Going on a cruise gives new meaning and importance to the journey, over the destination. Travelling itself becomes a fun-filled experience because who says getting from one place to another has to be in the confines of a car, or stuck on a seemingly never-ending plane ride with nothing to do? Onboard a cruise ship the astounding array of amenities available provides a quality of total surrender. Once you’ve chosen your destination and booked and paid for your cruise, there are no other major decisions left to make, except which restaurant to peruse for the evening! These days, most ships even have a cashless system, with a passenger ID card or wristband for on-board extras such as spas or shopping.
Modern cruise ships are often the size of small cities, with just about every imaginable activity or amenity. On Royal Caribbean International’s Quantum of the Seas, passengers can play on bumper cars, go roller skating, ride the North Star capsule for 360-degree views – and, best of all, enjoy the first-ever skydiving simulator at sea. The whole point of a cruise is to escape the rigours of modern-day life and to try new activities. For those worrying about inclement weather during sailing, or even seasickness, take precautions with pressure bands, drugs or natural remedies. The steerage (midship) is usually the place to be. Failing this, find an outside spot on the lower deck for that fixed point on the horizon. If possible, pick an itinerary that hugs the coast. For those worried about bad weather ruining your cruise, Royal Caribbean International’s Quantum of the Seas has the largest indoor active space that even offers sporting activities such as basketball or table tennis.
