Cruising: The Great Escape
Vacationing can be a double-edged sword. While the thought of getting away is exciting, the actual planning and act of vacationing can be quite stressful and even overwhelming at times. (Unless you use a travel consultant, of course!!) That’s why cruising is such a great alternative to other vacation options. Where else are you waited on hand and foot and pampered 24/7? Once on board, your worries simply “float” away, because you’re not required to plan a single thing. From dinner to land stops, it’s all available at your disposal or built into your cruise itinerary.

Have kids? Don’t underestimate the power a cruise can have on bringing your family closer together (or give you some much needed time apart). Have fun and create memories visiting some of the most wonderful destinations in the world! Or relax and bask in some well deserved “me-time.” Cruise lines have the ultimate child-care services. While you’re busy getting a spa treatment or enjoying a workout, the ship’s staff will keep the youngsters busy. You’ll be able to spend some time on your own as the kids participate in circus events, sing and dance at their own age-appropriate parties or take part in one of the other countless shipboard activities offered just for children.
There are a wide range of cruise amenities and services designed to help you unwind and let loose. Some of the newer amenities include jogging tracks, rock-climbing wall, thalassotherapy pools, wellness cuisines and Turkish baths. And the oldies but always the goodies: saunas, facials and stone therapy.
Feeling stressed? Need a vacation? Take a cruise. It’s a great way to relieve stress and make some memories along the way.
