Being an avid traveler, many have asked me where are my favorite vacation spots, and what types of vacation I dig. Of course, there is nothing like an opulent all-inclusive, where everything is included, although, for many, all-inclusive is also synonym to boredom and lack of activities. While this may be true in some cases, you may want to rethink this with a cruise. A cruise offers you the luxury of an all-inclusive, while giving you the opportunity to visit more cities and sight you would do in a regular trip.
If you’ve never taken a European cruise in the past, check out these 5 facts about them.
Fact #1 Efficient – A cruise allows you to see many cities and countries in a short time period
Fact #2 Comfort – Are you already tired by the idea of the unpacking, then repacking! With a cruise, unpack once, at the very beginning of the trip, and repack once, at the very end of the trip!
Fact #3 Affordable and economical – Pay once, and everything is included. Many trips include hidden fees too often forgotten – renting a car, food, cost of exchanging currencies, etc. Here, you do not have to worry about anything but the cost of the extra day trips you may want to take or souvenirs you may want to purchase through the trip.
Fact #4 The biggest downside of taking a cruise is the limited time you have at each location. Here, you don’t have the option of staying one more day in a specific location, because the ship will leave without you!
Fact #5 Another downside are motion sickness. If you know that you are highly susceptible to motion sickness, getting a room with a window and having some anti-nausea pills on hand can be a good way to prevent motion sickness. Fortunately, because of the size of the ships and the calmness of the water, the likelihood of motion sickness is close to nothing.
