Cruises often get a bad rap– They’re not always viewed as the best way to travel. The myriad of reasons that are given not to take a cruise are often spouted by the very same people who have never been on a cruise themselves.

1.) ALL YOU CAN EAT- Perhaps it’s not necessary to expand on the idea of all you can eat, but the author finds it necessary to convey just how awesome the constant presence of free food is. A typical day, if you’re so inclined, could look like this: Breakfast buffet, soft serve ice cream bar, pizza, soft serve ice cream bar, lunch buffet, soft serve ice cream bar, fancy dinner, soft serve ice cream bar, drinking with new friends you inevitably meet, midnight buffet. Repeat. (Certainly, there are variations to the culinary offerings on cruise lines, and not everyone shares the author’s affinity for food and ice cream. The point here, is you can have everything, free, all the time).
2.) Discounts. Serious discounts.- Cruises are still not quite the hot commodity they have the potential to be. Therefore, discounts on cruises are widely available.

Just take a look, and you’ll be surprised at just how little it can cost for an all-inclusive holiday.
3.) Visit multiple destinations- This one is a no brainer. Visiting multiple destinations is a great way to see the world. Why not take a holiday on which you can check off several destinations on your bucket list?
