Many young people think going on a cruise holiday is just for old people, which is a common misconception, in fact now many people under fifty are taking a cruise holiday, recent research shows that a third of holiday makers who have booked a cruise holiday are under thirty.

Popularity in the younger generation is increasing because of the wide range of cruise holidays available; there are ships which can cater for families with a wide range of entertainment themed around young children such as the Disney cruise line. If you have older teenagers or like lots of onboard entertainment then the Royal Caribbean have plenty of ships that fit the bill, especially their large vessels like the Oasis of the Seas. Even smaller ships feature signature chefs, wine tasting, adult only cruises and onboard gyms and spas which are perfect if you’re looking for romantic holidays for couples.

If you like to explore a lot on holiday, then a cruise holiday which stops off at many ports and has a bursting itinerary will be for you. Many cruises stop off at numerous ports and in general you get a whole day to explore your destination if you wish, with numerous excursions offered. It’s a great way to see lots of popular holiday destinations, such as the Mediterranean or the Caribbean, without having to worry about getting around.
