10 Reasons Why You Should Cruise for a Special Occasion22 December, 2012
Planning a celebration for a special occasion e.g. wedding anniversary, birthday? Staycation in Singapore or weekend getaway to Bintan or Bangkok? How about going on a cruise – here are ten reasons why you should cruise for a special occasion:
1- It’s all inclusive. Your accommodation, dining requirements, and leisure activities are all included within the fare. Don’t believe me? Check out Cruise Offers. Nothing sullies a special occasion like a cost blow out. No need to worry about that with a cruise holiday.
2- You’ll be treated like royalty by a dedicated team of friendly professionals. I don’t know about you, but if I’m splashing out for a celebratory holiday, I want to know that I’m not going to be treated like a bed bug. Cruise staff are renowned for their welcoming, can-do approach.
3-It’s safe. You don’t need to worry about having too many celebratory Tequila Sunrises and not being able to find your way home. It’s nigh on impossible to get catastrophically lost on a ship.
4- You don’t need to keep unpacking your bags. There is really nothing more to add to this. Packing and unpacking bags while travelling is one of life’s great misery’s. You don’t want your special occasion marred by (literal) baggage.
5- Following on from the above point: you may not need to unpack your bags, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be disembarking and exploring new ports. You can visit as few or as many ports as you wish. If you are having fun celebrating your special occasion in your bedroom, there’s no need to stop. You’ll get off at the next port.
6- Mediterranean Cruises offer a huge breadth of entertainment options. Discos, game nights, legendary entertainers, elaborate fancy dress balls. There’s something for everyone, every night.
7- The food! My god, the food. The most discerning of palates, the pickiest of eaters, the real sticklers for detail, will doubtless be astonished at both the choice and quality of the food available on board a cruise. Special occasions can be celebrated in style, with feasts fit for kings and queens. The one downside: you will never want to prepare or eat a home cooked meal again.
8- There’s a cruise for every budget. If you’re celebrating a special occasion with a large group of people of varying incomes, this is an important consideration. Rooms can be had for as little as $100 per night. Staggeringly good value when you consider this includes everything- food, leisure, the works!
9-If you’ve got kids, there are a plethora of options to keep them entertained, as well as babysitting and childcare services, all staffed by qualified professionals. If you’d rather your romantic anniversary dinner for two didn’t include the squawkings of an unsettled toddler, you have plenty of care options.
10- You don’t really need a TENTH reason, do you?! My, my, you’re a demanding type. Which means you’re ideally suited to cruise holidays, as there’s no whim or wish that can’t be fulfilled in your floating resort. It’s the ideal way to celebrate a special occasion, while eliminating all the common stresses that so often tarnish the traveller’s experience.

Zhiqiang & Tingyi, that’s a great post! I totally agree with you. River cruises are amazing. I have never been a big fan of hiking or any of those adventure holidays at all. I have been on a Chinese river cruise with my wife for our honeymoon. We both loved it. The service, the sea, the food, the cities – incredible. We will definitely use Viking River Cruises again for our next holiday. Perhaps we will go on a European river cruise, and I’d like to see some other parts of Asia as well. Travelling the world on a cruise is relaxing and exciting at the same time.
