10 great reasons to cruise

10 great reasons to cruise

For most of the twentieth century the notion of cruising conjured up images of a lifestyle straight out of Downton Abbey. In truth, cruising today debunks all such myths that cloak this unique escape.

 

  1. Being at sea, surrounded by luxury, is akin to membership of an exclusive club where sunrises spread across the edge of the world as you to be caressed by the gentle rise and fall of the hull.

 

  1. On a cruise, your ‘hotel’ floats from place to place, allowing you to see many points of interest on a single trip, and the arranged excursions mean you can make the most of the destinations you visit. There’s the added benefit of only having to pack and unpack once.

 

  1. Cruise ship service is legendary, and for good reason. Crew members are dedicated to providing courteous, friendly and attentive service to all guests, whether your cabin is the most economical or the most expensive on the ship.

 

  1. Meals, activities and entertainment are included in the cost of your cruise. That makes it easy to budget for extras such as alcoholic drinks and tips - some cruise lines even offer great value inclusive packages.

 

  1. Cruising is an opportunity to broaden the mind and absorb a wealth of culture with on-board enrichment lectures that are more a genteel romp through history than brain aerobics.

 

  1. Excursions are more comprehensive than whistle-stop tours from fountain to forum, ruin to relic, museum to monument, gallery to ghetto, cathedral to catacomb.

 

  1. A highlight of cruising is cuisine. Epicurean delights are a regular feature of the creative and comprehensive menus. Some ships even have speciality restaurants featuring Oriental, Italian, and French culinary delicacies.

 

  1. Large cruise ships are brimming with facilities. Day-time diversions include swimming pools, deck games, sports, and activities; while evening entertainment such as top-of-the-bill West End-style shows, comedians, game shows, music and dancing keep everyone busy.

 

  1. Many cruise-goers love the company of fellow travellers at large dining tables when they can share stories and experiences. Those who prefer their own company can dine at the time of their choosing - tables for two are available, just speak to the maître d’.

 

  1. Lavish spas on cruise ships are better than their land-based counterparts. There’s the chance to indulge in an array of therapeutic treatments to restore and revive – not to mention atoning for any over-indulgence at the buffet!
