One of the best ways to see the world is by sailing in a beautiful cruise ship. The cruise ship industry continues to grow at amazing pace as more and more people discover this relaxing way to see the world. The simple reality is that once you unpack your suitcase your work is done. Your days are completely your own and you can do as little or as much as you want.
Before booking your cruise, be sure to check out all the amenities the various ships have to offer. There are numerous ships with many different types of cruising options from barefoot sailing to luxury pampering. There should be no problem coming up with an option to suit your specific vacation goal.
The typical cruise day starts early in the morning with the biggest decision being whether to take a jog around the ship, have breakfast at the endless buffet, or just sleep in. The activity roster is going to be filled from morning until late night with a myriad of different things to keep you busy if that is what you are looking for. The days at port will tend to have fewer options of onboard activities as you will be off the ship exploring one of your many destinations. The days sailing at sea you will be at your leisure once again.
When packing for your trip you will want to be sure you know what the different dress codes will be for the evening dinners. A typical 7 day cruise usually has 2 formal nights, 1 or 2 semi formal and the rest casual. Men will typically need a suit or a tuxedo for the formal nights depending on the cruise line. Women would wear dresses, or fancy pantsuits for the formal nights. Your cruise itinerary will completely go over the dress codes of your ship.
