We have fallen in love with cruising. Yes we still do other holidays however my husband and I find it relaxing, we get to visit other places, only unpack the once and can do as little or as much as we want onboard. Apart from alcohol everything is covered in the fare so it can be a cheap holiday as well, especially if you shop around for deals. Reply

My parents have been on a few and the tales they tell are fantastic.

anniebee says: I also love to go on cruises, in fact we are going on a big one in June. We don't drink so that's an expense we don't have to budget for. The price of cruises has come down over the years and they are very relaxing. If you've never been on one pick a small 10 day cruise to start with. You'll love it. Reply

giznjack says: Totally agree!! We love cruising, and next one is July 2016. We got an amazing deal, early bird price plus a free premium beverage package, for my brother in-law's 50th birthday. Can't wait :-) Reply

PGS says: Price wise when you consider all meals & accommodation is covered (if you use the buffet), they can be good value.
We've done two x three night cruises with P & O and really would not waste the time or money on a sea cruise again.
We would consider one of the European river cruises if the price was good enough, but not sea. Too boring. Reply

The cruise was a bit rough at sea part of the time as there had been a cyclone in the area. Glad the ship has stablisers. We went on the "Explorer of the Seas" They catered perfectly for special dietary needs. Bear in mind there was about 3,000 passengers on board and we didn't go to the same restruant evey night. As soon as the surname was mentioned the staff member's response at the entrance was special needs diet. She didn't even check the list, she remembered from over a week before. We had a 7 month baby with us. He won the staff's hearts. Reply
