I have been on so many cruises and after every cruise, it reassures me that it is one of the most relaxing vacations ever. Within ‘x’ amount of days, you will be able to visit a number of places that you may or may not have been before. I love cruising because it gives me the chance to see if I like the destination or not. It gives me an idea of whether this place is worth revisiting again. For example, Athens in Greece. I’ve been there twice already and I don’t see myself revisiting that city anytime soon.
Cruising gives you the opportunity to witness some of the most beautiful sunrises you will ever see. Believe it or not, one of the things that I look forward to is waking up early to see the sunrise. Waking up at 5am may seem impossible for those of you who are night owls. I am an early bird and even then, sometimes I just want to go back to sleep. When I see that sun full of hot oranges and red rise above the horizon, waking up at 5am is one of the best decisions I have made. If everyone watched the sunrise and/or sunset everyday, I bet they would live their life differently.
Cruising will open your eyes to new things that you may never be able to see unless you’re on a cruise ship. I witnessed this cruise ship do a 180 turn and parallel park behind my cruise ship. It was pretty epic and unexpected. I wonder if parallel parking a cruise ship is easier than a car?
Many people might think that cruising is boring sometimes. For me, cruising is so fun! I literally have the best time, ever. I always feel like I am so busy. At the end of every night, you will receive a very detailed itinerary for the next day in your cabin. I felt like there was so much to do that I needed more time. I did a scavenger hunt and I actually came first. I was surprised, too. This, right here, was a belly flop contest.
One of my favorite activities to do on the ship was rock climbing. I was there so often that I even became ‘friends’ with the crew ship members. Climbing on the seas is always better. Once you’re up there, the view of the ocean is spectacular.
The adults might like this more. It really becomes alive at night.
If you’re feeling tired and just want to relax, you can enjoy a movie under the stars while eating popcorn. Or, you can enjoy the movie in the pool or jacuzzi.
A cruise will not be a cruise without the food. This is just one of the hundreds of foods that I put into my stomach. It was so delicious that I’m actually craving it now… sigh…
Think about it. You get off the cruise ship for hours and it is hot and humid. You’re under the sun, exhausted, hungry and thirsty. You’re tired and all you want to do is get back onto the ship that has air conditioning and take a nice long shower. After your shower, you want to grab a bite. All you have to do is take the elevator up to the buffet and food is right in front of you. If you’re really that tired and don’t want to leave your cabin, just call room service.
I can’t wait to do all this again next year! 🙂
