Travel insurance at affordable premiums

Why choose a cruise holiday?

Going on a cruise is a very popular way to travel, and you may be interested in trying it for yourself. But why should you choose a cruise over another type of holiday? Here are a few reasons that may help to convince you.

One trip with many destinations

One of the best things about going on a cruise is that you will be able to see a number of destinations in one trip. The amount of destinations depends on your cruise, but if you go for example on a month-long cruise of the Caribbean you could take in numerous islands.

So if you like the idea of hopping from one place to the next and seeing more on your holiday, a cruise is the way to go.

Less to arrange

With a cruise, there is no need to arrange travel from place to place or accommodation in different destinations. You simply buy your ticket and everything is provided for you.

This can allow you to focus on really relaxing rather than dealing with all the details that can often be stressful on holiday.

You may have to arrange your transport to and from the cruise departure point, but this is often simple enough. You may also want to purchase a dedicated cruise insurance policy like ours at BengoTravel to provide you with peace of mind, but this is up to you.

Good value

A cruise can turn out to be very good value when you take all the separate costs of a standard holiday into account. By purchasing one ticket for everything, you do not have to budget for your meals (apart from some restaurants on board the ship that may charge extra), or your entertainment because you will have a huge variety of things to do on the ship.

Although the ticket may look more expensive than a standard holiday, when you consider everything that is included on it, you may realise that it is a less expensive way to travel.

A cruise for everyone

There are many different types of cruises available to choose from, so you are likely to be able to find something suitable for you and your group. For example, there are:

  • family cruises;
  • luxury cruises;
  • large and small ships;
  • budget cruises.

In addition, there are many itineraries available going to places all over the world, so you are certain to be able to find a suitable trip for you.

Plenty to do

You will never find yourself bored when you are on a cruise because there is so much to do. Depending on the cruise, you may be able to enjoy:

  • swimming;
  • watching a film in the cinema;
  • watching a show;
  • the casino;
  • working out in the gym;
  • relaxing in the spa.

Cruise ships are known for providing excellent facilities – just take a look at the huge water park on the new Norwegian Escape. And then you also have all of the land-based activities that you may want to enjoy when you stop off in various destinations.

A sociable way to travel

Another benefit of cruises is that they are a sociable way to travel. There is a good chance that you will meet lots of likeminded people on your cruise, and this can make the experience more enjoyable as well as lead to long-term friendships.

Choose a cruise for your next holiday

Cruises have a lot going for them and they can provide you with the perfect holiday. If you want to try one out for yourself, start planning well in advance and find the perfect cruise for you to make your first experience a positive one.
