Stress-free traveling is just one reason why cruises are the best type of vacation. Passengers can enjoy the sights, sounds, and offerings of different faraway places while leaving the travel logistics to the ship captain.
There are plenty of activities onboard as well as the adventures that await when the ship reaches port. On top of that, there’s usually not just one port but several destinations to visit. It’s as if cruise passengers get several vacations in one.
Here are six reasons why cruises are the best type of vacation:
1. Great value — For one price, cruise travelers not only enjoy the sea, but they also have food service with meals and buffets throughout the day and night, according to ABC News. Accommodations are provided in comfy quarters and there’s day and evening entertainment. Plus the cost includes travel to different destinations.

2. Family friendly — Parents can enjoy dining together while their children enjoy plenty of onboard activities. Many cruise ships offer age-related entertainment for young children or teens. Sit by the pool while the kids play video games or enjoy play areas.
3. Unique itineraries — Some destinations are difficult to get to by land. Not with a cruise. Passengers can travel to faraway destinations such as Grenada, Anguilla, Hawaii, Europe, or even the Amazon, which would be more expensive when traveling by plane and staying in hotels, Cruise Critic explains.

4. Fun while learning — Many cruise lines include hosts who provide expertise on oceanographic or environmental issues, usually centered around the cruise. There are educational programs for kids on marine life. If the cruise includes faraway journeys to places like the Galapagos or other adventures, expert guides and equipment are available for nature lovers and photographers.
5. Relaxation — As soon as the trip begins, there’s no need for vacation planning. Cruise lines let passengers choose the itinerary, cabin, and tours available, Fodors notes. No stress about researching what to do. You only have to unpack once and you’re off.
6. See the world without hassle — Flying to Europe, Africa, or India might include frequent dealings with customs, transportation, visas, or language barriers. A cruise package, however, does all the work for you. You get transportation to places wherever you land. English-speaking tour guides are immediately available in foreign countries.
