3 Reasons to Take a Last Minute Cruise
Posted on January 30, 2017
Are you dreaming of a tropical paradise, but can’t seem to break away from your everyday routine? These 3 reasons may give you the push you need to book that last minute cruise.
1. You Need a Vacation
Are you one of those people who never manage to get away from work? Do you let your paid-time-off pile up until you eventually lose it at the end of the year? Maybe you secretly want to take a vacation, but are too scared to leave work.
Whatever your excuse is, we’re here to tell you that you need a vacation. Taking a break from your day-to-day grind is actually more productive in the long run. Giving your brain that much needed break can kick-start creative thinking allowing you to generate new ideas, approaches and problem-solving techniques. Plus, it’s good for your health. Research indicates that taking vacations results in reduced stress and anxiety levels. Workaholics take note — going on vacation is a must.
2. Cruises are Easy to Plan
Planning a cruise can actually be easier than putting together a typical land vacation. Cruises are for the most part all-inclusive. That means lodging, port fees, and food are all part of the package. You won’t have to think about how you’re going to travel between cities, search for multiple hotels in your price range or worry about where you’re going to eat your next meal.
You can even have a travel agent take care of booking your cruise if you’re too busy to organize the vacation yourself.
3. You Can Save Money
The cost of a cruise can vary, but one of the best ways to get a bargain is to purchase your ticket at the last minute. Cruise lines will get a clear picture of who’s actually sailing about 60 to 90 days before embarkation. When a cruise ship has a lot of space to fill, they’ll deeply discount tickets to try and sell out. If you’re flexible with your vacation, you can get a great deal on an unsold cabin.
So what are you waiting for? Book that last minute cruise vacation! You’ll be glad you did when you return to reality relaxed, refueled and ready to be productive.
