Cruising doesn’t have to mean committing to a two or three-week trip. There are lots of mini cruises available, making it possible to sneak away on a weekend cruise.
Here are 10 Reasons to Take a Mini Cruise:
1. Test it Out
If you’re brand new to the world of cruising, a mini-cruise is a great way to test out the waters. Investing in a mini cruise is a sensible move instead of jumping into a two week commitment. Use this time to see if you get seasick and claustrophobic. You can also check out the food and accommodations, being bored, or simply realize that cruises are not for you.
2. Check out Other Ships
Even if you’re not new to cruising, you might find out that you enjoy a mini cruise while using that time to test a new ship, cruise line or destination before you make the switch.
3. Holiday for Less
If you’re on a budget but want to experience your holiday with a little luxury. You’ll feel like royalty as you enjoy the luxurious amenities cruises can give you. Enjoy 24-hour room service, traditional afternoon tea, and a nightly turndown without the crazy expense a regular luxury holiday would be.
4. Mini Vacation
If you don’t have a lot of time, a mini-cruise is the perfect choice for a quick getaway. Even a two-night cruise can take you to another country! How fun would it be to tell your colleagues you went to France over the weekend?
5. Don’t Leave Far From Home
Taking a mini cruise is a great way to find out more about where you live. You can pack much more into a few days then if you had to drive somewhere.
6. Pretend You are Famous
It’s possible to taste the high life without breaking the bank when you take a mini cruise instead.
7. No Airport Hassles
Do a no-fly mini-cruise to cut out the airport hassles. Many lines sail from other ports too, so it’s possible to choose an on-the-doorstep departure.
8. Everything Without Leaving
A mini cruise allows you to cram everything possible into the time you have available without leaving the ship. On some Royal Caribbean ships you can surf, skydive or ice skate, with the luxury of walking back to your cabin to change before heading out to dinner.
9. Celebrate a Party
Choosing a themed cruise to celebrate a birthday, takes all the hassle out of the organisation.
Holidays are perfect for mini cruises. Add a mini cruise to your holiday vacation to make it memorable.
