Cruising is one of the most popular vacation get-a-ways for families and couples. Modern cruise ships are like floating cities with every imaginable amenity. Most cruises feature daily itineraries with tons of scheduled activities for cruisers of all ages. Passengers are free to participate in whatever activities interest them or do their own thing as they explore the ship. Cruise ships really come alive at night with live entertainment, parties, dance clubs, Broadway style shows, and so much more. If your family is like so many others and can never decide on anything, cruising may be the perfect vacation for you.
With around the clock activities and so much excitement, you are bound to work up a monstrous appetite. Not to worry, most cruise ships have 24-hour food service. You'll enjoy everything from fine dining in elegant main dining rooms to buffet style meals with a plethora of choices. Of course, if you prefer, simply order room service. On a cruise ship you always eat between meals, it's just what you do! grab a slice of pizza, burger, ice cream, whatever. Forget about that diet, you're on vacation! For a nominal fee you can dine at one of the ship's premier restaurants featuring regional cuisine prepared by an executive chef. Regardless of your tastes, you will never go hungry on a cruise ship.
Cruise vacations, believe it or not, are a great choice for travelers with food allergies. The cruise industry is very competitive as the different companies look to innovate and continually attract new passengers. Since most people associate cruising with buffets and great food, the cruise ship companies have become very accommodating to those with dietary restrictions. Chefs and servers are specially trained to handle food allergy concerns and avoid cross contamination. Obviously, the buffet is not the best place for someone with a food allergy but the main dining rooms on most cruise lines are very accommodating. Regardless of your allergy, you won’t go hungry, and more importantly, you can feel safe while enjoying your meal.
For all you gamblers, most ships offer Vegas style casinos featuring slots, dice, table games, and video poker. Casinos are always a hot spot at night and often less crowded during the day. Most ships host blackjack and slot tournaments during the daytime to get more people into the casino area. Not into casino gambling but still want to win some money, BINGO! Bingo is a very popular daytime activity on cruise ships, especially on sea days. Please note that Disney cruise ships do not have casinos.
