As much as the word “cruise” excites you, it also raises a series of questions in your mind. So, we’re here to bust these myths for you and help you explore the world the sea way.
Myth 1 – All the time is spent in the sea
Yes, that is what most of us believe. But, in reality, a cruise is a rendition of both, a crazy time at sea and planned drop-offs at the shores. You can go sledging in Alaska, gaze upon the Fjords of Norway, visit the Merlion in Singapore, relish a soothing spa, enjoy rock climbing and play mini golf while on the cruise. A cruise is surely much more than just fun in the sea. It’s a tight schedule but flexible enough for you to make the most of both the shore excursions and adventures onboard the ship. So, one thing ticked off the list!
Myth 2- Food served on a cruise is not fresh
There is no doubt that one of the most important things to make a vacation the perfect getaway is the food. And what if, you constantly live in the fear of consuming stored food? This clearly won’t let you be at peace during your vacation. But this actually is a myth, all the ingredients and put into silver trays (to enable cleaning easily) and loaded into the ship before it sets off for the cruise. Storage, Preparation and Cooking are done in separate rooms to prevent cross- contamination. Royal Caribbean cruises do not plate a dish until the waiter is on his way to deliver it to the guest. And most importantly, the crew gets down and every port they stop at, to refill the stock. Also, most of the restaurants on a cruise have live kitchens.
Myth 3- You can’t cruise alone
Ever wondered how having a cabin to yourself, enjoying the solo mecca clubs, riding the surf simulator or singing a karaoke all by yourself or making friends through roll calls, feel? Wont it give you a break from the humdrum life and the chance to ponder and get food for thought? It’s an addiction. It’s blissful. So, are you sure you don’t want to experience the pleasure of making new friends and finding new dining companions on the ‘solo friendly’ Azamara Club Cruises?
Myth 4- You won’t have time to relax
Itineraries are designed keeping in mind the fact that this is your time to relax, to rejuvenate and get back to work, all fresh and happy. Then why would you be made to run around so much that you go home even more exhausted? Cruise itineraries are planned in such a way that you don’t miss out on both exploring the shores, as well as enjoy the activities and adventures on a respective ship. So, it’s a misnomer that you would miss out on sleep and food. And as far as food goes, Indian food is available on all the ships, so no more hassles?
Myth 5- Views aren’t that great
Really? Absolutely not! Cruises take you to places that you wouldn’t normally plan to go to, such as the picturesque Alaska, where the beautiful expanses of snow and water with the clouds hovering over mountains can be a sight you’d remember in your mind forever or the breathtaking architecture of Europe coupled with some mouth-watering delicacies. You can really experience those once in a lifetime moments in the forests of Galapagos or the perfect underwater moments in the Caribbean. Keep looking out of the windows to catch that picture perfect moment in all of these destinations.
