Reasons To Cruise

A cruise line knows that it's all about service. For the duration of the voyage, your satisfaction depends on a service level that exceeds your expectations. The best cruise lines are always looking for new ways to please you.

One price buys your cabin, dining, entertainment, and more.

Secluded beaches, dining under the stars at sea, and spa services for two are just some of the romantic pursuits available.

Tantalize your taste buds with gourmet fare that showcases exotic ingredients, old standbys like pizza and ice cream, or spa cuisine for a healthy alternative. Depending on your mood, dine in a traditional ballroom setting or a small bistro.

There are more than 100 distinctive ships and countless ports-of-call with a diversity of activities and attractions. Your options are only limited by your imagination.

Fill your days with sightseeing, sports activities, cultural lectures, educational tours led by naturalists and historians, or simply lounge by the pool and relax. At night, enjoy dancing, shows, musical revues, gaming, or a quiet evening star gazing. Some lines now offer rock climbing, ice skating, zip lines, and movies under the stars.

On a cruise, nearly all expenses are pre-paid - talk about hassle-free.

Families love cruising. Children's programs, kid-friendly menus, and tours of the ship will keep your children happy, while affording you some time alone.

Regardless of your budget, all cruise lines pamper their guests with first-class service around the clock.

It's a fact that cruises have a higher percentage of satisfied customers than any other vacation experience.

Enjoy the vacation of a lifetime, see exotic places, take a walk on the wild side or completely unwind, dance the night away or dine under the stars, make new friends, bond with your family, or steal quiet moments with your spouse. Make your dream come true!
