Think Cruising is just for Retirees? Think Again.
Long gone are the days when cruising was just for the over-70’s looking for a low-key way to splurge the retirement fund. This new era of cruising accommodates every age and holiday goal.
Forget Kid-Friendly – Cruising is a Kids Dream
Do you want to explore the world, but having three kids under 7 has put your grand plans on the backburner? Let them tire themselves out at laser tag, the bungee trampoline or waterslide park aboard P&O Cruises. They’ll beg you to drop them off at the exciting kids clubs while you have a romantic dinner for two. Even teenagers have their own amazing haunts, well removed from the playgrounds.
Before cruising, your meal options in transit consisted of fish on a plastic tray and cheese and crackers. Now, you have Michelin-starred chefs designing your menu and an ocean view. With a huge variety of regional cuisines, restaurants and bar concepts available, you can have an entirely new dining experience for each of your meals on board! Check out the extensive dining options on board Princess Cruises here.
Just want to totally relax away from the stress of every day life? You’ll be spoiled for choice with decadent treatments available aboard Dream Cruises, with over 4,000 sq.m dedicated to their Beauty and Wellness Centre. You can even receive 24-hour personal butler services!
Cruises are jam-packed with unforgettable and unusual experiences. The Genting Dream features 5 luxury submersibles, so you can explore the ocean depths at 200m below sea level. Royal Caribbean’s Ovation of the Seas has the first ever skydiving simulator at sea, as well as a 40-foot-long on-board surf simulator.
Cruising is a no-fail way to spice-up or cement a relationship.
To set the mood, all guests on board Silversea ships receive a bottle of Champagne, chocolates on arrival, 100% Egyptian cotton satin sheets, and fresh orchids in their room. Couples can enjoy every meal in their in the privacy of their suite if they desire (with a waiter, at no extra charge!).
With 24-hour complimentary room service and private couples massage packages, you and your partner may never want to leave your suite.
Is your idea of a good holiday making sure you’re in bed by 8 (am)? Reserve a Cabana and get ready for a night to compete with anything you’ll find in Miami. Dress up for theme nights, catch a live music show, or learn some new moves at free dance classes with Carnival Cruise Line.
The six-star Regent Seven Seas Explorer is known as “the world’s most luxurious cruise ship”, and for good reason.
With 45,876 square feet of marble, cascading chandeliers, contemporary paintings, sculptures, and glass and ceramic artworks, the 750-passenger ship of opulence cost more than US$450 million to build.
The Regent Suite is the most impressive of all. It features a US$250,000 piano, 2.5 marble bathrooms, a sauna, steam room, multi-jet shower, hot tub, and a enormous wraparound balcony. The US$150,000 bed has a mattress stuffed with specially-bred horse hair, in case you’re picky like that.
