Top 10 reasons to take a cruise:
# 1 VALUE … One price buys your stateroom cabin, fabulous dining & meals, shipboard activities, entertainment and more. No guessing what your vacation will cost in the end.
# 2 FUN & ROMANCE … Secluded beaches, en suite dining on a balcony overlooking the ocean and spa services for two are just some of the romantic options available. Couples and Honeymooners will find a cruise to be one of the most romantic vacations ever!
# 3 FABULOUS CUISINE … Tantalize your taste buds with gourmet fare and specialty dishes featuring exotic ingredients. Most ships even offer old standbys like pizza and ice cream or most ships offer spa cuisine for a healthy alternative. Depending on your mood, dine in a traditional luxurious dining ballroom setting, a small bistro or a casual eatery. There are many choices on cruise ships.
# 4 VARIETY … With hundreds of distinctive ships, thousands of ports-of-call and an unbelievable array of places to see and things to do; there is a perfect cruise for you. We suggest that you add pre or post land tours if finances and time permit to make the most out of your vacation. After all, you go all the way to the embarkation port, whether you fly or drive, you might as well see some of the local sights before or after your cruise. We find that we usually want to spend a day or two before the cruise so we are rested and relaxed before boarding the ship and most definitely a few days after the cruise just to wind down a bit before returning home. Then you really feel like you have vacationed. One of the most enlightening cruises ever … cruising through the Panama Canal. One of the most romantic … cruising the South Pacific, Tahiti, Fiji and the Southern Caribbean Islands. A couple of the most rewarding cultural experiences … cruising Europe, the Red Sea and the Nile.
# 5 ACTIVITIES … Fill your days with sightseeing, sports activities, cultural lectures, educational tours led by naturalists and historians or simply lounge by the pool and relax. At night, enjoy live music, discos, dance extravaganzas, musical revues, gaming (gambling) or a quiet evening gazing at the stars.
# 6 SIMPLICITY … Do not come back from your vacation needing a vacation. Planning a cruise is simple; an experienced travel agent can handle all of the details. Make sure your travel agent has taken several cruises. Once you are on board, nearly all expenses are pre-paid... talk about hassle-free.
# 7 NEW HORIZONS … Fall asleep in one destination and awake to a new horizon... and you only have to pack and unpack once!
# 8 PERFECT FOR JUST ABOUT EVERYONE ... Singles, Couples, Honeymooners, Groups and Family vacations. Families love cruising. Children's programs, kid-friendly menus and tours of the ship will keep your children happy, while affording you some time alone. Most all ships have kids club for children from ages 3 and above. Some of the ships have babysitting service available for the special nights like the Captains Dinner. One thing you want to make sure of if you are taking children is that you are booking a ship that offers an excellent children’s program. Although we see this time and again, taking children under the age of 3 isn't the best choice of vacations. Pushing a stroller from one end of the ship to the other constantly is no fun for Mom or Dad and we would highly suggest a land-based vacation if you have children under 3 years old. Just our opinion but based on years of experience with our own children and watching parents try to navigate the narrow hallways aboard the ships.
# 9 PAMPERING … Regardless of your budget, all cruise lines pamper their guests with first-class service around the clock.
# 10 SATISFACTION … It is a fact that cruises have a higher percentage of satisfied customers than any other vacation experience.
