Top 10 Reasons to Take a Cruise

Why Cruise Ships Are Great for Large Groups

Vacations can and should be enhanced when you take them with a large group, be it your multi-generational family or a social group. With more like-minded people to have fun with, your group vacation should be time well spent strengthening the ties that bind you together.

But often they're not, simply because numerous people have numerous expectations to deal with. Thankfully, there's a way to exceed those numerous expectations: by taking a cruise vacation. On cruise ships, there is plenty of space to spread out and enjoy a diverse range of activities, from zip-lining and ice skating to wine tasting and cooking classes. Most of these activities are included in the price of your fare—as is the food and nightly entertainment, like movies and Broadway shows—making a cruise vacation an incredible value. You may also get a group discount when you book multiple cabins, making the value even greater.

Your group can easily enjoy activities together, such as a dinner party in a private space to celebrate an anniversary, or a group excursion at one of the dazzling locales your ship visits. And if you plan far enough in advance, your cabins can be placed near one another, with connected cabins specially designed for families.

Top 10 Reasons to take a Cruise

  1. Choose to cruise for VALUE. One price buys your cabin, dining, entertainment and more.

  2. Choose to cruise for ROMANCE. Secluded beaches, en suite dining on a balcony overlooking the ocean and spa services for two are just some of the romantic pursuits available.

  3. Choose to cruise for CUISINE. Tantalize your taste buds with gourmet fare that showcases exotic ingredients, old standbys like pizza and ice cream or spa cuisine for a healthy alternative. Depending on your mood, dine in a traditional ballroom setting, a small bistro or a casual eatery.

  4. Choose to cruise for VARIETY. With over 200 distinctive ships, 3000 ports-of-call and an unbelievable array of places to see and things to do, there is a perfect cruise for you. For even more choice, consider a pre- or post-land tour.

  5. Choose to cruise for ACTIVITIES. Fill your days with sightseeing, sports activities, cultural lectures, educational tours led by naturalists and historians or simply lounge by the pool and relax. At night, enjoy dance extravaganzas, musical revues, gaming or a quiet evening gazing at the stars.

  6. Choose to cruise for SIMPLICITY. Don't come back from your vacation needing a vacation. Planning a cruise is simple; your CLIA-affiliated travel agency can handle all of the details. Once you're on board, nearly all expenses are pre-paid... talk about hassle-free.

  7. Choose to cruise for NEW HORIZONS. Fall asleep in one destination and awake to a new horizon... and you only have to pack and unpack once!
