Why We’re Addicted to Cruising
Do you remember when you were a child and felt pure excitement, knowing that Christmas Day had finally arrived? Not only were you surrounded by the company of family and friends, delicious food and colourfully-wrapped presents, you were having the time of your life.
Taking those first few steps towards cruising may feel a lot like this. After a few weeks of waiting and last-minute packing, you’re ready for a voyage you’ll never forget. But what makes cruise vacations such a celebrated and addictive kind of holiday? It’s time to find out!
You’ll Never be Bored!
Instead of lounging around in your hotel – because every tourist attraction seems to have been booked – cruises ensure that your time is spent doing the things you love to do. Do you want a holiday with a slice of adventure? You might find yourself scuba diving in striking coral reefs, hiking through wild forests and discovering ancient ruins, escorted by knowledgeable tour guides! And better yet? You also get ample free time to roam around these ports at your own pace before heading back to your cruise ship. A little shopping and dining would work a treat, right? Once you’re back at sea, the fun doesn’t stop! From swimming pools and pizzerias for the whole family, to casinos and live entertainment with your loved one, there’s never a dull moment!
Did Someone say Food?!
Aside from seeing awe-inspiring sights from every direction, you’ll also be salivating after smelling the aromas coming from the restaurants, buffets and dessert bars of your ship! Take the Pacific Dawn Cruise ship for example - you can tuck right into the buffet restaurant Café del Sol, sample the sweet & sour tastes of Asian cuisine at La Luna, or enjoy an ice cream or cappuccino at the Lido Café! Throw your plans of dieting and skinny jeans overboard, all you’ll need in this trip are your cutlery, napkins and a big dessert plate!
Let’s Talk Luxury and Comfort
After visiting a charming port, devouring a buffet lunch and taking a dip in the swimming pool, a lazy afternoon nap might be on the cards. With soft pillows and blankets, air conditioning and other first-class amenities in your stateroom, you will live and breathe comfort. But not only will you find cosiness in your staterooms and onboard spa treatment. Enjoy the sense of peace and contentment that comes from spending time with friendly and like-minded travellers aboard. After all, what’s better than sharing a few stories and laughs, while sipping on a fine glass of red?
An Experience like no other
Each destination is a fresh snapshot, a one-of-a-kind experience and a new gift waiting to be opened. Forget the hassle of booking flights and researching the best sights to explore; we make sure all these things are included in your package! Do you think you’re a bit of a travel photographer? Perfect. Beautiful countries like New Zealand, Greece or the sunbaked Pacific Islands await you. Starving for a gourmet experience? Wait no more! You can relish fine wine and cheeses while cruising the Bordeaux River! If you just want to dance the night away, you and your friends can get your groove on in the ship’s dance floors and bars! Aside from the great people, glorious sights and delicious cuisine, once the voyage ends, you’ll always cherish the fact that you were part of an unforgettable experience.
