What's There To Do on a Cruise Ship?

Posted June 27th, 2014

Whether you’re travelling solo, accompanying your partner or sightseeing together as a family, there is so much to see and do on board a cruise.

From lying lazily in the sun to partying at all hours of the night, it is unlikely that you'll find yourself twiddling your thumbs. To help you decide if a cruise is right for you, we've put together a list of what you can do on a cruise.

Eat like there’s no tomorrow

After being on a cruise for more than one week, you’ll probably never feel like eating again. Not in a bad way of course, but in a way that you’ll be feeling fuller for longer.
Whether you're cruising the shores of Australia or on a luxury European river cruisethere are so many wonderful and delicious food places to choose from on a cruise - you won’t be left wondering what to eat! From signature fine cuisine, dramatic dining rooms and exotic ingredients to casual dining, all you can eat buffets and 24 hour room service, there is something to suit even the fussiest of taste buds.

And if you’re craving something sweet later in the night, some cruises even offer an extravagant midnight chocolate fondue buffet!

Relax, rejuvenate and burn some calories

To counterbalance the food intake, make a quick visit to the fitness centre and burn some calories. If you’re into keeping fit and staying active, take part in some of the many leisure activities cruises have to offer, including mini golf, sea surf simulators, an ice skating rink and many more.

However, if warming up and bronzing your skin sounds more like you, then save yourself a spot near the poolside and rejuvenate as you sip away at your chilled daiquiri.

Dance the night away

Cruises are well known for providing an amazing variety of entertainment options for every kind of traveller.

With a full spectrum of entertainment options throughout the night, in addition to casinos, night clubs, live music lounges and theatre performances; you’ll find yourself having fun for hours.
Be transported into another world filled with glitz, glamour and imagination while you enjoy spectacular singing, comedians, dancers and magician’s performances.

Buy a new wardrobe

Attention to all you shoppers! Grab a great deal on everything from vacation keepsakes to fine jewellery at some of the shops on board. Take advantage of the duty-free stores and treat yourself to some new garments.

Learn something new everyday

Immerse yourself in the never ending on board demonstrations. Watch how a large block of ice can be carved into a dolphin, learn how to cook like a professional or fold a towel into a realistic looking monkey shape. There are some pretty cool skills to learn on board a cruise which you can take home and show off to your friends and family.

The experts at Cruiseabout can recommend a cruise to suit every taste and budget! For more information on cruise holidays, please contact a Cruiseabout cruise specialist or call 0800 22 11 14.
