People love to celebrate their birthday with a week-long vacation on a cruise to their favourite destinations. Perhaps preferred for the more milestone ages, this would be a suitable option to make a week ‘all about you’, as you potentially have 7 or more days to pamper yourself and reap the benefits of all the cruise services. You get to be the life of the party as your 30th birthday stretches over a sufficient time span through a variety of exotic destinations.

This may be a reason to celebrate, or possibly to drown your sorrows. Regardless of the situation, cruises attract an array of people from different demographics with diverse characteristics. In more meaningful terms, you will have vast opportunities to meet other interesting people on favourable cruises. Embrace this occasion and allow yourself to explore new and exciting openings that will arise among your travels.


Many people celebrate their achievements with a night out on the town, or purchase a desired product or toy that will reward them on a great effort in their personal or professional life. Another rewarding thought would be jumping on a cruise and ‘sailing away’. There would be no better way to relax and unwind after a significant achievement in your life, as you celebrate with tropical cocktails and enjoy the cruise hot spots.


If he didn’t ‘pop the question’ on a cruise or you simply haven’t been on a cruise before, honeymoons are a top favourite for many lucky newlyweds. Recently becoming married allows you to take a break from the real world, travel and celebrate with intimacy and seclusion. A cruise allows this as you don’t have to worry about uncomfortable long distance travel, connections or budgeting. Cruises take all these concerns out of the equation and simply allow you to enjoy the beginning of your lives together in sheer luxury and enjoyment.

There are numerous celebratory options to consider taking a cruise for, some more extravagant than others. Think outside of the box and consider the many cruise options Cruiseabout offer on many international levels.
