Five reasons to choose an ocean cruise

By LLM Reporters on 22nd January 2017

With multiple destinations and on board entertainment to rival the centre of London, a cruise is the ultimate choice in luxury travel. Still unsure about whether a cruise is for you? Read on for our five reasons to choose an ocean cruise this year.

1) For a chilled-out holiday
Cruising takes all the stress out of your holiday. Skip the queues for airport security and instead sail to your next destination. Sip on a cocktail or sunbathe on deck as you travel between locations and you’ll wonder why you ever travelled by plane.

2) Enjoy beach relaxation
There’s plenty of time for beach relaxation on a cruise. Cruises to the Caribbean stop off in heavenly locations such as St Lucia, Barbados and Nevis. Whether you want to bury your toes in the sand or swim in the warm ocean, there’s a cruise to cater to your beach loving ways. Don’t fancy the Caribbean? Why not try Dubrovnik and the Dalmatian Islands or Spain and the Algarve? The possibilities are endless!

3) No flights
Some cruise operators offer no-fly cruises which have no flights whatsoever! For travellers who are reluctant to fly for any reason, a no-fly cruise is the perfect way to get your travel fix. With no need to worry about the anxiety of a long flight, you can throw away your luggage scales and focus on getting your holiday wardrobe ready – no matter how big it may be! Plus, you can return from your holiday with as much luggage as you please.

4) See unbelievable sights
Some things are best seen from the ocean and Norway’s glaciers, fjords and mountains are among them. Take a cruise through Norway and you’ll be astonished by the natural beauty of the Norwegian landscape. Visit the villages that thrive in these incredible surroundings for a taste of a wholly different lifestyle.

5) Three holidays in one!
The best benefit of a cruise is undoubtedly the opportunity to visit several different countries in one trip. Whether you use a cruise as a holiday sampler to see where you’d like to return to, or simply to see more of the world, you’ll love the freedom and discovery that comes with a cruise holiday.

Cruise to Dalmatia and Ancient Greece and you’ll visit Italy, Croatia and Greece all during one holiday! This cruise combines all the best bits of a foodie trip, a beach holiday and a break filled with historic discovery into one.

We all deserve a little more luxury on our travels, and it doesn’t get much more luxurious than an ocean cruise! Start working on your 2017 travel wish list, and maybe you could tick a few of your desired destinations off in one swoop by booking a cruise.
