If you haven’t yet been on a cruise, you’ve been missing out. This is a fun, stress-free way to travel, and it continues to grow in popularity each year.
Here are a few reasons why you should consider cruising in 2019:
When you begin planning a vacation, it’s easy to see how the costs can quickly begin to add up. Not only do you have to pay for transportation, accommodation, entertainment, and excursions, but you’ll also be paying for food and souvenirs. Cruising is almost entirely all-inclusive, and your cruise fare includes almost all of the above. You can even pre-pay your gratuities and excursions so you won’t need to reach into your wallet at all unless you decide to buy souvenirs while on land.
These days, you can easily find a good cruise deal online. Be sure to look at least a few months in advance, be flexible with your dates, and be ready to jump on a last-minute deal.
See more in less time
Cruising can take you all over the world, and some cruises will allow you to see almost an entire region. If you’re traveling by plane or train, you’ll be extremely limited as to how much you can see- and you’ll need to spend hours getting from one place to another. When you cruise, you’ll be transported overnight, often arriving at each new destination in the morning. When you have days at sea, you’ll have more than enough things available to keep you busy onboard- including fitness centers, shows, rock climbing walls, dance classes, educational lessons, pools, spas, and more.
Remove the stress
There’s no question that travel is stressful these days. This is particularly true if you’re flying, and/or if you’re traveling with kids. You’ll need to arrive at the airport hours before your flight, go through security, and end up wedged in a tiny seat for hours at a time. Then, you’ll need to make your way to your hostel once you arrive at your destination- often while you’re jetlagged and exhausted.
When you cruise, all of the stressful parts of travel are removed. You don’t need to fly between destination-instead, you’re transported while you sleep. You’ll only need to unpack once and can spend your vacation relaxing onboard and then exploring incredible destinations during the day. There’s no airport security, no need to constantly switch hotels, and it truly is a fun, relaxing way to travel.
