I love how versatile cruises are! The ports allow you to explore several places in just one vacation. It is an extremely family friendly and cost effective way to vacation. There are so many reasons why Carnival Cruises are my favorite vacation but I will share with you my 10 Reasons To Cruise With Carnival Cruises!
1) Great Value
When it comes to cruising, you get the biggest bang for your vacation money. Once you board the ship you are en route to at least one but typically several destinations. Plus, many food, drink and activities while aboard the ship are covered under your vacation fare.
2) Family Friendly
Cruises (especially Carnival Cruises) are one of the most family friendly ways to vacation. Aboard Carnival Cruises you will find multiple activities for everyone in your party. There are areas for the adults to get away all while the younger kids (infants included) enjoy time in their own safe areas of the ship.
3) Easy to Plan
Cruises are a one stop shop when it comes to planning your vacation. All you have to do is pick the ports you want to visit and everything else is on the ship. There are varying types of entertainment and food available at any time on the ship and the ports offer unique experiences with each stop.
4) Variety of Activities
Cruises in general offer a decent amount of entertainment and activities. The types of things offered depends on the type of cruise that you choose to take. Carnival Cruise Ships however, house a wide variety of activities and entertainment. The best part is: there is something on board for everyone. Each age group has their own area they can go to. Plus several areas that are family friendly.
5) Embarkation Ports
Carnival Cruise Lines offer somewhere around 17 different embarkation ports. Their ports are scattered from Canada, to Alabama, to Florida, to New York, Barbados and Hawaii just to name a few. Their wide range of available ports makes it more cost effective for their cruises because costly airline flights aren’t needed.
6) The Food
Many people take cruises specifically for the food. Carnival Cruises are no different. Carnival Cruises offer so many different food options. They offer their regular menu items but also host several specialty restaurants. They are known to have some of the best food among all the cruise lines.
7) New Experiences and Adventures
There are so many new and unique experiences that you can’t typically find within a ‘normal’ vacation. While the experiences themselves may be found on a normal vacation, you get to experience more of those when you are on a cruise.
Internet is available aboard your cruise but, it is pretty expensive. On top of that, cell service is pretty spotty. Take advantage of this and disconnect.
Unlike airlines, cruises don’t charge you for your luggage. Plus, you can bring as many bags as you want (within a reasonable limit). This alone can save you money.
Cuba has opened itself up for Americans to travel there but, they have specific rules as to who can get it. You cannot just simply go to be a tourist, you need an agenda among other rules and regulations. Cruises however are an exception to this rule. You do need your passport but, Carnival Cruise Line takes it upon themselves to schedule your agenda.
These are only 10 reasons why cruising is a great way to vacation but truthfully, there are so many more. Each cruise line offer their own perks but, Carnival Cruise Line goes above and beyond for their cruises to make sure they have a good time. If you haven’t been on a cruise before, now is the time! If you have cruised before, why not take another one?
