Oh, my ocean. How I am longing to be with you! I miss you every single day. Your tender voice, when your white top waves tremble in fountains of spray, and your gentle touch, when your soft breath breezes through my hair.
I love loosing my sight in the eternal blue of your mystical depths while I taste the salt of your presence on my lips. How could being close to you ever be enough, when I can be closest?
This might sound a little kitschy, but I mean every word of it!
Being a cruise enthusiast, I could cruise every day, all year-long. Too bad, that work and life do interfere with this wish of adventure on a regular base. And since my last name is not Gates, Trump, Buffet or Lee Wachtstetter, it looks like that I will have to wait for my dream to come true open end.
But I am not the only one. Cruise lines have gotten more and more considerate of the fact, that these days, people have to work more for their money, while having less free-time to spend it. Or they are just tired of having only one vacation per year. Whatever the reason is, short breaks are booming more than ever. The will to travel and to take a little time out remains unbroken.
And the cruise lines react. While it has been common in the US market for many years, short cruises begin to become more and more popular in Europe. And I love it! Let me outline just a few advantages in stock for you:
- They provide the opportunity to take some time off on a regular base, if only for a few nights, while not being stuck to just a single destination.
- You get a taste of each different product available on the market that will help you to identify, which one suits your needs the best.
- You are sovereign to rumours and hearsay from others and independent from cruise review publishing.
- And the best part: They are affordable and come at a much better price value than to that of a comparable luxury weekend in a major European hot spot, full board included!
Take a look at these luxury short cruises highlights in 2015 in Europe. I am sure, you have not been aware of at least a few of them. No matter, what your personal preference is like: Windjammer, yacht-style or ocean liner. It is all on offer!
See for yourself, why this year is a fantastic time again to take a well-deserved break. Or start doing so! Brought to you only here on HideousJourneys.com.
