Updated on July 8, 2010

Thinking About Going On A Cruise?

If you are thinking about going on a cruise but are worried about the idea that it is just for old people, then think again. More and more young couples are choosing a cruise ship holiday because of the following reasons:

  • Choice of Fantastic Destinations
  • All Inclusive Plans
  • Excellent Food
  • Wonderful On board Entertainment

Cruise ships now go to destinations everywhere around the world. Depending on the package that you choose, you could have the opportunity to island hop in the Caribbean, visit the Scandinavian landscapes or pop over to Italy and Spain on a European cruise.

With such a choice, it can feel like you get 3 holidays for the price of one with the added bonus of having someone else who takes on the responsibility of ensuring that you get to your destination on time and that you are collected and whisked off to your next holiday stop in comfort and with ease.

Choice of Fantastic Cruise Destinations

When looking at the destinations to choose from you need to look at the different cruise ship companies to see what they all offer. Look at companies like Caribbean Cruises, Disney Cruise Line, Carnival Cruises, Princess Cruises or P & O Cruises.

You are bound to find what you want whether you decide on a luxurious no expense spared vacation or if you are looking for a cruise at discount prices or even the perfect family cruise.

All Inclusive Plans

Cruise ship vacations offer an all inclusive plan which means that your room and board is taken care of.

Most cruises offer 24 hour buffet services and you can eat whatever you like with no extra charge.

Lots of activities are also included in your ticket price so you can be assured of being completely entertained and well looked after for the duration of your vacation.

Cruise Ships Offer Excellent Food

Everyone knows that food is very important and all cruise ships make sure that all their customer's needs are met. Even though a ship may have to serve over 1,000 meals at a time, the food always looks good and tastes amazing. A lot of people have been known to add a little extra weight due to the great food on offer. It would be hard for most people to stick to a diet with so much delicious temptation. Most ships do provide gym facilities and the larger ones also have running tracks for those guests who can’t do without their daily run.

Wonderful Onboard Entertainment On Cruise Ships

All cruise companies know that people like to be entertained so you can get some great theatre shows that have been specially created for the onboard entertainment element of your vacation. A lot of the entertainment staff will be true professionals who have worked in the West End or on Broadway. Did you know that Oscar winner and American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson (fabulous actress in the smash hit film Dream Girls) started her career working as a singer with Disney Cruises? So you never know, you might get to see a future American Idol or X Factor contestant on your vacation.

So that was just a few reasons why you should consider a luxury cruise holiday for your next holiday. Check out everything that is on offer and make your choice.  Happy holidays.

    I must admit a luxury cruise has some appeal - but Id prefer a smaller boat which goes somwhere remote -there are some lovely cruises in far NW Australia - or even a river cruise in Europe
