Top 10 Reasons to Take a Cruise for Your Next Vacation

Janette Wider

Have you ever wondered why so many people take a cruise for their vacation or come back raving about what a nice time they had the last time they went on one? More often than not, they were already planning their next cruise before they even got off the ship! Read these ten reasons to cruise to see what all the fuss is about.

  1. Cruises offer great value for your dollar – since most everything is included (food, accommodations, entertainment and transport between destinations). You are truly getting more bang for your buck with a cruise – you’ll inevitably have more spending money for your activities that cost money on and off the ship.
  2. See more destinations and only have to unpack and repack once! When you’re traveling on land seeing multiple destinations requires you to unpack and repack your belongings each time you go to a new destination but on a cruise ship, you’re staying in your transportation so there’s no need to keep unpacking and repacking when you are heading towards a new destination.
  3. Cruises are extremely family-friendly. No matter what the ages of your family members happen to be, there’s something onboard for everyone. Kids and teenagers will enjoy the kid and teen-friendly activities and hangout centers. Adults will enjoy adult-only spas, bars and pools. Everyone can enjoy time on their own and then meet up with the rest of the family later on for a meal, an onshore excursion, or an onboard show you all want to attend.
  4.  Cruises are great for romantic vacations too. Imagine the wind in your hair as you gaze off at the horizon while you embrace the one you love. You and your special someone can spend time together lounging side-by-side at the pool or at the beach onshore. After a day of activities the two of you can share a meal followed by dancing then retire to your cabin and wake up next to each other in a brand new destination the next morning. It doesn’t get much more romantic than that!
  5. Cruises offer great shopping deals. You can find some great bargains and deals on clothing, accessories, gifts for friends and even your favorite spirits onboard. Not to mention that when you’re onshore in an exotic location you can pick something up that you may have never had the chance to unless you were cruising! Be sure to check with the cruise line about any limitations that apply.
  6. Meeting new friends is easy while you’re on a cruise. If you’re a social butterfly, a cruise is a great vacation for you. With people from all over and all different walks of life traveling together on one ship, you’ll be sure to make friends easily. If you meet some people you really get along with well, plan to meet up on another cruise (which is great if you live far away from each other). You never know who you’ll meet on board; you could walk away with a new life-long friend!
  7. The food is amazing. Cruise ships are known for their plethora of amazing cuisine. If you want it – they have it. There are ‘round-the-clock buffets to elegant dining options. The hard part will be choosing what to eat!
  8. You won’t feel stranded in the ocean – being onboard is like being in a city. Being aboard a cruise is kind of like being in your own little city. There’s shopping, bars, restaurants and plenty of things to do. There’s also cell phone service and wireless internet available for those who don’t want to feel too disconnected – although, you may be having too much fun to even think about answering your emails!
  9. Do a lot or a little – it’s up to you. Whatever you want to do on your cruise is up to you. Want to try to do every activity onboard? Go for it. Want to just relax for the trip by the pool or on the beach onshore? That’s great too! Your cruise experience is what you make of it.
  10. Cruise vacations are super easy to plan. Your transportation and accommodations are packaged together, making things a lot simpler. Other than choosing what cabin you want you can spend your time planning what you may want to do onboard or onshore, which is a lot more fun than trying to figure out flights, car rentals, etc. (Cruises are even easier to plan with Coast to Coast Grand Getaways help!)
