Summer 2022 is wrapping up, and with it, you might be thinking about your plans for summer next year. One increasingly popular “post-COVID” option is taking a cruise, and whether you’ve been on one before or not, next year might be the time to go! Read on below for seven reasons why you might love a cruise vacation and why you should plan one for 2023.
It’s all planned for you
One of the best parts of a cruise for many first-timers is that, unlike other vacations, you don’t have to plan anything! All you’re responsible for doing is paying and making it to the cruise ship. Everything from activities to food to stops is scheduled for you, so you can just sit back and have a peaceful vacation without the stress of planning everything.
Visit multiple destinations
Cruises are a simple way to visit multiple destinations quickly, while also having fun between stops. If you’re more interested in seeing as many places as possible instead of spending a week or two in one location, a cruise might be the best pick for you.
You only have to pack one time
Another benefit of visiting multiple destinations on one cruise line is that you only have to unpack your things once. If you planned to visit all the locations on your own, you’d need to pack and unpack your bag for each city you stay in, but this way, you can get your things sorted on the cruise ship and just take what you need for a day trip at every stop.
Tons of activities onboard
Cruise ships have tons of activities onboard, from movie theaters and spas to dance classes and live entertainment. There are enough things to do on any cruise ship to keep you busy for the whole time you’re there, so you won’t feel like you’re just floating on the ocean for a week.
Very affordable compared to other vacations
In addition to being a simple and enjoyable vacationing experience, a cruise can often be very cost-effective compared to planning a vacation on your own. Many cruise lines offer deals for as little as $100 per night, which is often what it’ll cost you just for a hotel on a normal trip! With food, lodging, and activities included, this can be a great way to get an excellent vacation for less.
Meet new people
A cruise is unique from other vacations in that you’re surrounded by the same people for the whole trip, so you have the opportunity to meet people and make new friends. People come to cruises from all over, so you’ll even find yourself meeting people from other countries.
There’s a cruise for everyone
There are so many cruise ship options available that there doesn’t have to be a one-size-fits-all – you can choose a cruise that sounds perfect for you. There are a variety of options for whatever you enjoy doing and whether you’re single or have kids.
