Cruise away! Why cruise holidays are the perfect getaway
Published: 05 February 2015
Cruise holidays are a real trend in the travel industry and they are a great way to see more than one destination in a trip. Whether you take a European cruise or travel further afield on worldwide cruises, there are some wonderful experiences to be had.
The Flexicover team look at why cruises for 2015 are the perfect getaway:
At sea is the place to be:
Cruise liners these days offer entertainment and leisure options far beyond your imagination. Some of the big ships boast swimming pools, gymnasiums, tennis courts, casinos, theatres and much more all on-board. So sunbathe on deck, play board games with the family, indulge in glorious food, watch a theatre show or dance the night away, the choice is yours! And all whilst being whisked to the next destination – total bliss!
You get to take your hotel room with you:
Traveling to more than one destination often means checking in and out of different hotels and apartments and packing and re-packing numerous times. On a cruise, you have the luxury of staying in one room for the entire trip whilst still visiting different destinations. So you spend less time re-adjusting and more time having fun and enjoying yourself, after all, that’s what holidays are for!
You get more ticks on your travel bucket list:
Cruises itineraries are designed to give you the chance to see a number of places in one trip. Depending on the cruise you pick, you’ll get to see some of the most famous sights at each stop with a chance to come off the ship and really explore. A great way to tick lots of destinations off your travel list!
They help you stick to your budget:
Cruises are great way to help you stick to holiday budgets. Usually, once you’ve paid for a cruise most of the extras such as food and activities are included. Paying up front allows you to relax and enjoy your time on the actual trip rather than worrying about the cost each time you have a drink or meal.
Whether it’s the Mediterranean or the Caribbean, there are some wonderful cruise deals for 2015. And we bet once you start cruising, you’ll never want to stop!
