At the moment a lot of people will be away on their summer holidays. Whether staying at home or going abroad, we’ve all seen the holiday pictures all over social media. So it might have got you thinking about where you might like to go on your next holiday. One thing that I would recommend trying at least once in your life is a cruise. If you’ve never been on a cruise, and aren’t too sure what to expect, then here are plenty of reasons why a cruise should be your next holiday.

I've been lucky enough to go on about six cruises so far with Royal Caribbean and I loved every minute! I am going on another cruise this month to Norway with P&O and I can't wait. I will be sharing photos while I'm there so make sure you are follow my social media - twitter and instagram.

All-Inclusive & Easy To Plan
Once you have chosen your what company you want to go with, your cabin and the excursions that you want, there is very little to plan. You don’t need to think about hotels in different cities or thinking about planning car rental, food, or arranging the sights that you’ll see at your destination. You can choose your dining options in advance, as well as any day excursions. But other than that, it is all taken care of for you.

The Options Are Endless
There are cruises for all different budgets, as well as all different types of holiday. From relaxing beach cruises, to cruises that will drop you off at a variety of cities, to ones that will leave you exploring the Norwegian fjords. You can choose a luxury cruise with a provider like Bolsover Cruises, or choose more family-friendly options like a Disney cruise. So the great thing is that there are so many choices to choose from. I personally couldn't recommend Royal Caribbean enough but it is quite pricey.

You Can See So Many New Places 
Depending on the type of cruise that you choose, you are likely to see a lot of destinations all at once. So if you’ve got a lot of places that you want to tick off your bucket list, then a cruise can be a really good idea. I think this is especially true of European cruises; there are so many countries and cities to see in Europe that it would take you years and years to do them all. A cruise could tick four or five of them off the list for you! For example, on one cruise we visited Italy, Greece and Turkey then on another cruise a couple of years later we visited Russia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland and Sweden in 10 days!

You Get To Indulge 
Cruise ships are huge and have so much on offer. From a huge range of restaurants to chose from as well as spas and bars, there is plenty of opportunity to indulge and treat yourself. It really is a time to relax and unwind, with not needing to do any cleaning or washing dishes all week! You can still enjoy some comforts from home, though, with plenty of choices for swimming or exercise in the gyms as well as shops, pubs and bars.

You Meet New People 
You are likely to be going on a cruise with your other half or family. But there is plenty of chance to meet new people on a cruise. The chances are they are like-minded people as you’ve picked the same cruise, so you can get to know people from all walks of life, as well as enjoying meals and various activities with them.

Have you been on a cruise? Are you going on holiday this summer?
