December – March are the wettest months for some of us in the States, and farming is pretty much shut down ’til spring. December – March are also the driest months for most of the Caribbean islands. You see where this is going, right? It might be time to take a luxury cruise. Even if you haven’t considered one before, it’s probably time you did since these long-distance, sight-seeing voyages are so much fun and could be the ideal holiday for you.

Sightseeing made easy

A cruise will enable you to see the world in comfort. All the business of planning your itinerary, meals and accommodation are taken care of, freeing you up to enjoy the wonders of your chosen trip. There are cruises to every corner of the world, some with flights to the start-point and others that take you right around by sea. It’s a great way to get a glimpse of many different places, including ones you might not feel safe visiting independently, and when you’ve seen one part of the world, you can book up to see another (budget permitting).

Luxury

If you’re in need of rest and pampering, you’ll get it on a luxury cruise. With the exceptional food, comfortable accommodation, and relaxing ambiance, you’ll soon unwind and forget the hassles of everyday life. Whether you’re lazing by the pool, drinking at the bar or enjoying one of the onboard activities, you’ll be living the high life.

Entertainment and activities

You’ll be spoiled for entertainment choices on a cruise ship. Events and activities provided will vary from one trip to another, but you can be sure of a rich variety. There’ll be live music, comedy, and movies, for instance, and all sorts of activities to join in, from dance and sports to games and quizzes, and there’s sure to be a gym for working off the big meals. Additional facilities and pastimes may be available, too, with a surcharge.

Social life

You’ll meet all sorts of people on a cruise ship, and many holiday-makers form life-long friendships that way. If you’re traveling with a partner or group of friends, you’ll have opportunities for fun together, away from the crowd, as well as getting to know new people and extending your circle. There’s space for time alone, too, and where better to dream and reflect than out on the eloquent ocean?

Seascape and atmosphere

The sea makes a beautiful backdrop for a holiday, with its many moods and colors and the open sky above. Morning, noon and night, there will be a horizon to rest your eyes on, with the warmth and camaraderie of cruise ship life at your fingertips, too.

Value for money

Cruise prices per person, per night, vary between companies and trips and can look rather high at first glance. But bear in mind that they usually include board and lodging, entertainment, facilities and the journey itself, and sometimes stop-off accommodation, too, when staying overnight on land. Overall, a cruise may not be any more costly than an independently arranged vacation, and may even be cheaper, as well as easier, so do the math and weigh up the pros and cons. On some cruise lines, passengers have reported incurring extra costs, usually for luxuries not covered by the quoted price, such as alcoholic drinks, which can be expensive, and certain facilities, so check these out at the start so you can make informed choices on any extra spending. There will be plenty of free options for you, too.

While the cruise experience is not for everyone, it’s one of the most popular forms of a holiday, attracting fans of all ages, from all walks of life, so make sure you check it out. Whatever type of trip you decide on, make sure it fulfills a dream.

This is one thing on my bucket list. I am worried that I will get sick on the ship. I love the idea of being pampered. I would love to just drive to the port, board the ship and have no worries!




Oh, we are all about…
