Why You Should Think Small On Your Next Big Cruise Mar 10

Going on a cruise is always going to be awesome, whether you go on a huge world tour or a smaller pacific cruise. But when it comes to cruises, there is something to be said for smaller sometimes meaning better. The following are a few of the reasons why you may want to try a smaller cruise for your next big trip.

Meet More People / Less Isolating

Even though the idea of a huge boat with lots of people might sound appealing to some, it can often be harder to meet people when there are so many around, and can have people end up feeling quite isolated. Smaller boats on the other hand allow you to be able to familiarise yourself with others on board, and you have more chance of seeing each other around if you do want to be able to hang out.

Better Service

Smaller cruises mean there are less people to be taken care of, making it so that you get better service and more attention from the staff. You also have a better chance of getting to know the staff when there are less passengers on board, which can often make a cruise that little bit more special. Going on a smaller cruise can be like staying in one of the nicer boutique luxury resorts, on the sea.

Cruising holidays are a great way to see everything you want to see without the hassle of organising transfers, individual hotels and transport. People love them for how easy they are—simply book, hop on-board and sail to your destination in style. Whether you’re hankering for the tropical sun and relaxation of a Fiji holiday package or the cultural explosion that comes with experiencing South East Asia, you should think about incorporating a cruise into your travel plans.

Here are three reasons why a cruise is the best way to travel:

 

  1. Getting There is Half the Fun!

 

How many of us hop on a plane to our destination and immediately begin wishing the hours away, killing time by watching movies, reading, or trying to sleep in the cramped little seats while a three-year-old behind you kicks your chair. With cruising, the ‘getting there’ part – the part we usually wish was over fastest – is the best part of the whole experience, with the freedom to stretch out, laze by the pool, and enjoy a cocktail while you wait to arrive.
