Top reasons to take a cruise in 2018

February 16, 2018

Want to see more of the world but hate dealing with airport security? Cruising could be the answer you’re looking for. Whether you’ve always wanted to cruise or you’re still wondering if cruising is for you, here are some top reasons to take a cruise in 2018:


Let’s face it: No one likes flying from one place to another. Not only do you need to either pay for airport parking or get a taxi to the airport, but you then need to ensure that you arrive early enough to deal with the line at check in, hope your bag isn’t overweight, and then get your family through security. Then you have to wait at the gate, deal with delays, and then be crammed onto a plane for multiple hours. No wonder so many people decide to skip their yearly vacation.

But with cruising, everything is taken care of. You simply show up at the dock, board your cruise, and you don’t need to deal with any of the stress associated with flying. Best of all? You can sail from Southampton, removing a large portion of the hassle of travel.



Cruising is an incredibly cost-effective way to travel because you pay for the majority of your holiday well before you step on the ship. You can also pay your cruise off after you’ve paid your deposit, making it a great for the budget. One of the reasons cruising is so good for the wallet? Your accommodation, transport, food, and entertainment are all included in the price you pay. You can even pre-book your tours and activities at each destination so you barely need to reach into your pocket at all.


Want a holiday that all ages will enjoy? Cruising is great for the whole family. That’s because cruise lines recognise that adults want to be able to relax and kids want to be kept entertained. You’ll be able to enjoy alone time while your kids make friends in the kids club, and you can also go out as a family to explore each destination together.


One of the best reasons to cruise? It’s super relaxing. You won’t need to continually pack and unpack your bags, but you’ll still get to see multiple destinations on each cruise. Instead of dragging hollow-eyed kids through airports, you’ll all go to sleep and wake up in a new, exciting city. If you’ve ever thought to yourself “I need a holiday from my holiday,” cruising is the best option for you.
