Here are a few Common Cruising Myths!
•I’ll be bored.
•Most cruise passengers are full of 70-80 year olds.
•I might get seasick.
•Besides eating and drinking around the pool and standing in those buffet lines, there’s not a lot to do on a cruise.
Do these common assumptions sound familiar? Cruises have changed over the years and they offer so much more for everyone!
Cruising is a fun (and very economical) alternative to those Caribbean hotels. On my recent cruise, I found a huge variety of ages on board: kids, teenagers, and college students (luckily not too many of these) on spring break, baby boomers, many like us, and a mix of active, older folks. The only people that we saw playing shuffleboard were some kids about to disembark.
As for seasickness, I’m prone to it, myself, and we did encounter some rough seas and a few high winds on our voyage. Not once did I feel even the slightest bit queasy. These big new ships are incredibly stable and have special stabilizers to help keep the boat as steady as possible.
On our last 6-day cruise vacation, we enjoyed two full days “at-sea” during which I could rock-climb on a wall, play basketball, rollerblade, ice-skate, go see a comedy or show, use a fully-equipped gym, learn to surf, or simply relax at the pool or the spa. Such fun and always something going on. You can stay as busy (or not busy) as you'd like!
On shore, we kayaked the mangroves in the Caymans and went white water rafting in Jamaica. Each day was a blast and gave us the opportunity to explore a foreign country without having to pack and unpack at each new destination!
