Vacations for the wealthy may sometimes go beyond your usual road trip to the beach. If you have the money for it and the great interest in seeing new parts of the world while traveling in luxurious style, your best bet is going on a cruise.
Cruise ships have been a big part of the Western culture for many decades now, which has also been adapted by many cultures all over the world.
Although a cruise package may seem pricey, the sights and experience will most definitely make up for the cost.
Cruise ships are known to be gigantic and classy. One ship can cater to hundreds of passengers and crew while also taking care of their entertainment, food and comfort as they sail away at sea for days.
Tasty drinks, international dishes, world class entertainment and all kinds of recreation are only a few of the things you can do aboard a cruise ship, and that is not yet counting the beautiful scenery and places you will get to visit.
There are hundreds of cruise ships sailing away around the world. Among these ranks the largest one which had just recently set sail.
MS Harmony of the Seas
Surpassing the formerly known largest cruise ships in the world and her sisters Allure of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas, the great MS Harmony of the Seas has first set sail on May 15, 2016 and was cheered and applauded as it bid bon voyage by no less than 70,000 people.
Owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises, and because of the former success of its two great sisters, MS Harmony of the Seas was ordered in December 2012.
After 32 months of intricately planning and building this gargantuan structure for the vast ocean, the large cruise ship was finally delivered on June 19, 2015.
From when it first set sail on May 2016, the historic first destination is Southampton, England. When the mighty ship crosses the Atlantic in October, she will be heading to her homeport in Barcelona.
Accommodations and Amenities
MS Harmony of the Seas can accommodate at staggering 5,479 guests in 2,747 staterooms. The rooms range from small interiors to suites. Some of the rooms have its own entertainment area that houses floor-to-ceiling television screens.
Like its sisters, the large cruise ship is divided into seven neighborhoods that houses amenities such as spa, swimming pools, water play areas, restaurants, an ice rink, a casino, extreme sports amenities for rock climbing and such, a gold course, a zip line, a theatre, an art gallery, a movie house and many other forms of entertainment you can possibly think of.
It’s like a whole new island in its own.
What Do I think ?
It’s true that you will need to save a fortune before you can enjoy the luxurious experience of going on a cruise, but the accommodation, the beautiful places you can go to and the overall experience is all totally worth it.
Maybe it’s time to save up and give yourself a treat for all your hard work.
