The romance and utter indulgence of travelling by water is something that people have revered for years. As an alternative to flying, cruising takes on the philosophy: enjoy the journey, not merely the destination. With deluxe ocean liners, luxurious river cruises and action-packed adventure trips all on offer; this multi-billion dollar industry has evolved, offering something for everyone.
Whether you're a veteran or a first-timer, here are four reasons why you can't look past an all-inclusive unforgettable luxury cruise as the ultimate holiday choice.
The amount of organisation (and brain space) that comes with researching, planning, booking and then embarking on an overseas trip is enormous! There’s flights, accommodation, food, attractions, not to mention catering to the needs of family, friends and travel companions. Phew, we are exhausted just thinking about it all!
While this process can be exciting, it can border on stressful leaving you needing a break from your break. Why not avoid the hassle and book an all-inclusive cruise? With no hidden costs and the freedom to do as you please, all-inclusive cruises are the perfect option for anyone looking to unwind, relax and indulge! With everything from eating to activities organised before you board, there's nothing left to do but put your feet up and watch the world go by.
Value for money
When it comes to booking your picture-perfect holiday the question of “how much?” can often take a backseat. You can't put a price on happiness, right? While the price may not initially be a concern, the hidden costs of travelling can quickly add up!
The antidote for overspending? Two words: All-inclusive. Take the guesswork out of budgeting for your holiday with packages that include everything, with all the details taken care of.
The path less travelled
Gone are the days where the cruise ship itineraries feature a couple of crowded tourist destinations and then a return trip home. With uplift in passenger diversification, cruise companies have extended their wings so to speak, and you can now (pretty much) travel to any country that has an ocean border by boat. Voyage from Amsterdam to Budapest in a Concerto River Ship or discover the treasures of India aboard a luxurious houseboat - the world is your oyster! Looking for a truly unique experience? Most cruise’s offer exclusive and once in a lifetime opportunities only available to their passengers.
Freedom of choice
Forget the fine print or locked in plans, with a little bit of research, you can find plenty of all-inclusive cruise deals that adopt a do-as-little-or as-much-as-you-like policy. APT cruises are one such provider. With package options that include freedom of choice activities and meals, they take care of all of the finer details while still leaving the big decisions up to you.
