Why choose a cruise?
Cruising has become a popular vacation today
because it takes away from the pressures and strains of
contemporary life ashore, and offers a means of escape from
reality. Cruise ships are self-contained floating resorts that
take you to many destinations in the space of just a few days.
Cruising provides a source of adventure, excitement, romance and
wonder. Cruising is hassle free. When youíre onboard, virtually
everything is taken care of. There are no hotel or dinner
reservations to make, no theater tickets to buy, no car rentals
to coordinate. Since cruising is all-inclusive it makes easier
and a convenient way to travel with families with children. Itís
no wonder that 85% of cruisegoers want to go again, and again!
Who takes a cruise?
Singles, couples, families,
honeymooners, group of friends, are all cruise goers.
