This time I’m going to inform you of all the positive things about cruising:
1. You visit plenty of places without the effort on your part
2. You don’t spend on expensive accommodation every night
3. You can have any amount of food as you want
4. You can go to the theatre almost every night to see top shows
The concept that you visit plenty of places is valid. The fact that you rarely get more than eight or so hours to take action will either whet your appetite for the further visit or make you pleased you are selling it to some other place after you experience possibly even. Sometimes a quick explore is simply enough.
Don’t expect to do all things in the limited time available. You don’t even have to leave the ship, (it can be nice and quiet should you not) although I always think that this is this type of waste. You may never check out the place again, so why wouldn’t you have a go?
Just one caution, sometimes the nearest city is a bus ride out of the port. This can be an extended trip there and back, eating into the eight hours that you’ve, to feel rushed!
The cabins on board could be easy and slightly small, but as I spend so little time included, I always choose the cheaper ‘inside staterooms’. Also, rooms with balconies rarely interest me as I can invariably look for a vantage point on a single from the upper decks. Your accommodation is basic but comfortable and relatively cheap per night should you compare it against a hotel!
A lot of people go on cruises simply for the meals have they often wait for the majority of meals. For the main meals, there could be a gown code on certain days, which involves formal clothes for example suits and dresses. There will always be alternate burger bars that one could head to where this can not be the truth! Meals rarely have inclusive drinks especially alcoholic ones.
The theatre isn’t mentioned much on a cruise, but I know that you could get superb performances that rival London West End Shows. Your theatre entertainment could become a part of your regular activities and is a great way of winding down after an extended day. Alcoholic drinks are sold everywhere on board throughout the day, even just in the theatre.
So there it is, just a couple of circumstances to think of.
