5 Reasons to Book a Cruise Today!

We could tell you 500 reasons why you should book a cruise today. But we know it’ll only take minor convincing (if that!) for you to plan a trip. So, in order to give you enough time to book your cruise when you’ve finished this blog, we’ve narrowed down our very extensive list to 5.


We’re convinced that there is nothing better than being out on the water. It’s invigorating, peaceful, and calming all at the same time. One of our favorite parts of any cruise we go on is watching the sun set over the deep blue sea with a cocktail in hand. At that moment we don’t have a care in the world… Except for possibly grabbing a slice of pizza before dinner.


In our book, embarking on a Carnival cruise is the epitome of relaxation. Stress and obligations go out the window from the moment you step onto the ship. It’s a go-at-your-own-pace, do-what-you-want-when-you-want kind of a trip. Mid morning brunch? Sure. Drinks on the Lido deck? Why not. Afternoon bingo followed by a dip in the pool? Yes please! We love the freedom of going at our own pace when we’re on a cruise. While there are certainly no limits when it comes to daily activities, there is also no shame in taking a nap. Or three.

Our mouths are already beginning to water as we anticipate our next cruise. The food is THAT good. Even after seven days at sea we leave bummed that we didn’t get to try a certain dish because the options are literally endless. The Carnival team does an impeccable job serving up fresh, tasty, and exotic dishes day after day. It seems as though every night we’re trying something new – whether it’s escargot or a fish that’s unique to the region that we’re in! But our favorite and nightly staple has always been, and will always be, the chocolate molten lava cake. It’s what dreams are made of.

We LOVE being entertained. From comedy that makes us belly laugh to a musician that makes us cry, we gladly welcome it all. And if there’s one thing that Carnival’s staff excels in, it’s making sure their guests are entertained! Some of our favorite cruising memories consist of late night karaoke, singing to our favorite tunes in the piano bar, and dancing under the stars to a live band.




The Carnival crew goes above and beyond to ensure that every guest is cared for to the best of their ability. From delivering 24 hour room service to leaving chocolates on your pillow… And how can we forget the towel animals! Their attention to detail is impeccable, and the crew’s smiles are contagious. We’ve loved getting to know our cabin stewards, dining room servers, and even the friendly on-board Cruise Director!
