Cruise ships are like floating cities on clear blue water. It is fun and exciting for cruise liners offer much more than you can ever expect. With bouts of entertainment, luxurious accommodation and delicious cuisines from all around the world, cruise ships are the poster tot for extravagance. There has been a recent surge in interest in traveling in cruise liners, but many people fear it for simple mysteries that have been doing rounds for so long. Cruising is simple. And the mysteries surrounding them should be broken, for once and for all. Here is thus looking at five most common queries that need to be busted and answered.
Crowd is only when the holiday is
Some of them might be crowded, but most of them are not. With a limited number of guest capacities, cruise liners aim at providing an intimate experience for all. The vessels which have a large capacity usually accommodate more than 3000 guests, but the smaller ones offer fewer seats, which makes the travel calm and quiet. Also, except for holidays, cruise ships remains empty during the rest of the year, making them anything but overcrowded.
Age is just a number
It is true that many “old” people love traveling on the cruise, but a typical cruise is for everyone, regardless the age. More and more young millennial are hitting the cruise liners during their vacations due to the variety of activities offered at a comparatively affordable price. The fun component of the ship appeals to all with age not being a boundary in participation. In fact, cruise liners may be the best place where you can find a perfect balance between the old and young people.
No cruise is a snore fest
There is this mysterious notion surrounding cruise ships- they are boring with nothing to do on board. But ask any cruise-lander and they will give you contradictory reports. For many people, the cruise itself becomes a destination. There are a plethora of activities on board and offshore, keeping you entertained all the time. You can take up classes with experts (maybe learn some culinary tricks as well) or catch a glittering show in the evening. Some ships have jogging tracks, and some offer adventurous activities like zip line, all on board. All the activities will be displayed on the itinerary of the cruise ship packages. And guess what, most of them are free.
Everything is inclusive (including alcohol)
The activities you indulge in, both on the ship and on shore, are usually covered in the price package (they come with the inclusive all tags). The food you eat, the water you drink, the alcohol you consume; all is sponsored by the liner. Yes, if you want to spend some extra bucks in buying souvenirs or for that double scoop of ice cream, it is your choice. But in reality, the amount of money you pay for your vacation covers accommodation, food, and activities as well. And guess what, alcohol is pretty cheap up here as well. Maybe, you can even score a “gratuity” drink from the crew for being nice!
Latest equipment eases your travel
Another mindless mystery shrouding a cruise ship is the easiness in travel. Most people cancel their vacations for the fear of getting seasick. Not if you have motion sickness and get all crazy in cars and planes as well, you will not be seasick. Cruise ships come with stabilizers that minimize the rocking motion. This ensures a smooth journey for all the passengers on board. If the weather conditions are favorable, then your chances of getting seasick are minimal. However, for precautionary methods, you can use anti-seasickness wristbands which are pretty effective.
