Are you ready for the travel experience of a lifetime? Then Cruise can be one of the best options. Although most cruise lovers can identify dozens of things they love about cruising, these 4 things about cruise travel will appeal to almost everyone.
1. Most important decisions are made before you leave home.
Many people have stressful jobs and are very busy. When they get to their vacation destination, rest and relaxation should be their number one priority, not making decisions as to how long to stay, where to stay, where to eat, how to get from one place to the next, etc. Once you have planned the cruise and selected a cruise ship, you are done with the most important decision of visiting. Most cruise lines permit you to select dining options, shore excursions, and spa treatments before you even start the cruise. Therefore, you can just onboard the ship and relax.
2. You only have to unpack once.
The best trick to follow when you're packing for your next cruise is this: Pack light. You'll want to start with the essentials. If your cell phone can take high-quality photos, leave your camera at home. Where clothes are concerned, pack minimally and bring a wrinkle-releasing product that allows you to wear an outfit more than once. Save space so you can travel light.
3. Cruise ships travel the world via the seas, lakes, and rivers.
Cruise ships sail to all seven continents and travellers can enjoy many of the great rivers of the world in addition to the ocean ports. Most important cities of the world are on a cruise itinerary, and other sites can be visited via pre- or post-cruise extensions. Some places like the Inside Passage of Alaska, Antarctica, or the Amazon River can best be seen from a ship.
4. Food, service, and accommodation quality is consistent.
Though some cruise ships are certainly much better than others, you are always guaranteed a good basic level of food, service, and accommodations on a cruise. Room, entertainment, and transportation for less than $100 a day is a great vacation deal. Plus, you can order seconds of any dish you love on a cruise ship; you can't do that in a restaurant.
