If you have never had the pleasure of going on a cruise, don’t deny yourself any longer. For my money, cruising is the best vacation I have experienced. You can see places you have never seen before, while not lifting a finger along the way. The ports are an awesome way to get a glimpse of life in another country. But if you were to choose to stay on the ship during port stops, you still get to see the beautiful shores of exotic places. My favorite aspect about cruise ships is that they are a break from everyday reality. You can make of these trips what you wish. Whether you are into partying or just peaceful rest, a cruise is nothing like everyday life for most folks. Here are ten ways that cruising is a break from reality.
10) Food Quality
The dinners make you feel like you are at a five star restaurant….every single night. You don’t even have to get all dressed up for these dining experiences, though there are a couple of formal nights to let everyone shine.
Great weather even in the winter season. We have taken cruises around the Christmas holiday season and love the warmer climate that we escape to. Weather is never perfect everyday, but the odds are with you on most cruises.
8) You don’t have to do any of the driving
The fact that you don’t have to do any of the driving is a huge plus. No traffic and no gas to buy equals no stress!
7) Staff that actually enjoy their jobs
Smiling staff all around you. In the real world, some service workers are not happy to serve you. But on a cruise ship it is rare to not see genuine smiles from the staff.
6) Great scenery
The sights are amazing. We all need a break from our everyday surroundings. Awakening to three or four different environments in a week is pretty cool.
