I have been on cruise for two times as of now. I feel that it is terrific to be on the cruise. Some of the people whom I encountered during the work, leisure and other places, expressed their dislike of the cruises. They are of the opinion that cruise is like a prison and they are unable to move around with the exception of the cruise ship. There are no free internet access with the exception of acquiring the satellite signal provided by the cruise ship. However, the cost is quite significant and I am of view that it is not worthwhile to acquire such services. There are so many facilities in which one can use during his/her time on the cruise ship.
The cruise ship experience suits me as it enables me to be separate from the usual routine and contact of the outside world. One con is that the cost of cruising is not cheap and could cost about $1,000 to $2,000 per person for 3 to 5 days cruise. There are promotion in which the cruise is available at $500 per person for 5 days cruise.
I believe that my cruise experience will be limited when I quit from the full-time employment for good.
