The 3 Top Cruising Myths Debunked

Ah cruises, old people, ballroom dancing and playing chess all day, right? Well, you’re in for a surprise as cruises have certainly had a makeover and now they’re one of the best most fun packed holiday options available. From cruises for families to 18-30 holidays on a cruise, there’s literally a cruise liner for everyone with cruises heading to some of the most incredible destinations in the world. Here’s 3 of the most popular cruise myths debunked, to make sure you’re not put off booking one for your next holiday:

  • Cruises are for Pensioners

Not True. Whilst, a lot of elderly people do go on cruises, there are specific cruise lines which target older people and have attractions and events designed specifically for an older clientele. Cruises designed for families and young people are fun packed with tons of attractions, entertainment options and on-board activities, so you can expect your days to be jam packed with fun, rather than having a snooze and a cup of tea. Check out the amazing selection of different cruises available at the Bolsover Cruise Club to find the perfect one for you.

  • Cruises are Boring

This one is so false, it’s almost laughable. Whilst most cruises do have several days where you’re at sea, on route to other destinations, there’s no reason to be bored. With on deck surf simulators, cinema rooms, spa treatments available, kids’ clubs, climbing walls and culinary classes and more all available, you’ll find something to do no matter what your interests are. Additionally, cruises give you a lot of opportunity to meet new people and make new friends, which makes them tons more exciting, you never know who you could be dining next to each evening so always make the effort to chat to people, you never know it could be the start of a lifelong friendship.

  • I’m Sea Sick so I Can’t Cruise

The sheer size of the cruise ships means that the chances of you getting sea sickness whilst on board are very slim. The new technology on most cruises is also designed to stabilise them at sea much more so unless the sea is very rough you shouldn’t feel anything at all. To combat any slight sea sickness be sure to take tablets with you and always ask for a cabin in the centre of the cruise to mitigate the potential of feeling any excess motion.

So, now all of your reservations about going on a cruising holiday have been debunked, it’s time to book your first of many cruising holidays.
