Choosing to Cruise

Smooth Sailing

Here’s why you should plan to take a cruise on your next vacation.

When it comes to planning a vacation, travellers are now faced with so many different and exciting options. Sometimes, the options can seem almost overwhelming. But one often overlooked option is a holiday on a cruise ship. Cruise ships offer an amazing variety of thrilling activities, spectacular entertainment, mouth-watering dining, children’s clubs, spacious, comfortable accommodation and sailings that will take you to some of the most incredible destinations in the world. So whether you’re looking for a fun-packed family adventure or a relaxing retreat – why not consider going on a cruise?

It’s the ultraconvenient way to travel.
Just unpack once and experience the best of the region you are visiting in one cruise vacation. Imagine waking up in the morning to exciting and interesting places. For example, with Star Cruises Superstar Gemini voyage you will visit four ports of call including Malacca, Langkawi, Penang and Kuala Lumpur.

Cruises offer unbeatable value.
The cost of the cruise usually includes the fare, accommodation, food and some on-board entertainment, activities and sightseeing. Cruise lines take the hassle and worry away for travellers by including everything they need. Instead of having to book plane tickets, call a hotel and then have to pay for food and entertainment separately, cruises offer it all – everything is paid for upfront! You just board the ship and have fun!

It’s the perfect way to enjoy a stress free holiday.
Compared to a road trip or flying, when you go on a cruise you can sit back and enjoy the time it takes to get to your destination. There are no delays that will mess up a connecting flight or traffic that will add hours onto a road trip. You get to enjoy all of the facilities of a state of the art ship with a captain and crew that are there to take care of all your needs. In addition to this, cruises offer a ‘real getaway’ from the outside world. For instance if you book a two week cruise; you will spend two weeks without large cities and the hustle and bustle of life. The ship will only stop at specific destinations where everyone will be able to get off and enjoy local towns and sightseeing.

Another fabulous feature of cruises are the great deals available.
On some cruises children of a certain age get a reduced price since they eat less and will do fewer activities on the ship. In addition to this, child care is also available aboard ships and parents are usually given a pager in case of an emergency. This gives parents the opportunity to relax and enjoy themselves while their children are engaged in fun on-board activities, under the watchful eye of experienced crew.

A cruise is a great holiday option that offers something for everyone – fabulous food, fascinating destinations and endless fun!
