The cruise industry brings in almost $40 billion on an annual basis, with thousands of passengers hitting the high seas.

But could a cruise be the right type of vacation for you? Absolutely!

Grab some sunblock and hit the deck. We’re detailing five of the best reasons why you should take a cruise.

1. A Temporary Escape

Life can get stressful, to say the least. Everyone needs to blow off some steam now and then. Taking a cruise is a perfect opportunity to watch your worries drift away.

Give your email and cellphone a break, and take some time to relax. Work will still be there when you get back. For now, focus on some quality rest and relaxation.

And if you do need to respond to an email or get in touch with the mainland, most cruise ships offer WiFi for a small fee.

2. Cruises Offer Something for the Whole Family

If you’ve ever tried to plan a vacation for a family before, you know how much of a challenge it can be.

Your teenager wants to do something exciting, your youngest wants to play video games, and as for you and your spouse…well, you just want some peace and quiet.

Cruise ships offer entertainment and activities for people of all ages. From arcades to stand-up comedy to fitness classes, there’s enough to see and do that everyone in your family can find something to love.

3. The Food

Cruises give you access to near-limitless food options. Whether you’re craving a giant burger or you’d rather indulge your sweet tooth, cruise lines have some of the finest food in the world.

That’s due, in part, to many companies partnering with world-renowned chefs. Celebrity chefs like Guy Fieri, Buddy Valastro, and Nobu Matsuhisa each have restaurants on cruise ships.

Of course, if you’d rather skip the fancy dining in favor of comfort food, you still have plenty of options from room service to buffet-style dining rooms.

4. Explore Exotic Locations

We often forget how big the world is. Life is short, and seeing the planet’s most beautiful sites is something we should all strive to do. You can rest assured that if you have a fun locale in mind, there’s likely a liner out there for you.

Take Celerity Cruises, for example, whose cruises from Miami can take you to both Mexico and the Caribbean.

5. They’re Affordable

It’s a misconception that taking a cruise is an expensive endeavor. Cruising is one of the most affordable types of vacation out there, especially when you consider that most cruises are all-inclusive.

The trick is to look for deals and discounts. Check with travel sites often, as they promote hot upcoming deals. You may also want to check with your favorite local stores. Did you know that you can snag an affordable vacation from Costco?

Also, cruising during the off-season can help you save even more cash, so you can splurge on souvenirs.

Life’s Short, Take a Cruise
