Are Cruise Holidays Good Vacation Value?
Is cruising affordable?
Many would-be cruise vacationers ask these and similar questions. The answer
is a resounding yes!
Cruise holidays allow passengers to see many interesting and exotic ports
all in one vacation. A land based holiday would require hours of
uncomfortable travel, agonizing waiting times, packing, unpacking, packing -
you get the picture - to see the same number of sites.
On vacation cruises, your time between ports is enjoyed in comfort and
luxury in your stateroom, elegant dining rooms, expansive sun decks, and
entertaining lounges and theatres aboard
majestic cruise ships. Activities abound day and night, so if
you doing nothing, it's because that is exactly what you want to do.
Meanwhile, your land based holiday would require more time packing and
traveling and less time relaxing and enjoying your vacation.
Even if your land based holiday is planned at only one resort, the balance
still leans to a cruise holiday. Consider what is included in your cruise

ship even has a surf pool.
Most of the large cruise lines cater to family vacations as well. They offer
special programs for children and teens and even have special designated
areas for your kids to enjoy.
Now, with all that included, are cruise holidays still affordable? You can
plan a three or four day cruise vacation for as little as about $300.00 per
person. Some rooms alone in the vacation "hot spots" are more than that a
