If you are following our website, you probably noticed, that normally we are writing about traveling by plane, bus, train, road trips, etc. Last night, we watched Yucatán movie on Netflix and it really inspired us to explore the “cruise” way of traveling.
A lot of people think that cruises are just for retirees and they don’t consider them when they’re planning a trip. That’s a real shame because cruises are actually one of the best ways to travel. It’s true that there are some that are specifically aimed at the older generation but there are plenty of other cruises that suit all different types of people. If you’ve written off the idea of taking a cruise in the past, these are just some of the reasons that you should reconsider.
The cost of travel can be incredibly limiting. There are a lot of cheap destinations around the world but the chances are, there are places on your bucket list that you simply can’t afford to go to right now. A lot of people also find that they can’t travel anywhere near as often as they’d like to because it costs too much. But a cruise is so much more cost effective than flying somewhere and paying for your accommodation. Everything is rolled into one price and you usually get food and drink included so you don’t need as much spending money. If you search around, you can usually find some great last minute cruise deals online. Compared with the cost of flights and accommodation, as well as your spending while you’re out there, taking a cruise is almost always quite a lot cheaper than a normal trip to the same destination.
Travel is supposed to be your chance to get away from all of the stresses of work and home life and just relax for a week or two, but sometimes it doesn’t feel like that. You’ve got to deal with the hassle of the airport, or plan a route if you’re taking a road trip. Then you’ve got to plan your itinerary for the trip and make sure that you’ve booked tickets for all of the tourist attractions that you want to see etc. Sometimes, it feels like too much hard work when you’re supposed to be relaxing. But with a cruise, you don’t get any of that. You don’t have to worry about getting from place to place and everything is already planned out for you. All you need to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.
They’re More Social
Meeting new people is one of the best things about travel, and a cruise gives you more opportunity to do that. Sometimes, you might meet people while you’re staying in a hotel but everybody is doing their own things. But on a cruise, there is more sense of community because all of the guests are sharing the same schedule. Also you during cruise you can meet people with same interest like you. You can check in internet and find really cool cruises, for example Welcome to Jamrock Reggae Cruise. Have a look of video below.
You Visit More Places
If you wanted to take a 2 week trip and visit a few different countries, it’s going to be expensive to fly between them all. You can drive in some cases but, again, that’s going to cost you a lot in fuel. But on a cruise, you’ll get the chance to visit multiple destinations without the expense of traveling between each one because it’s all included in the low price of the cruise. This is ideal if you want to take a trip to a part of the world that you haven’t visited before and you can’t decide exactly where you want to go.
If you’re still trying to decide where to go on your next big trip, why not consider a cruise?
