Top 5 reasons to take a cruise

The perfect holiday

Why is a cruise the perfect holiday? Because you should be able to relax and unwind on holiday, not worry about where to eat or how to get around. Plus, there are literally hundreds of ships and itineraries to choose from.

1. Everything is organised for you

Most cruise lines will let you select your dining options, shore excursions, and spa treatments in advance. So as soon as you step on that gangplank your ready to relax.

2. You only unpack once

Forget the endless search for things you might have forgotten to re-pack, like your toiletries or that single sock tucked under the bed.

3. You will meet interesting people

You will be able to meet people from all over the world on a cruise because there are so many opportunities to strike up a conversation.

4. Food, food and more food

If you enjoy good food and plenty of it, then a cruise is for you. Most cruise lines offer top Chefs who not only offer fine dining menus but provide child-friendly options as well.

5. Leave from Melbourne

You don’t have to take an international flight, just head to Melbourne, board your cruise ship and you’re away. What could be better than that?
