I’ve traveled many different ways: on road trips, backpacking around the world, staying in high-end hotels and even doing tours. The truth is some types of travel are more relaxing than others and going on a cruise holiday is a great way to really relax and focus on creating special memories with your loved ones. I personally love going on a cruise and there are so many reasons why it’s a great type of holiday, so I wanted to share with you 4 reasons you need to experience a cruise holiday.
1. No Packing and Unpacking
When you’re traveling normally and swapping hotels every few days, you can find yourself spending a large majority of the trip packing and unpacking. This is only worse if you’re traveling with children, especially young children, who cannot pack for themselves. While it’s exciting to explore new destinations, going on a cruise allows you to do exactly that without the inconvenience of packing and unpacking every few days.
2. No Planning Needed
With a cruise you just show up and your itinerary is already chosen. While you obviously get to make decisions about what you’ll do every day and what excursions you’ll take, you don’t have to worry about what hotel to stay in, how many days to be in each location and how to get between locations. It’s the ultimate in relaxing holiday which means you can just focus on enjoying your time with your loved ones.
3. Easier With Kids
If you’re traveling with kids, you’ll be surprised by how many fun activities cruise ships tend to have for them. There are usually some kind of kid clubs which the kids love to go on. It will give you a few precious hours of free time to enjoy with your spouse or adult family members. There’s generally lots of fun things like movie rooms, swimming pools, water activities and so on for them to do together as well. Check into your specific cruise holiday to see what will be on for children to make sure they love the cruise holiday as much as you do.
4. Simple Pricing
One of the things I find challenging about traveling is trying to figure out a budget, after all there are so many variables on a daily basis that can dramatically change the cost of the trip. For example, you don’t know exactly how much you’ll spend on food, transport, and entertainment. With a cruise all these prices tend to be included so you can know your budget well before the trip. This means no time spent worrying if you’ve gone over budget or how much you should tip. This provides me with extra peace of mind I love!
Taking a cruise holiday is a fun way to spend time with your family while relaxing and having a holiday that feels like a holiday.
