6 Reasons Why You Should Book A Cruise This October #ChooseCruise Plus $25 Gift Card Giveaway

Have you ever dreamed of going on a cruise?  I am a cruise lover! My family has taken about a dozen or so throughout the years and they always provide a million beautiful memories. Last month, I took 40 women on board Carnival Cruise for a little getaway and, once again, the sea did not disappoint. There are so many reasons why you should book a cruise. But don’t just take my word for it.

This October,  be sure to follow the cruise industry online to find out about amazing destinations and experiences cruising has to offer. 

Did you know you could dive with Jacques Cousteau’s grandson? There are so many hidden gems you can discover on a cruise vacation! If you are looking for reasons why you should book a cruise – we have you covered! 

Should You Book A Cruise?

October is a great time to book a cruise for a holiday getaway or a 2019 vacation adventure.  Throughout October, the cruise industry will share a variety of favorite destinations and tips for travelers all around the world. I had to take part in it all! Like I’ve said, I consider myself a cruiser and with good reason. It’s one of the easiest ways to travel. When I go away, that’s the number one thing I look for – simplicity! 

6 Reasons Why You Should Book A Cruise

Leave the planning up to the experts: I love to jump on board while wearing my santo wrap and without a care in the world. Every morning, I grab my itinerary and float around the boat as my schedule sees fit. If I make it to Bingo, then I make it to Bingo. If I want to squeeze in a spa appointment before dinner, I call down and make one. Life on the water is simple and fabulous. There’s no racing around a city trying to hit some crazy deadline. It’s just fun in the sun and I love every second of it.

Ample time off the boat: Day excursions once you port can really add to your cruising experience! I love to explore using the suggested excursion list that the cruise provides. Again, the boat tells me where to be, when to be there, and then they take care of the rest. All I need to worry about is my SPF and my camera. THANK YOU!

There’s always a dance party: While I was on the Carnival Cruise with my girlfriends, we danced every single night! So many nightclubs to choose from. And if one started to slow down, we just walked until we found another one that worked! It was amazing and offered up a ton of laughs.


Once in a lifetime experiences: I am from NYC. Do you think I would be able to kiss a stingray and have it swim up my back if I jumped in the East River? I don’t think so! Taking a cruise offers experiences like THIS! These cannot be beat. I always look for something extraordinary to do when I go away. What’s going to be the annual “WOW” that I will remember for the rest of my life? There are so many to choose from while cruising! 

Plenty of time to shop: Land and sea – you aren’t always stuck on a boat. I know that’s a big misconception. But while you cruise, you will have plenty of time to walk around and shop, eat, sightsee, and more. Your vacation is completely customizable. Don’t feel like getting off the boat? Then don’t! Live your best life, girl! Noone can tell you how to cruise. 

Bonding moments with people you love: I typically vacation with my family, but like I said, this last time I went away with friends on Carnival Cruise. We had a blast. There are quiet times. There are huge dance parties. There are scrumptious meals. There are views like these! It all is included – and more.
