It’s a general opinion that cruising is mainly tailored for elderly people or families. However, this trend is definitely changing with the emerging number of cruise lines offering all kinds of experience for adventurous travel all across the globe. With each coming year, groups of young people sail away for one of the most exciting trips of their life.
You and your girlfriends may have been wondering how to spend your holidays together. Skip the boring hotel resorts and go beyond sunbathing on the same beach every day. World’s cruise lines offer you a life-changing adventure sailing in the untouched nature of the world. Enjoy snorkeling, hiking on deserted islands and spotting rare animals on a cruise to Ambon & The Spice Islands, or experience the mysticism of Antarctica.

1. Suitable for Everyone
Growing up with our best friends means that we are all going to follow different paths in our lives, but we will still be close to each other. In other words, while some of your friends may be married with children, others may still be single and looking for some fun. On the other hand, some of them may be focused on their careers, and they just need some “me time”.
Whether your girlfriends’ situation is, cruising is the best way to make everyone pleased with the holiday. You will be spending your time onboard, enjoying different activities together or on your own, and create new memories to celebrate your friendship.
2. Indulge Without Guilt
Booking a cruise may not be enough to reward ourselves for having spent so many hours in the office. You and your best friends can finally have the best time of your lives while onboard, just by booking a dreamy head-to-toe treatment at the spa.
Yes, this is going to be over-priced, so don’t expect the average price list of your local salon. However, there is no best time to indulge with your girlfriends without guilt. And if you are still overthinking it, your friends will surely be happy to convince you that you should definitely spoil yourself!
3. There are Plenty of Things to Do
Booking your holidays with your friends can be a nightmare. Each of us has a different idea of the perfect vacation. While some may seek some “me time” while sunbathing and napping, others may want to risk their life while trying some new extreme sports.
Cruising is the only way to please everyone. While your active friend can wake up at 6 o’clock and take her fitness class, your intellectual member of the group may join a spiritual sanctuary. You will all catch up on your days over lunch.

4. The Best Way to Pack Your Bag
When it comes to packing our bags, this may be one of the worst things about traveling. What if you forget your slippers? Or if you run out of shampoo? If you travel with your girlfriends, you won’t need to worry anymore.
You can all share your bags, to ensure that you always have everything you may need while on board. Finally, you can pack your bags and bring everything you want without worrying too much about forgetting your favorite dress.
5. No Driving, No Curfew
Once you arrive in port and park your car, you can finally enjoy your time on your cruise ships. This means that, for a few days, you and your friends will finally be able to stay up until late to watch the sunrise.
Ready to dance until you cannot feel your feet anymore, and maybe even have a few drinks? No waking up early in the morning for a while, no curfew, no stress: isn’t this the best holiday scenario, ever?
6. No Social Media
Every day, we are so busy that often emails, social media and texts are the only way to get in touch with our girlfriends. However, while onboard, you can finally forget about the internet and your smartphone, and reconnect with your friends face to face.
This is the best opportunity to spend quality time together, share your secrets, and create new memories. You may learn something new about your friends or even yourself, unwind, forget about all your problems and responsibilities for a while, and recharge. At the end of your vacation, you will feel like a completely different person.
7. Your Partners in Crime
Have you always wanted to learn how to dance, but you are too embarrassed to try? Or maybe you just want to throw your inhibitions to the wind and sea for a few nights without feeling guilty? Finally, you can spend your time with your best partners in crime, who will be more than happy to encourage and support you. Break out of your shell and have fun with your girls!
Cruise ships are usually unique environments, where we feel free because we are so far from the mainland and what’s familiar. With your friends by your side, you may finally learn how to be less shy and try new things. No one is going to judge you!
