Five Reasons You Should Take Your First Ocean Cruise

Five Reasons You Should Take Your First Ocean Cruise

It’s all too easy to stick to conventional holidays – think beach vacations, or week-long city breaks – and forget about the possibilities beyond land.

Two thirds of the earth is covered by water and, in turn, a whole other side to getaways is just waiting to be uncovered. Ocean cruises take you through the world’s most prized waters, and a whole load of gorgeous ports in the process. Here are five reasons you should take one:

Go Further, Unpack Once

When you book on to a cruise, you’re not committing to just one destination. Far from it, you’ll sail from port to port, and only need to unpack once! Once you’ve made yourself at home in your cabin, kick back and let the magic of the voyage take over. Some cabins are so comfy that you’ll never want to leave, with far-stretching views over the open ocean which make getting out of bed easy. Travel the realms of the ocean in a relaxed fashion, and enjoy the ship’s on-board facilities as you do so…

These days, passengers have little reason to leave the ship itself. Take a wander around the boat, and you’ll come across plush bars and restaurants, shops, and cinemas. Whenever you’re wanting to be a little more active, there’s always gyms and swimming pools, and to top it all off, hot tubs to unwind in afterwards. Some companies even have masseuses at hand, just in case you weren’t feeling pampered enough.

It’s hard choosing a holiday which pleases everyone, especially when you’ve got two kids under eight who get restless easily. The second you step aboard a cruise ship, however, you’ll notice that children are well catered for. Kids clubs run throughout the day and evening, and play areas keep the fun coming – both in and outdoors. On-deck pools are filled with slides and floats to keep the party going, whilst there’s no shortage of loungers so you can keep an eye on the kids, and catch some sun while you’re at it.

Tempted by Thailand’s beguiling coves? Drawn in by the luscious shores of India? If you’ve got an itch to travel beyond Europe, but are worried about language barriers, then a cruise holiday could be for you. You can enjoy the region’s scenery from the comfort of top deck, venture off at your leisure, and depart having experienced another culture. Cruise holidays help you tick off numerous locations, as far afield or as close to home as you wish.

A Chance to Make New Friends

There’s a social aspect to cruises that other holidays can’t match. It’s easy to keep yourself to yourself, but you’ll be travelling with your fellow passengers for the course of a few weeks, so there’s plenty of opportunities to socialise. Grab a few drinks by the bar, or enjoy some after dinner entertainment together. These experiences are made to be shared, so make the most of them.

With all that in mind, isn’t it time you started planning your own voyage?
