Wouldn’t it be lovely to wake up in a different city every morning? Allowing you the question- To explore or not to explore? Choose a day of activity discovering new cities, a cuisine, a new culture or stay on-board for a day of relaxation. This is the essence of cruising.
Gone are the days, when it was a leisurely affair for an older, very prim and proper crowd. Younger cruisers and the families, choosing a cruise as their main holiday, make the sector the fastest growing travel segment. Yet, there are still recurring questions such as:
- Will I get seasick? I’m worried about;
- The number of outfits one needs to take for all the formal dining will break the bank!
- There are so many people on a ship, it must get a bit claustrophobic;
- Cruises are expensive and there are so many options, I get really confused
We ask experienced cruisers, like Penny, from Parent shaped and Emily from Cruise.co.uk to help address these.
We also asked three distinctly different cruise operator about how they alleviate any jitters of first time family cruisers:
Princess Cruises radiates class, a modern version of traditional cruising;
Norwegian Cruise line is relaxed, leading the way to more freestyle and laid back cruising;
Hurtigruten offers adventurous, more expedition style cruises;
From tropics to the poles these cruise liners offer all sorts of soft and hard-core adventure.
