Are you looking for a unique way to spend your holiday? A cruise vacation may just be what you are looking for. Cruise vacations that are offered by P and O cruises and other reputable companies offer exceptional service which means you just have to sit back, relax and enjoy the attractions. Here are a few more reasons why going on a cruise vacation would be a preferable option:

You get one ticket that covers most of your basic expenses

The ticket for a cruise vacation covers accommodation, entertainment, meals, laundry and transportation. If you are looking for a customised holiday package, a luxury ticket will be ideal. It mainly includes extra privileges such as a seat an the VIP section during theatre performances, chauffeur services once you reach stopover cities, a wider range of meal-choices, exclusive services such as relaxing massages at the spa, you get to choose from a wide variety of richly elegant and spacious rooms, and more. Ultimately, the one-ticket-covers-all feature gives you greater peace of mind as you don’t have to worry about having cash on you all the time or your expenses on the trip eating into your essentials budget.

You get visit various destinations in one trip

A cruise vacation enables you to visit numerous assorted exotic destinations in one trip. This means that you may get to visit several countries, experience different cultures and enjoy meeting and mingling with people from different backgrounds both in the ship and at the port cities. This is a huge plus, especially if you like networking or meeting new people. You may never know, one might even find a life-long friend or partner on one of these trips.

Cruise ships offer a variety of activities for the whole family

A cruise vacation enables you to enjoy the holiday whether alone or as a family. This is because there is usually a wide range of activities for everyone to enjoy. If you have kids for example, kid shows such as magic show performances are likely to be there, while fun-filled structures such as bouncing castles and water-slides are usually available. Adults on the other hand can enjoy swimming, dancing lessons, aerobics, and more. One can also relax with a cold beer at the bar or take a chance at a lucky bet at the on-board casino. For couples, a romantic dinner out on the deck under a clear sky with a full moon out into the sea is likely to be a memorable one.

Walking across the Golden Gate bridge is a common goal for visitors to San Francisco, myself included. I arrived at the San Francisco side of the bridge from a hop-on-hop-off bus and was ready to go. I actually wanted to cycle, but couldn’t see any immediate cycle rental shops, so me and Harue decided to walk it. Walking does have the advantage of allowing more time to take in the length and size of the bridge. It’s a huge structure and would take a cyclist maybe 10-15 minutes at a casual pace, and a walker at least 30 minutes usually. Read the rest! \(^u^)/ →

Ferry Building

I previously mentioned the Ferry Building of Pier 1/2 in San Francisco, but I feel it needs more coverage as it’s a destination in itself. I don’t think the name of the building needs explaining, but the contents is all about food. The famous Vietnamese restaurant needs to be booked ahead if you plan to go there (something I didn’t realise until I walked up and enquired. But I did manage to time the date I visited to a Wednesday, when the farmers market is open from 10AM to 6PM. If you happen to be in San Francisco on a Wednesday, then definitely go and indulge in the organic food.
