Despite some of the bad press cruising has been getting lately, there are still plenty of amazing reasons to plan a cruise.

Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway with your sweetheart or the family vacation of a lifetime, cruising offers affordable prices, convenience, fun excursions, delicious food and more.

Ready to consider it?

Here are eight of my own favorite reasons to plan a cruise.

1. Affordable Prices

By far one of the best reasons to plan a cruise is the incredible value you get for your money.

Along with offering affordable prices, cruising allows you to visit multiple places all in one trip, without the added cost of airfare, hotel stays and eating out.

Just be aware when cruising that there are certain things not automatically included in the initial price, such as booking excursions, dining at on-board specialty restaurants, paying gratuities or buying alcoholic drinks.

Do some research in advance and set a budget for these types of extras in order to avoid spending more than you want.

2. Convenience

As mentioned above, cruising allows you to kick back and relax while your ship carries you from one exciting port to another.

My husband and I loved our honeymoon cruise around the Hawaiian Islands, for instance, which allowed us to visit Oahu, Maui, the Big Island and Kauai all in the same week, without the hassle of flying from place to place.

Worried about safety?

While there are of course no guarantees that any vacation will be mishap-free, cruising continues to be a popular and safe choice for millions of travelers every year.

3. Variety

From Hawaii to Europe to the Caribbean, the number of places you can visit by cruising is nothing short of amazing.2

Some trips might also include optional add-on land packages, so be sure to ask about these options when booking.

Always dreamed of sailing the Mediterranean or gliding across Alaska’s Glacier Bay?

Book a cruise to make your travel dreams a reality.
