The other entertainment up side with cruise ships is that many up and coming incredibly talented performers start out touring on cruise ships. This means that catching a magic show or a singer could be seeing the next big thing before they top the charts or get their own show. There’s not much better than bragging to friends and family that you were a fan of someone famous before they hit it big.

An often overlooked opportunity aboard a cruise ship is stargazing. The amazing views of the night sky, outside of light pollution, in the middle of the open waters are unparalleled on land.

One thing is for certain about taking a cruise. There will be far more fun things to do than there will be time to do them all. Be adventurous, be spontaneous, and go try out as many as you can!
