The Top 5 Reasons To Take Cruise Vacations


The service you can expect onboard is second to none. From the lovely warm and friendly first welcome to the everyday greetings and the final farewells. There is also the surprises, such as the towel art in your stateroom and staff/crew going the extra mile to give you that once in a lifetime vacation.

The food onboard is delicious! There is something to suit everyone’s taste buds, from succulent steaks, lavish lobster and everything in-between. You can easily eat from morning through till noon, night and beyond! Have you ever been to the midnight buffet? One of my favourites is the strawberries with chocolate coating. Now not only do you have the main dining room and the buffet area but specialist restaurants such as Giovanni’s Table and Chops Grill.

You might think that you’re stuck out at sea with nothing to do, which couldn’t be further from the truth. There is lots going on with cards/board games, bingo and even singing and dancing in Johnny Rockets. In the evening enjoy the piano playing in the Schooner Bar, lively musicals in the theatre and even aquashows!

Ports of Call

Wherever in the world, you would like to visit, I’m sure there is a cruise ship visiting a nearby port. From Alaska to Xian, which ports of call will you visit?

Forget your bow tie, need to hire a tuxedo or perhaps you need the skills of a tailor? Don’t fret everything has been thought of to make your vacation go as smoothly as possible, with skillful staff and crew on hand to help at a moments notice.

Enjoy once in a lifetime experiences onboard such as visiting the engine room, dining at the captain’s table or perhaps out on a shore excursion discovering something new about the local flora and fauna.
