Love All Inclusives? 9 Reasons Why You Should Try Cruising

You can't beat the value, entertainment, and experience you'll get!

Book by Mar 31, 2020

All-inclusive resorts have a lot to offer: food, drinks, entertainment, shopping, spa services, and a beautiful destination. However, on a cruise vacation, you get all of this and MORE.


Have you heard the phrase, “Variety is the spice of life”?  Well, variety is the spice of the cruising life, for sure! Cruises offer more variety which leads to a better overall value and experience. With further inspection and the list below, you’ll understand why you should give cruising a chance.


~ On a cruise, you get to explore multiple destinations for no additional cost. 

~ On a cruise, you have so many things to do. Norwegian cruises offer trivia, bowling, raffles, and art auctions, for starters. Plus a wide variety of entertainment on a cruise vacation. From Broadway-style singing and dancing shows to comedians, and everything in between, there is no room for boredom aboard a cruise with Norwegian!


~ Cruise prices, without excursions or extras, are often comparable to all-inclusive resort prices. For example, did you know that you can cruise to Hawaii with Norwegian for half the price of an all-inclusive resort vacation?


~ On a cruise ship, you have a wide variety of food choices. Norwegian Cruises offers many dining options, including a mixture of buffets, specialty restaurants, and main dining rooms. 


~ Cruise ships are very family-friendly and have amenities for all ages, including race tracks aboard Norwegian Joy and Norwegian Bliss, ziplining and rock climbing aboard Norwegian Breakaway and Laser Tag and a world of Virtual Reality aboard Norwegian Encore.


~ If Gambling is your thing cruise ships have casinos. And for the icing on the cake, Norwegian has the best casinos at sea!


~ While cruising, you have the option to completely disconnect. If you're staying on dry land, you will tend to do your normal routine of checking emails and responding to messages.  If you're on a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean, you can completely disconnect if you desire to.


~ Norwegian Cruise Line has some completely unique experiences that you won’t find at an all-inclusive. The Skyy® Vodka Ice Bar is a one-of-a-kind bar where everything is made from ice.  On a Norwegian cruise, if you’re a thrill-seeker, you can walk “The Plank,” which extends 8 feet from the edge of the ship out over the ocean. These are the types of things you wouldn’t necessarily be able to do at an all-inclusive resort and is what sets cruising apart from other vacations.


The variety and multiple ports of call that a cruise vacation offers is a big reason to give it a try. With so many departure ports to leave from, some of which you can get to without having to purchase airline tickets, and so many destinations to discover, a cruise vacation is one of the best ways to see the world.  And if your goal is to see the world and have an amazing time doing it, join a Norwegian cruise.  You can't beat the value, entertainment, and experience you'll get! 


Norwegian Cruise Line is known for their Free at Sea promotion and their Freestyle Dining that gives you the option of dining at any restaurant, anytime.
