Planning a vacation is a time of joy for the whole family. Deciding on the destination, dates, accommodations and activities to do is fun but stressful at the same time. But… there’s one option that many people forget to consider: Cruise vacations!
Have you ever wondered why so many people rave about their last cruise? Consider these 10 reasons to make your next vacation an unforgettable experience:
- All in one place
Cruise fares include virtually everything you need for a memorable vacation. You have in one place: restaurants, rooms, daytime and evening entertainment, and transportation between travel locations. Having everything included in one fare will help you cut down on unnecessary expenses.
- Vacations for the whole family
Family cruises appeal to people of all ages, from young children to teenagers, grandparents and grandchildren. If you are looking for a trip that everyone can enjoy, this will be a good choice. Today, in addition to adult activities such as casinos and shows, there are a wide variety of options for the little ones. In addition, there are many activities that you can do with your children in different destinations
Everyone will find a place where they will feel comfortable during their stay.
Many companies even offer reduced fares for children, which will be a great relief for your wallet.
- Cover several destinations in a single trip
Traveling by cruise you will only have to unpack your suitcase once. Being a “mobile hotel”, you will not have to drag your suitcase from destination to destination. You will be able to visit, during the time of the trip, different islands and cities that would be impossible to visit any other time.
One of the most visited destinations by cruise ships is Puerto Rico. An island with endless beaches that will make you fall in love at first sight.
- Unlimited options
A mega-ship with onboard climbing walls and open-air cinemas may be the ideal cruise for one person, while another may prefer an intimate vessel with a luxurious ambiance. Some dream of a nautical experience of a sailboat with masts. Fortunately, all of these types of cruises are available.
- Different activities on board
Today’s cruise ships are built to keep everyone happy. Want to go to the spa while your partner goes to the casino? Cruise vacations offer that possibility. As mentioned in point 2, everyone will have an activity appropriate to their age and tastes.
- Ease of planning
Cruise trips are easy to plan because they combine transportation and accommodations. You choose the ship, the route and the cabin, and that’s it, no need to search for hotels or coordinate travel between cities.
You can even ask your travel agency to book flights for you, or choose a departure port that is close enough to drive to so you don’t have to spend on other tickets.
- Availability of almost everything
Many people think that being in the middle of the ocean by boat is almost like being stuck on an island in the middle of nowhere. Cruise ships are like floating cities with everything you could want. Wi-Fi, cell phone service and satellite TV are available on today’s ships, allowing you to stay connected to the outside world while enjoying your vacation.
- Exotic vacations
If you decide to travel around Puerto Rico you will see that language is not a barrier. Neither are the local customs. Although they may be different from what you are used to, Puerto Ricans are very nice people and will make you feel at home.
You will have the experience of getting to know different cultures and typical festivals that you would not know in other circumstances.
Food will also be a plus. Puerto Rico has a gastronomic variety that dazzles any palate. You’ll want to bring samples of everything to remember this cruise vacation at home.
- Cruises are perfect for couples
Spending quality time as a couple is always a good decision. Both for newlyweds and for those who have been married for several years. The possibility of enjoying together the most varied activities will be a quality time that you will not have easily in another context. You can even request romantic dinners under the light of the stars.
- An opportunity to make new friends
If you like to make friends, a cruise vacation will be your ideal choice. There you will be able to meet people from all over the world and you can establish a friendship that will last the rest of your lives.
What you should keep in mind for your next cruise vacation.
Your next cruise vacation will be a unique experience that you will carry with you forever. But for this trip to be perfect, you must keep these 3 things in mind:
- Check your documentation
You don’t want to find out when you board that you don’t have the necessary documentation and miss your trip.
- Make sure you know what the requirements are for each country you visit.
Many may have different requirements for you to visit them. Check official websites to find out what they are and try to keep up to date.
- Keep your immunization schedule up to date
After the Covid19 pandemic, countries have become stricter on this point. Check if in addition to the vaccinations you must present any extra proof of health.
We hope these 10 reasons have convinced you to enjoy your next cruise vacation, an experience that will mark a before and after in your life!
