A cruise vacation is normally taken aboard a boat and is one of the most popular forms of travel today.

Food is available to guests 24 hours a day and is offered from a variety of sources such as room service, elegant dining rooms, casual bistros, buffets, and more.

Ships offer sporting areas such as swimming pools, rock-climbing walls, shuffle board areas, fitness gyms, and more.

For the more pampered guest, spa and personal guest services are available for a fee. Each dining option usually includes entertainment most everyone.
