Myth Busters: Cruise Edition
Updated: Jan 6
Cruising... just the word makes me smile! But others may not be as excited. That's why we are busting the most common cruise myths.
Cruises are for old folks. Apart from some cruises that cater to senior adults, most cruise lines are very family-friendly. Therefore, you will find passengers of all ages.
Cruise food is terrible. While some cruise lines do prepare better food than others, in general, the vast culinary experience is nothing to balk about. Even the pickiest of eaters can find something they’ll enjoy aboard a cruise.
There isn’t enough to do on a cruise. If you cannot find something to do aboard your cruise, then you must not be looking very hard. You can stay as busy or be as relaxed as you want. Just look at the posted daily schedule for all the activities found aboard that day.
I don’t want to get seasick. If you are prone to getting seasick, then yes, you may want to stay away from the smaller cruise ships. However, you are not as susceptible to feeling much movement on large cruise ships.
There are too many people on a cruise. In some cases, there is no denying this. However, the various cruise lines do a good job at keeping everyone entertained and moving around to minimize the feeling of being crowded.
Cruises are bad for the environment. From minimizing single-use items such as straws and plastic bottles to recycling, using natural fuels, and other initiatives, the cruise lines are doing their part to help protect the environment.
Cruises are expensive. There is a cruise for every budget. For those willing to go last minute and who don’t care about the location of a stateroom, you can catch some great last-minute deals. Like airlines and hotels, cruise lines want every stateroom sold.
Hopefully, these will help clear up any misconceptions about cruises you may have. However, if you are still unsure whether an ocean cruise is the right fit for you, please contact me, and let’s talk some more.
I wish you well. I wish you safe and happy travels. And I can't wait to see you under a Canopy of Stars.
