Why You Should Choose a Cruise

Sponsored by Princess Cruises

If you’ve never taken to the seas for a cruise vacation, it’s high time for your maiden voyage.

Today’s cruises are unlike any other kind of travel, offering more amenities, more entertainment, more dining options, and more new, exciting onboard and onshore experiences than ever before.

A cruise vacation offers you the convenience of an all-in-one vacation package. You only need to unpack once, even if you are traveling for days, weeks or months across the world. Learn, explore, and relax at your temporary home away from home, while your ship’s staff takes care of all of the cooking and cleaning. Usually, your only extras are upgraded amenities, like a beverage or premium dining package. So, you do not have to deal with the hassle of paying for extras at every turn.

Cruising is a popular option because everything is included in your cruise fare; all meals, snacks, entertainment, games, activities and most sports and fitness activities, making it a great deal. You will enjoy perks like celebrity chef-designed culinary delights, Broadway-style nightly entertainment, enrichment lectures, poolside movies, sparkling cities, charming villages, sugar sand beaches, iconic landmarks, astounding natural wonders and comfortable accommodations to replenish you for your next day’s adventures. On most ships, there are also special children’s programs, gyms, exercise classes and pampering spas.

A World of Choices

Princess® calls on 300 ports worldwide. From the laid-back colorful island paradises of the Caribbean to the old-world wonders of Europe. The most popular choices for first-time cruisers are Alaska, the Caribbean and Europe. Many cruise lines also offer cruisetours that combine a cruise with a multiple night land tour deeper into destinations that cruise ships can’t reach.

So Much to Savor

Cruises offer something to satisfy everyone’s taste. You’ll find several restaurants to choose from, plus cafes and bars. Order breakfast in bed, a buffet for lunch, a snack from a salad bar and a delicious mouth-watering dinner, with taste-bud tempting choices from Teppanyaki to Asian Fusion, American classics, and everything in-between.

That’s Entertainment

Your cruise fare also offers you plenty of entertainment, from variety shows to concerts. Not to mention lectures by naturalists, cultural experts, and historians. You can also learn a new skill when you sign up for classes, such as cooking and painting.

Stately or Cozy Staterooms

Pick your stateroom style. Ranging from small and comfy to elaborate and expansive. If you truly want to all out, book a suite with a private balcony.
