Cruising has always been – and continues to be – increasingly popular.
Gone are the days of the misconception that cruising only suited the ‘older’ or ‘more wealthy’ person. There are a plethora of cruises out there to suit all ages and types of holiday-maker, from the single traveller, couples, families with children from babies to teens, through to food and drink connoisseurs and art and literacy lovers.
Cruises offer great value for your holiday, because the fares include nearly everything you’ll need for a fantastic trip: food, accommodation, daytime and evening entertainment and transportation between travel destinations. There are regularly deals on mainstream cruise lines, which are astonishingly cheaper than you’d spend on land for a hotel, dinner and a show. On some lines, children even sail free or at discounted rates when sharing a cabin with two adults. If you’re looking for luxury – many lines are now even more inclusive, with alcohol and soft drinks, gratuities, shore tours, onboard spending credits, and even flights and pre-cruise overnight hotel included in the price.
Unlike many tours, on a cruise, you unpack once and your floating hotel takes you from city to city or from island to island. Each morning, you wake up in a new place and with so many different destinations to chose from, you can pick an itinerary that visits all the cities on your wish list.
From babes in arms to teens, grandparents to grandchildren, cruises are fun for all ages. If you’re finding it difficult to find a holiday that your 4, 10 and 16 year old would all enjoy, (and that has adult activities too) many ships have a huge list of facilities, split by age. There are teen friendly lounges, with video games and movies, supervised activities and play areas for the younger children and parent-friendly pools and bars – all strategically placed so that everyone can enjoy a hassle free trip. Today’s cruise ships are designed to keep everyone happy. You can pamper yourself at the spa whilst your spouse hits the casino, or you can relax in the sun reading a book while your family hit the waterslides. You can go to an educational lecture, a wine tasting, a computer class or a dance workshop; paint pottery, play bridge, learn a language or do yoga; dine at a casual buffet, a fancy sit-down restaurant, a sushi bar, a diner or a steakhouse; and watch a movie, a comedy routine, a song-and-dance show or live music performance. And if all you want to do is nothing while the ship sails from port to port you can do that, too.
The type of cruise ship available varies too. Your ideal cruise ship may be a mega-ship outfitted with onboard rock-climbing walls, waterslides, tennis courts and outdoor movie theaters, or you may prefer an intimate ship with an upscale ambience, or perhaps the experience of a masted tall sailing ship or maybe you would enjoy a smaller river cruiser? All these types of ships exist, from cruising the European Waterways to ice-strengthened expedition ships that travel to the Antarctic – there is a ship to suit all. https://slotsduck.com/slots-basics/play-slots-for-fun/
