Hey everyone! I am doing a powerpoint presentation for my computer class. I decided to do one on cruising! I want to demonstrate to the class why they should cruise. So if someone asked you why cruise? what would you say? Thanks for your help.

Try staying at a luxury resort with all meals and entertainment and activities included for $100.00 a day.

No Rick.. its more like "try staying in four different countries in one week and have all of your transportion, meals and entertainment included for <$100 a day."

It truly is the value vacation- 5 star meals, great entertainment, beautiful weather, and absolutely NO worries. You go to sleep after visiting Cozumel and wake up the next day in Grand Cayman. You didn't have to plan or figure out anything...

For me, it is staying in a fabulous hotel that I probably could not afford if it was on land, have someone care for me all the time, with food and cleaning my room, entertainment, etc, without worrying about the cost. Finally, it is going to unique destinations and doing extraordinary excursions.

Good luck with your presentation.

Let's see...

As a family, there is something for everyone. Each person can do what they want and all come back together at dinner to discuss their day. They even have organized activities for the little ones so that moms can actually relax. Not to mention being waited on hand and foot. That's what I call a vacation!! Hope all goes well with your project.

You can travel from city to city, even country to country without repacking your suitcase and changing hotel rooms everyday.

You have an opportunity to try new places and new adventures without having to committ to "X" number of days at one place - - it goes back to the "new place every day" issue. If you can't decide on which Hawaiian island to spend a week, try a cruise, see each island and decide which you liked best... not sure if a week in Jamaica is the best vacation, stop and explore for the day to decide. Some folks consider the ship the destination..... plenty to do.

Well put, susanmaz! I think some first-time cruiser's expectations are too high. I hate hearing, "We just didn't have enough time to do this or that." No, you can't appreciate Florence or Barcelona or Athens in a day; or Venice or St. Petersburg in an overnight; that's not what cruising is about. It's about getting a taste of a country or city or island, as you say, and deciding which places you would like to go back and explore in depth.

Thanks guys for all your help. I am also trying to get my best friend to cruise, but she is not having it. I am giving her all these good reasons; yet she would rather do an all inclusive to Jamaica for 7 days. I am telling her you can still get this great service and see more places then staying in one location. I guess my cruise just spoiled me and I have only been on one.
