Cruising holidays used to have themselves a bad reputation as a vacation exclusively for old people. But with more luxury liners than ever before, cruising is now one of the finest ways to see the world with so many benefits, it’s easy to see why they’re more popular than ever. Here’s why you should try a cruise holiday for the first time:

New Adventures

The essential reason why you should go on a cruise is the opportunity to have a new adventure every single day. With a new place to explore every day, providing the opportunity to experience a different culture, try new foods and see new sights, there’s an opportunity to see a lot of the world in a short period of time and if you don’t like a city or town very much, it’s not like a holiday where you’re stuck there for a week or two.


When booking a holiday a lot of people struggle between whether to go on a city break, adventure trip or sun bathing holiday. With a cruise you have the best of both worlds and can experience all these different types of holiday in one. Days at sea whilst travelling to new destinations mean great sunbathing time and if you’re not big on sunbathing, there’s plenty to do on a cruise with on board entertainment, cinemas, spas and even climbing walls on some cruises.

High Quality Accommodation

One of the best things about going on a cruise is the fact that you’re guaranteed high quality accommodation. After a long day of sightseeing there’s nothing nicer than knowing that you’re heading back to comfortable high quality accommodation where you’re guaranteed great food and a good night’s sleep to prepare you for the following day. Plus on board ships like the ones at Planet Cruises, there’s saunas, Jacuzzis and heated swimming pools for chilling out.

Amazing Food

One of the best perks to cruising is the variety of amazing food you get to sample. To all the different local delicacies you’ll get to sample when exploring towns and cities, to the amazing restaurants and all you can eat food that’s available on board. From eating in the main dining hall where you’ll get the chance to mingle with other guests or to booking meals at the exclusive on board restaurants, when it comes to cruising one things for sure, you’ll certainly not go hungry.
