If you've never been on a cruise ship before, the idea of getting aboard a boat rather than a more traditional mode of travelling away, such as on an aeroplane can be quite a transition. Most of us are quite clued up on flying to Europe or road tripping to Wales, for example, and most of us feel comfortable sticking to what we know. But in doing so, you could be missing out on the opportunity of a lifetime, because there are much more benefits attached to going on a cruise, in comparison to flying. Here are 8 reasons just to get you started. 
Cruises Are Cost-Effective
There's no need to budget for food, travel, accommodation, etc. separately because most cruise ships are all-inclusive. This means your entire holiday for sleeping and eating is covered. Not to mention the onboard activities too! 
A No Worry Guarantee 
The stress of booking a holiday abroad can be crippling. You need to scour the best hotel at the best price, along with flights that will suit you and your family. However, with cruising, everything is already pre planned for you. You simply just need to choose the cruise you want to go on, for instance, Royal Caribbean deals, and then just book it, and show up. There's no waiting in airport queues waiting for your bags to be checked, or worrying about how long your coach will take to get you from the airport to your hotel. With your accommodation also being your form of travel, you have a lot less to worry about when booking a cruise.
Great For Foodies
Cruise ships are renowned for their delicious food and with your all-inclusive package, it's available 24/7! This is especially attractive for the foodies amongst you who want to sink their teeth into an array of delicious cuisine. From breakfast until dinner, you will have a variety of food options to choose from. And so, fussy eaters also needn't worry about whether there will be something that they like to eat.
Make New Friends
Your experience onboard a cruise ship will never be a lonely one. There shall be an abundance of people from all walks of life to meet and great on your holiday. So whether you're single, or part of a family and you enjoy people watching or making new friends, you'll always be in good company on your holiday cruise.
See The World
The major drawback of staying in a hotel abroad is that it stays put! A hotel that swims the ocean, however, means you are continually moving and witnessing new scenery without little effort from you. Plus, you shall be taken to multiple destinations, without needing to pack and unpack your case more than once. Boarding a cruise ship is the best way to see the world while conserving your energy for your other fun activities on board.
Wifi Detox
It can be challenging for most ships to get wifi while out at sea. But if you are genuinely looking to unwind, is this such a bad thing? For those who want to break away from work or commitments in their day to day life, a cruise ship should be your first port of call. We're all guilty once we're abroad, of checking 1 or 10 work emails and glimpsing at Facebook. By stepping aboard a ship, you can truly disconnect from your devices, as on most cruises, you'll have little to no way of using them online.
Variety Of Ships To Choose From
There is no one set architectured ship, each and every one is different. And so it's essential to take a look at what's out there before you commit to a cruise. Is it an onboard water world you're looking for with twisty slides and a hot tub? Or are you a film buff who wants the chance to go to the cinema when the mood strikes? Think of a cruise ship is a mini-city offering different entertainment and facilities. You just need to choose the one that's right for you.
Idyllic Setting For Romance
If you are in the honeymoon period and want to impress your new half by whisking them across the ocean. Or maybe you want to propose, or reignite your love for one another, booking a holiday cruise is the perfect way to romance your significant other. Imagine a relaxing holiday with scenic views and obviously your own rendition of the famous Titanic scene. A cruise is far more romantic and stress-free than travelling through the air.

As described above, there are many reasons why a cruise ship could be the best way for you and your family to disconnect and unwind with ease.
