When you think about traveling the world, you probably picture boarding a plane and flying to sunnier climes. But actually, traveling by water is something that shouldn’t be overlooked! If you don’t like flying or just want to do things differently, it’s an incredible way to see the sights and enjoy every minute of the journey. Here are a few methods you could consider.
A cruise is an excellent way to travel, as the journey itself is just as fun as the destination. You have everything you need on board from shops to restaurants to pools and activities, but then you get the bonus of amazing sights and being able to stop off at various points. If you’re not keen on flying but have always wanted to visit a certain place in the world, this would be a good way to go. Cruises fell out of fashion for a while and were labeled as the kind of holiday enjoyed by more elderly folk. But they’ve recently become much more popular again, with new ships like Quantum/ Anthem/ Ovation of the Seas being released they’re appealing to a younger market again. Although cruises are something that can be enjoyed by everyone and is especially good for families with children. As everything you need is in one place, and you have easy access to your room when they start getting tired.
