Are you unsure whether a cruise trip is the right option for you? Although there are many obvious benefits that come from a nearly all-inclusive vacation with a planned destination There are many undiscovered benefits of cruising Indonesia that may surprise you.

Cruise holidays are vacations that allows you to relax to unwind and to explore new destinations. A typical cruise ship vacation includes every meal, world class entertainment, enrichment lectures and spa. Additionally, the cruise ship provides transportation and accommodation. This is only the tip of the Iceberg.

Seven Benefits of Cruising - Now or later

These are the benefits of cruising, regardless whether you're sailing right now or in the future.

Take a trip off the beaten track to destinations with no long waits

Though most cruise ships originate from cities that are large and go to major ports of call, many go to less-known locations.

Certain are tropical and amazing like Moorea, French Polynesia. Others are equally captivating. We've seen endless bicycle rows in Haarlem (Netherlands) as well as we visited an iron ore processing station in Port Hedland, Australia and have seen a unique wooden Moses statue in an Itajai church, Brazil.

Cruising can convert transit time into entertainment

Off the beaten track We travel to some amazing places. The variety of activities on board makes our travel days enjoyable.

It's the opposite when we attempt to reach these remote areas by ourselves. It's harder to travel to remote areas if they are more obscure. This could lead to boring, long drives on the road or, even more gruelling, lengthy airport waits.

Discover something new

In addition to having entertainment, free enrichment opportunities are just one of the many advantages of cruising Indonesian islands. Nearly all of us participate in some sort of trivia game, dance class or take part in seminars.

But that's not the only thing we do. Every day we attempt something different. Our first cruise with Azamara, we took up watercolour painting. During our cruise to reposition, we learned to play the Ukulele. On one ship, the astronomy enrichment program included night star-gazing on deck as well as an indoor portable planetarium.

Someone else will do the research and planning

It's not necessary to prepare ahead. Every ship we have sailed on offers an excursion desk at the shore as well as experts on the destination available to answer questions. For those who are not researchers the idea of having someone else take care of the job is among the advantages of cruising.

A expert on destinations will provide you with the inside scoop on how to visit ports. You can also watch the replay on the stateroom TV if you didn't catch it.

Only unpack once

We usually take a light journey and don't carry of our luggage. I am a fan of carrying one bag and spreading it around. Many people overpack. This is why it's essential to only unpack one time and then go to a variety of cities.

Shop till you drop

Shopping can be expensive regardless of how much you pack. Sailing one way, to your home city, is the perfect solution.

The most delicious meals are cooked by someone else Many ships cater to those with food allergies.

Mealtime is a highlight for many cruisers, offering food that is delicious and generally in unlimited amounts. You'll never be hungry while onboard a cruise ship, regardless of whether you like buffets or other specialty eateries.

Catering to food allergies is a major advantage of cruising for me. For some it might seem insignificant. Every meal in an on-shore restaurant requires me to notify the server about my food allergies.
