Find out 5 reasons to go on a cruise this year
Have you been taken with the cruise revolution? Gone are the days when cruise holidays were only associated with the very wealthy or those with plenty of time on their hands. Today, a wide variety of people are taking to the seas and exploring the globe from the comfort of a luxury ship. Astrid knows all about the perks of cruising no matter what your budget or interests are. Here, she outlines her top 5 reasons to go on a cruise for your next holiday.
Value for money
The main advantage of choosing a cruise is value for money. You pay a set price straight off the bat and can relax in the knowledge that the bulk of your spending is done then and there. Some people even choose to pre-book meals so that they don’t have to splash the cash on board. I always find myself struggling to spend the money I bring along with me.
Variety of destinations
Hotel-based holidays can’t compete with the excitement of a cruise. Waking up in a different location every day really is an unbeatable experience. Imagine falling asleep in vibrant Miami and waking up in the easy-going Bahamas. You can choose an itinerary to suit your interests and dream destinations.

Child friendly holidays
With a host of child-friendly activities on board, cruises are a really great option for families. You can relax in the knowledge that your little ones are kept entertained while you can soak up the sun on the top deck. Cruising is also a great way of introducing children to new cultures and helps to open their eyes to new ways of life.
Meet new people
You’ll be as taken with the amazing people you meet on board as with the incredible destinations themselves. Cruises are a fantastic way of making new friends. Unlike traditional holidays, on a cruise you are very likely to bump into the same people time and time again. With singles functions organised throughout the cruise, solo travellers are also catered for.
So there you have it, my top five reasons to go on a cruise. Not to mention only having to pack once – a definite advantage! Choose a cruise for your next getaway and I promise you won’t regret it.
