The Cruise Dream

Have you ever dreamed of a cruise? Intimate dinners with family or perhaps someone new? A close evening of dancing followed by a moonlight stroll around the deck, watching the full moon? Perhaps you dream of a huge family reunion as you go from port to port and re-establish closeness. Whatever your fantasy, it undoubtedly is peaceful, joyous, and loving.

The opportunities on a cruise are almost unlimited for parties with old friends, or to seek out new friendships, or having an extended vacation with family and friends. When you book a cruise you open a door to a new way of life.

For some engaged couples, a cruise is the perfect solution to the thousands of decisions that need to be made. The cruise consultant can arrange almost all the details except the brides' dress, and sometimes that, too. Some of the services offered include having a member of the clergy available to perform your service, a reception dinner that is held in a most exquisite setting, and of course it will include dancing, usually with a live band and your choice of music style.

Being on the cruise, your honeymoon trip is all planned. The stops at exotic places allow private, intimate time for the bride and groom, while the rest of the wedding party can continue to also have fun. One of the biggest wedding challenges is cleaning up afterwards, and that's one of the specialties of the cruise ship staff. You don't have to lift a finger or even supervise the staff.

Cruise ships delight in serving their guests of all ages. They provide supervised play time for the children, with a multitude of games and outings for the adults. Families can truly 'play' without the stress of shopping and cooking. Family outings or reunions on a cruise ship are becoming quite popular, as Great-Grandma can participate as well as the two-year-old. The whole family can bond with memories that won't be erased.

For the millions who live with health challenges, a cruise can be a perfect solution. Major cruise lines are careful to anticipate the needs of a large segment of society and provide handicap-accessible rooms and restrooms. Those with diabetes can have a diet served that doesn't harm them. The goal of the cruise ship management is that everyone, regardless of health, have their needs met.

Trips to exotic locations with sandy beaches, palm trees, and sunshine every day are typical of many visions that the word 'cruise' conjures up. Yet, just as typical are dreams of the Alaskan coast and shrimp canneries and penguins sunning themselves. Some of these cruises may last a week or a month, while others might last a day or a weekend. Whatever fits your time schedule, your budget, and your fantasy can be arranged.

Never give up your dream of a cruise. The next time the urge bites you to get away, whether for a month, a weekend or an evening, just go for it!
