There are a hundred reasons why I think everyone should go on a cruise, but I don’t think anyone has time to sit and listen to me waffle on for what could very easily turn into days of cruise talk. With that said, I’ll share some of my top reasons as to why you should go on a cruise.
There is so much choice when it comes to cruising, there’s probably five times as much choice than any new cruiser first realises. You can tailor-make your experience from start to finish, you can do as much or as little as you like, and you can pick your own level of luxury. What’s not to love about that?
The destination options with cruising are endless, there is so much you can see and do. Do you want to go to Antarctica and follow in the footsteps of famous explorers? No problem. Maybe you want to just enjoy a week or two in Europe, exploring cities that are closer to home and offer a bit of everything? If so, that’s also an option. You can go as far as you like, and in many cases, for as long as you like. Did you know that cruises range from 1 night all the way to 170 and more?
Whether you’re travelling with family, friends, your partner or on your own, you’ll still have an abundance of choice when it comes to ships and what kind of facilities you’re looking for when onboard. There are ships that have been built specifically for family fun and they feature things such as water parks, dodgem cars, race tracks, ropes courses and much more. On the flip side, there are also ships we’d refer to as more traditional, where sea days can be enjoyed out on the open decks, listening to expert guest lecturers or even playing shuffleboard on the promenade deck. Remember what I said earlier, you can tailor-make your entire experience before you even step aboard.
One of the biggest appeals in recent years for many holiday makers looking to embark on a cruise has been the level of choice, in both ship and destinations, on no-fly sailings. What is a no-fly sailing? Well, it’s exactly as it sounds, it’s a cruise that sails from a UK port and then back to a UK port, there are many cruise lines that offer these sailings. No-fly cruises are always my first choice and destinations are far from limited, contrary to what some people think. I’ve been around the world thanks to no-fly cruises and there’s nothing stopping you from doing it.
These are just a few of the reasons why I think everyone should at least try a cruise. I hear lots of people shout it down before even stepping foot onboard. I was one of those people and now I can’t spend enough time at sea.
