Why Cruisers Love What They Do


On our most recent cruise, we encountered a young media person who admitted she "didn't quite get cruising."

We filled her in, of course, since she asked.

Then we found an email from friends who recently spent 20 days on the Coral Princess. They left Florida on this Panama Canal cruise that will re-position the ship for its annual series of Alaska cruises.

Here is what our friends — Andy and Barbara Gibbins — had to say:

"We thought we might find 20 days at sea a little long…but no, we have had a great holiday and actually loved those sea days which are very relaxing as you can be as busy or as lazy as you wish!

"Actually, what's not to enjoy? Our bed is made each morning. The room and bathroom are cleaned twice a day. All our meals are prepared for us and the variety is fabulous: The spa is at your beck and call, the track and gym are open and the classes are great (well, you do have to walk off some of those meals).

"We loved laying by the pool and having the waiters bring drinks. The shops are open. The entertainment is terrific and, of course, there's a casino for your dollars!"

In a nutshell, that is why people like cruising.
