboard Options
Whatever your age or activity level, you’re sure to find onboard options to keep yourself busy, or not, as it’s totally up to you. Most lines have a Daily newsletter that will be delivered to your stateroom every evening which details the next days’ activities, so you’re able to tailor your day to your preference. On board you’ll find everything from pools and a spa, to shopping, a casino and broadway-style entertainment. Are you wondering about your kids? Many of our cruises have fun activities for the whole family!
