Life On Board
Time at sea is a holiday in itself. With live entertainment, fine dining and activities for all tastes, the journey is just as enjoyable as the on-shore excursions. There's always something to keep you occupied as you travel between ports. When selecting your cruise, consider the on-board offerings just as much as the destinations you visit.
Night owls of all ages will find heaps of fun on board their cruise liner. Dance til your feet hurt or sing karaoke until you're hoarse, while knowing your comfortable bed is only minutes away. Many cruise lines provide child-minding services at an hourly rate as part of their youth programs, so parents can let their hair down too.
Onboard dining is no longer restricted to set meal times in the ship's main dining hall. Today's cruises offer so many more options, from gourmet a la carte and intimate supper clubs to casual bistro eateries and room service – whatever and whenever you feel like it.
Boredom is not an option when you're cruising. With live music, comedy, cabaret or the latest blockbuster movies, your cruise ship will feel more like a floating resort. The wide range of endless entertainment will have you wishing the next port was further away.
Adrenaline junkies and lounge lizards will be equally happy aboard a cruise liner. Indulge yourself in spa treatments, learn a new skill or play a different sport every day. Onboard sports and activities are typically included in the cost of cruise holidays, though some activities incur a small additional charge.
Many cruise liners offer outstanding spa facilities that wouldn't be out of place in a five star hotel. From hot stone massage and luxurious facials to seaweed body wraps and teeth whitening, become your most beautiful self in the hands of highly skilled professionals.
Some cruise lines are more geared towards families than others, with fantastic children and youth programs for different age groups. With a wide range of fun activities on offer, you might not see your kids at all between meal times! Highly trained and experienced staff will supervise and interact with your kids, allowing you to focus on yourself for a change.
On a cruise holiday you can make every day your own, and every day can be as varied as you want it to be. Nothing is compulsory on a cruise, so you can either take advantage of the scheduled entertainment and activities, or do whatever you like, whenever you like.
