A cruise vacation is like no other vacation in the world. From the moment you enter the ship’s terminal for check-in to the moment you walk onto the luxury ship for the first time, it is a feeling filled with excitement and anticipation. While making your way onboard, you will encounter many different security checkpoints culminating in the festive welcoming committee passing out drinks and giving directions. Although many questions will fill your mind, the answers are found easily and help is always available 24/7. While participating in the initial boarding routines, photographers snap your photo for later display in the gallery. Throughout the cruise, photographers shoot photos of guests enjoying one of the many activities. Cruise vacations are predominantly all-inclusive and consist of the following fun-filled activities.
The ship is a floating luxury liner complete with coffee shops, jewelry and clothing shops, and other duty free boutiques. One-of-a-kind, handcrafted items and souvenirs are two options available to shoppers at one of the many onboard boutiques. While drinking your favorite latte purchased at one of the coffee shops, relax in a comfortable chair or at a café table in an open-air lounge area located around the shopping village.
Onboard Pool Deck
On the top deck of the ship is the pool area where you can sit by the pool and soak up the sun or eat a burger at the pool-deck restaurant. The pool-deck area is an active place with an open bar, band, directed water contests, as well as restaurants and many activities for the kids. Nightly theme parties are held around the pool with food and music and are a great way to meet fellow passengers.
Cruises are famous for the appetizing food prepared by top chefs. The buffet area is open almost any time, and the selection of food at the buffet is unbelievable. For breakfast, choose from a variety of meat, eggs, cereal, fruit, and bagels among other delectable choices. The dinner and supper menus are tantalizing with some of the best steaks and fresh seafood found anywhere. The desserts are delicious and the key lime pie is the best. Buffet dining is a casual atmosphere; however, the formal dining area is just that, formal. While seated in a luxurious dining room, impeccable servers wait on guests. The five-course meal is excellent, and the parade of chefs waving white napkins is a memorable experience.
The nightlife is electrifying and activities are available adults and teens. Dance the night away or attend a live variety show featuring top performers with superior talent. Try your luck at one of the many casino games or just relax in a lounge area or on the pool deck looking at the starlit sky.
A cruise vacation is more than described in this article; it is a romantic or family bonding experience unlike any other. There are hundreds of activities 24/7, and ship personnel will help you or answer any questions at any time. At the end of the day, a swan made from a fresh towel sits on your bed awaiting sleepy eyes for a peaceful rest to prepare you for the next exciting day.
