Whenever I speak to people about cruises it never ceases to amaze me just what people who have never cruised, actually think about this type of vacation, and how wrong they usually are. One of the most common questions which I am asked about cruise vacations, is what life is like on-board the ship, and whether or not it can become boring. In light of that I wanted to write a post about what life is like aboard the cruise ship and what you can expect during your time away.
As I write this I am on a Seabourn cruises ship, so I can assure you that the information is most definitely up to date.
I have stayed in almost all levels of accommodation on many a cruise ship and I have always found it to be spacious, very comfortable and most definitely well serviced. The choices available for accommodation ranges from those above deck, below deck, luxury suites and budget cabins, and all of which are of an excellent standard.
There are many days on the cruise that you may have to find ways to fill in your time, as you will be at sea all day, this will not be a problem when you take a cruise however. The reason for this is because cruise ships are absolutely packed to the rafters with entertainment for you to enjoy as you pass your time at sea. Some ships offer theaters and cinemas, multiple swimming pools with jacuzzis and wave machines, kid’s clubs, tennis courts, live performers and even spa centers. Cruise companies understand your needs and they make sure that they do all that they can on-board to meet them.
Food and Drink
Another fear which many have is that there will be a lack of food options for them on-board, and that they will be stuck with the same old food each day and night. This could not be farther from the truth and in fact you can depend on sampling some of the most exquisite food and a wide range of eating options. Most cruise liners offer a variety of high class restaurants, snack bars and eating establishments which will be more than enough for whatever tastes that you have.
The service on-board a cruise ship is some of the finest and most hospitable that I have ever experienced and you can guarantee that your time on the ship will be made better because of it. If you have a problem you can expect it to be solved quickly, the staff are always on hand for whatever you need and the level of personal care is absolutely phenomenal. On the vessel you will find a huge number of staff who deal with customer relations, catering, cooking, cleaning and entertaining and you won’t have to look far to find someone to attend to your every need.
The destinations which you can head to on a cruise ship are truly wonderful, and so too will your time be aboard the ship.
