Reasons why you should consider a Cruise Holiday

Reasons Why You Should

Consider A Cruise Holiday

by Paul and Carole

My love for a cruise holiday began nearly 30 years ago when I had the opportunity to work as a nurse on Celebrity Cruises, however it took me many years to talk Paul into trying this type of holiday. He eventually succumbed and we took our first cruise on the Navigator of the Seas in 2009, since this time we have cruised 13 times and know that we will continue to cruise as long as our budget and health allows.

Our first cruise holiday on the Navigator of the Seas

We still speak to lots of people who feel exactly the same as Paul did and will not consider a cruise holiday. We have put this post together to explain why you should consider going on a cruise holiday, and see if this type of holiday would be for you.

Waking up in a different location every day

Even though you are visiting many destinations you only have to unpack once on a cruise holiday. Waking up in a new country or destination is really exciting and still amazes us. I particularly love watching the sail in which is often early in the morning, however it is sometimes difficult to drag Paul out of bed!

Fine dining with exceptional service

We can’t afford to eat regularly at really expensive restaurants at home so we really enjoy the fine dining that is available on board.

Some people worry that they will have to dine with strangers but this is not the case unless you choose to do so. We prefer to have a table to ourselves, however, on times we have shared and had a fabulous evening. We have met some excellent people who we are still in touch with today.

A cruise holiday gives you the opportunity to try foods that you have never tried before, and if it is not to your taste the waiters will not be offended and get you something else to try.

The service we have received in the dining rooms has been superb and we do enjoy getting to know the dining room staff. It feels quite special to be cared for by such attentive staff who remember your names and what your preferences are. The attention to detail is second to none.

Excellent Live Entertainment 

Whether you enjoy classical, singing, dancing, ice skating, acrobatics, magicians, west end types shows or street parties, they can all be found on cruise ships.

We have seen some fantastic acts over the years including Jimmy James, Darren Day, and an excellent Queen tribute act called The Bohemians. There really is a variety of entertainment to suit the majority or people.

There is something quite special about the sunrises and sunsets at sea. Dragging Paul out of bed is sometimes a struggle but he always admits it is worth it in the end!
