One of my personal favorite ways to travel is to take the ocean cruise. Yes, I’m at the age where I can remember the TV show, “The Love Boat”, however, cruising has come a long way from those days. So, let me share my top three reasons why I love today’s cruising and why I believe it’s a great value for your vacation dollar.
3:) Stop and go vacation. Don’t get me wrong, I love to check out a new place, however, if I’m able to check out more than one location while on vacation I’m ecstatic! And what’s even better about a cruise - you don’t feel overly rushed. You can go check somewhere out, have an adventure and then go back to the ship to just sit back and relax. Or if you want to go to an island and just sit back and relax on the ship. To me, it’s the best of both worlds. I get to explore see more than just one location and not feel like I need a vacation from my vacation. What?? I get everything in one vacation… Yes!!
2:) There’s more to eat than a buffet. Now don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy a buffet as much as the next person, and let’s face it that’s what the cruise lines are known for 24 x 7 buffets and food! But today’s cruise lines have so much more to offer! Did you know that they have everything from Italian, French, and even Steak Houses on the ships? Yes, it’s a plethora of quality dining on the ships. Even some of the famous chef’s and restaurants are getting in on the ships. You can still have the dining where you are sitting down at a particular time every night or you can have it where you sit down when you want. You name it, it’s there. Did I mention some ships even have dinner shows? Yes, it’s all there for you.
1:) Resort on the ocean. Yes, this is still my favorite reason to cruise. These ships have it all anymore. Do you like to go rock climbing? Yes, they have it. How about practicing your surfing - yep. Maybe you are a thrill seeker and want to walk the plank off the side of the top the ship? How about zip lining? Maybe a ride on a carousel is more your speed? Now let’s take a break on the waterslides, or play a round of mini golf? Better yet let’s play a game of basketball. Wait - maybe ice skating would be better for you. At night, how about a movie under the stars, or a Broadway play? Do you love a good laugh? Let’s go see a comedy show, or perhaps a dueling piano show. Wait, maybe a concert would be even better. As you can see there are so many options and each ship has its own feel and livelihood. You can get a ship that holds 4,000 people or one that holds closer to 2,500 people. It all comes down to what you are looking for.
