Truth, Facts and Lies

Who cruises?

Every day, more and more people are discovering the all-inclusive pleasures of a cruise vacation. More singles, families, couples, honeymooners, second honeymooners and groups of friends are sailing away on the vacation of their lives. Last year alone approximately seven million people enjoyed a cruise vacation. So each ship will have passengers from all segments of life. So no matter how old or young you are; single or married; traveling with kids or grandparents; when you sail you will find people sharing similar likes and dislikes.

Isn’t cruising expensive?

Cruising is the best vacation value! There are cruise vacations to suit every budget. Your cruise fare includes meals, your stateroom, on-board activities and entertainment, plus transportation from port to port. You’ll know what your vacation will end up costing you before you go. (Typically, your only extra expenses will be drinks, specialty restaurants, optional shore excursions, and personal services such as massage or hairstyling.) Do a cost comparison of a cruise to the total cost of other vacations. You’ll be amazed!

Motion sickness?

Probably not. Popular cruise itineraries sail some of the calmest waters in the world. In addition, stabilizers on modern ships, availability of advance weather information, and development of effective preventative medications have, for the most part, eliminated the incidence of motion discomfort. Keep in mind, that with the major cost of the new cruise ships, Captains are sure to sail around any storms that could possibly damage the ship in anyway. But if you find yourself feeling a bit queasy, make your way to the pursers desk. Some lines offer complementary seasickness pill but if not they will direct you to the Doctors office who usually offers a pill or an injection to eliminate your symptoms.

Will I get bored or feel confined?

NO WAY! Being at sea gives you a feeling of total freedom that no land-based resort can offer. There’s plenty of room. And it will probably take you two or three days just to discover everything that’s on board. Plus, you get the added adventure of exploring many exciting ports of call.
Cruise ships are floating resorts with all the choices fine resorts have to offer. You can lie back in a lounge chair, breathe in the sea air, soak up the sun, read good books, or watch the ever-changing seascape. If you’re more active, join in exercise or dance classes, and sports contests. Practice your tennis stroke or golf swing, or take some fresh air on the jogging deck. On some of the latest ships, you can ice skate, bowl or rock climb. Plus you can swim, stretch out in the sauna or work out in the gym. You can also see a feature film, attend an enrichment lecture by experts, play backgammon or play bridge. And that’s just when you’re on board!

Aren’t all ships the same?

Far from it! Ships range from intimate and yacht-like to vessels stretching longer than three football fields. You can sail with fewer than 100 fellow guests or with more than 4,000. Enjoy atmospheres ranging from casual to formal, contemporary to classic. You can even choose sail-assisted ships. Enjoy the endless activities offered on a contemporary resort-style cruise, or immerse yourself in the culture of a destination on a special interest cruise.

Is this all too good to be true?

Normally, if it sounds too good to be true, it is. BUT with cruising, it just seems to be getting better and better. Cruise Lines try to out-do each other in service, food and entertainment. The result is better food, service and entertainment on ALL the cruise lines; a no-loose situation for cruise passengers. The one complaint we hear time and again is that cruises end far too soon! Beyond that, it’s hard to find any negatives. All you have to do is relax and enjoy your vacation. Most importantly, every crew and staff member on board is dedicated to making your cruise the best vacation of your life (until you top it with your next cruise!)
