Top Reasons to Go on an Eastern Mediterranean Cruise

Top Reasons to Go on an Eastern Mediterranean Cruise

The idea of booking a cruise holiday can be surrounded with off-putting myths of sea sickness and dated pictures of grandparents in bad shirts. However, ships these days are stable enough to put seasickness at bay and are becoming so innovative that cruises are seen as pretty cool.
These are just a couple of reasons why taking a cruise is definitely worth considering, so let’s take a look at how else you can benefit from sailing across the seas.
Everybody is welcome aboard
Cruises are no longer typically seen as a holiday option solely for the elderly and rich. According to the UK travel trade association for travel agents and tour operators, Abta, one in five under-25s are considering going on a floating cruise holiday. Whether it’s a family-friendly, adults only, party lovers or luxury cruise, you can choose a ship that suit your interests and needs.

Top Reasons to Go on an Eastern Mediterranean Cruise






Multiple destinationsPacking once then calling in at various destinations on your bucket list is probably the major draw of a cruise holiday. For example, holidaymakers looking for exotic treat can go on an Eastern Mediterranean cruise that takes you to countries such as Croatia, Greece and Turkey. If you’re on board one of the Eastern Mediterranean cruises to Croatia, you might visit the ancient city walls of Dubrovnik one day and stroll along the cobbled streets of Rovinj the following day. There’s nothing to beat the thrill of being transported from one fun and exciting place to another. Cruise companies plan their itineraries very carefully to ensure you’ve plenty of time for shopping, dining and exploring the area. They also offer guided shore excursions that include visits to popular attractions in every port.




De-stress with all inclusive
Cruise holidays offer great value for money because everything you need is in one place. Your accommodation, food, drink, facilities, entertainment and activities are included in the price. Most ships these days offer free Wi-Fi, satellite TV, laundry facilities along with fully-equipped medical facilities for peace of mind. With every little detail taken care of by the holiday company, there is little to worry about, leaving you to have fun on board.
So much good food
Whether you’re looking for family-friendly restaurant or a romantic dinner in a bar, you’ll be spoilt for choice. The quality of food served on-board will make your dining experience unforgettable. From the casual (but tasty!) dinner buffets, to highly recommended specialist restaurants, go for what you fancy every night. If you’re conscious about weight gain on a cruise, you can burn off your indulgencies on an on-board fitness class or in the gym.

Forget the old image you might conjure up of cruise ships, as they have overhauled their facilities in order to make vessels more appealing to wide ranging age groups. Whatever your tastes or interests are, you will be sure to find fun-filled activities and entertainment, including swimming pools, rock climbing, gyms, spa facilities, movies, karaoke, live entertainment and night parties. The sports activities on board can help to burn away those extra calories!
Children will not get bored; all major cruise lines offer organised programs for kids. Free childcare services are also available, giving parents the chance to unwind by relaxing and reading a book on lounge chairs by the pool.
Multiple destinations
Packing once then calling in at various destinations on your bucket list is probably the major draw of a cruise holiday.

The only cruise cliché that you should believe is that cruise ships have something for everyone on board. Being catered to while relaxing or being entertained, while sailing along to your next port-of-call: what’s not to like about that?
