Is Cruise a Better Vacation Option Traveling?
Vacation Option Traveling!
Ever heard of a floating, multi-story, five star hotels? Of course you haven’t, because we don’t call them hotels, but we do call them cruise ships. A cruise ship is basically a passenger ship which offer voyages for the sake of pleasure, not at the destination but on its way to the destination. These cruise ship voyages are the basic theme of going for a cruise trip. A particular cruise voyage may have many ports of call, where the anchor and guests are allowed to visit the port city. While at port of call, the cruise ship acts more like a hotel. Depending upon the days of the voyage, a cruise ship may stop at a port for few hours or 1 – 2 days. I had a chance to go on a cruise ship around ten years ago. I specially took the picture of whole ship before boarding, got itframed on large canvas prints and hung it in my living room as if I got a big fish by myself. Anyhow, after few months I took down the frame and that frame is in my kid’s room now.
After my first voyage, in last ten years I have went on cruise ship almost every other year. My longest voyage on a cruise ship was of 21 days and it was as brilliant as it can get. The question if opting for cruise ship for Vacation Option Traveling is a better option can be answered only with the amount of budget you have with you. Though they are some cheap cruise ship fares available but mostly cruise ship travel is a bit expensive. A five start cruise ship is more than a five star hotel. The experience on the cruise ship is like a big family get-together. Of course there are first class rooms and royal suites in their but then there is class system everywhere you go. More you pay, more luxury you get to enjoy, it is as simple as that.
There has been few accident of cruise ship in last few years which made the titanic episode pretty fresh in our mind but I believe they were quite exaggerated to be true. People because of the movie and fear of sea avoid going for a cruise ship travel but let’s be realistic here, there has been more accidents of passenger airliners than cruise ship as a matter of fact. There are many factors of nature that are not under human control and mishaps do happen. The other day I saw a cheap photo printing of a cruise ship that got tilted because of some problems of navigation, but that didn’t get me worried about anything as accidents happen everywhere. To me a cruise ship travel experience is more fun than a travel to a resort and staying there. In fact it may even cost you less if you plan intelligently. My last cruise trip of 21 days had 6 ports of call. The locations were beautiful and the tour operator had arranged events on every single night of the cruise tour.
In a particular cruise ship there will be many luxuries like:
- Swimming Pool
- First Aid and a small Hospital
- Long Tennis Court
- Squash Courts
- Table Tennis
- Volley Ball Court
- Snooker Tables
- Night Clubs
- Bars and Casinos
- Shopping Area
- Adventurous Activities
- Socializing Activities
Vacation Option Traveling is the best result of a cruise ship travel is how you are able to find new friends on your way. Since everyone is living on the ship and everyday get to meet each other, there is strong possibility of developing strong relationships with them. Apart from nice time on a cruise ship I also found some amazing friends that I am still in contact with. In fact on our last cruise couple of those friends that I met on different cruise voyages tagged along for fun time. So if you are worried if you might not have fun on a lengthy cruise voyage, clear those doubts as you will have time of your life, I can bet on that.
