4 Reasons Why You’re still the Best Option-Ted Blenkers tells us about all the advantages that cruise travel had compared to traditional shore vacations.
Visit many destinations. Unpack once
This is possibly the great advantage of cruising. Few traveling experiences (I did not find another one) allow the traveler to unpack once, and transport times are also fun. Only a cruise allows you to travel with your hotel everywhere. Your boat will take you from city to city, from port to port, and it will avoid the lost times of airports, transport to hotels, checkings
You spend all this time resting and enjoying your vacation. There are few sensations better than waking up each morning in a different place without unpacking your bags.
Boats for all types of travelers
Each traveler is unique in its kind, and each type of vacation is configured around the type of traveler. There are so many styles, sizes and classes of cruise ships that you will always find a ship that is tailored to the experience you are looking for. There will be those who prefer large ships with a multitude of activities on board, great Broadway shows, countless restaurants, while others will choose smaller ships that take priority on the itinerary, less visited ports, expeditions to remote places, with fewer passengers.
They are easier trips to prepare
Once you choose your boat, itinerary and cabin, you have 80% of the trip prepared. Just transport them to the port, and if you feel like it, what you will do on the different scales if you decide to explore them. There are different ways to organize excursions in each port. From doing it with the shipping company itself (more expensive but with less stress), with external agencies, or for free. In any case, you take the stress out of conventional vacations, since you will not have to balance flights with hotels, transport, reservations …
While you are en route to your next port you will have thousands of options on board to fill your vacations. The hard part will be choosing from the multitude of activities designed to make you enjoy your cruise experience.
You travel more, you enjoy more, you pay less
Even though the cruise industry has evolved by including certain extra costs for new services, it is possible to have a perfectly good experience without those extras. Many cruise passengers forget that they are an option.
Traveling on cruises offers great value when it comes to preparing our vacations because almost all major travel expenses are included, known, and delimited before starting. Food, accommodation, entertainment, and especially transportation. If you calculate the cost per person and day between a normal vacation and a cruise the result is surprising.
