Many of us have had our doubts about the phrase: "It's not about the destination; it's about the journey." However, people who have gone on a cruise are doubters no more.
Some people may pick their cruises based on major destinations, but for most the joy of cruising is the best part of the vacation. If you've never been on a cruise before, it may be difficult to imagine: it's a gigantic, self-contained, floating resort with every type of luxury amenity you can imagine. Now imagine that you're on your way to a place you've never been, to see sights and hear sounds youâ€™ve never even dreamed of. Sounds too good to be true, doesn't it?
World cruises are truly in a league of their own. Imagine getting on a cruise ship in Los Angeles and sailing all the way to London. Think of everything you'd see and experience along the way; picture the countries you'd pass by as you make your way through the world's oceans!
When sailing from L.A. to London, for example, you'd skirt around the west coast of the United States and down past Mexico, stopping in quickly to shop in a Mexican market or trek to some ancient Mayan ruins. Then you'd continue on your journey, possibly making your way around South America.
By the time you make it to your destination in Europe, you'll have seen more of the world in one trip than most people see in a lifetime!
During the long relaxing days at sea, in between your destinations, you could plan luxurious spa treatments, enjoy world-class cuisine, gamble in the casino, and much more. You can do everything and nothing. Some people just want to relax on the sun deck and immerse themselves in a book. You can do that, too!
Then thereâ€™s the best part of taking a world cruise: the decision making is left to other people! Prepare to feel more relaxed than you have ever been, and more aware of your place in this big, big world of ours.
