The Growing Popularity of Cruising and Its Causes

Image

In the recently concluded NATAS Fair 2013, cruising has surprisingly landed on the 7th position among the top 10 most booked vacations. This statistics on Singapore cruise holidays may not have leaped but the growth on statistics still mattered. This just means that more and more people are now considering the idea of voyaging through the vastness of the seas while enjoying a spectacular treat of luxury.

But what exactly appealed to the public that pushes cruising as a prime option for a getaway?

As mentioned earlier, cruising encompasses luxury. A cruise ship is like a floating hotel, equipped with all the facilities and services which are intended to satisfy the incessant needs and demands of its passengers. Aboard, people can enjoy spectacular dining and entertainment experiences in a very unique setting – and that is in the middle of the ocean.

However, the experience does not end in restaurants bars and lounges, and theaters and cinemas alone. Cruise ships are very well informed of the passenger’s necessity to maintain health and wellness while on board so it is most likely that one gets to hit the gym, or do laps on a deck pool while sailing. Furthermore, rounds of golf, tennis, or cricket may also be played on board – thanks to the sports courts provided.  Bowling lanes, rock climbing, line skating, and ice skating may also be done.

Another thing that greatly appeals to the public is that cruising also takes into consideration the younger members of the family. It is a common knowledge that children have short span of attention and tantrums kicking in could ruin the whole cruising experience. Thus, cruise ships usually offer lectures and workshops which kids will certainly enjoy. Art and cooking classes are given to keep the kids’ interests at bay. This way, parents may enjoy their time enjoying the facilities intended for them. Example? The casino.

Yes, most cruise ships have casinos in it. It is often a staple facility of these vessels as most passengers are into this kind of entertainment. Although it cannot be as huge as other gambling establishments on land, the ones in cruise ships can actually compensate. It promises the same atmosphere, so one will hardly find faults on it.

Now although cruising mainly concentrates on staying in the midst of the ocean, the ships do dock on destinations; and subsequently, passengers are allowed to disembark and stroll around the place. In some cruise holiday tour arrangements, people can even stay there overnight for maximum satisfaction. So basically, cruising is just like riding a plane – only it’s much slower yet much worth it.
Definitely, there are a lot of other reasons why cruising deserves to receive the kind of attention it is getting now. Singaporeans, and the rest of the world, are continuously finding new things to explore and experience; and obviously, going on a cruise will suffice that.
