To Cruise or not to Cruise

Cruise ships offers a different experience altogether when compared to air travel. Essentially, cruise ships take longer to reach their destination but that’s not the idea for cruising on the high seas. These so-called Floating Hotels rules the roots when it comes to offering luxury service on par with the best five-star hotels. It initially catered to the upper class of people trickled slowly down to the upper middle class – able to afford luxury travel. One might even argue that cruising isn’t for everybody and it holds some truth in there. Nevertheless, the experience it offers is very different to the quick air-travel.

Time to Cruise
A host of cruise liners are available at anyone’s disposal. Should anyone decide to venture the high seas, all they have to do is make a choice of the possible destinations they would like to take. But that forms a trifle itinerary. The experience that awaits the first time traveler to the high seas is definitely worth trying. The first thing that comes to mind is when on a cruise ship is the open breeze what one enjoys. This openness is what lacks in an airplane as one is not able to enjoy the surroundings. Moving away from port, past sundown, an unforgettable experience is watching the stars at night. Away from the city’s nasty light pollution, the night-time sky in the open seas offers a spectacular view of the constellations. Star-gazing is not the only activity one can do. A few cruise liners offer something else as well. For entertainment, they have an on-board theater where regular performances from top artists enthrall the crowd. Want to try your hands at indoor sports? Why not try your hand at bowling or pool or badminton. These in door activities might be something that you often do but doing this on a moving cruise ship is a different matter.

These floating hotels besides offering services on a lap of luxury offer services than cannot be provided on an airplane. A fine example of cruise ships’ services is the ability to shop for reputed brand on board. Some of them even offer spa and salon services as well. Due to the length of time it takes to reach from one destination to another, cruise liners also offers educational lectures to language classes and many more.

One of the most amazing benefits about cruise travel is you don’t have to hunt for hotels since you take your hotel with you wherever you go. When the ship makes a call to port, you can explore the destination and then return to the ship. Then there’s another destination for you to explore. This will happen from time to time until the cruise ship returns you to your point of origin. There’s no saying what wonderful things one may come across while on a cruise.

The vast expanse of the seas, the varying destinations and different people one may come across. The gentle sea-breeze hitting one’s face is feelings one cannot afford to miss not forget.

Enchanting Egypt

Egypt Tour, Pyramids, Middle East
Egypt by far does not require any introductions. It is perhaps one of the most mysterious places on the planet. Few things that instantly come to the mind when you say Egypt are: Pyramids, Pharaohs and of course the Mummy. Egypt is possibly the one country that we get introduced to since childhood in our schools and it gets etched in our memories forever. Pyramids, Pharaohs and Mummies are things that are always synonymous with Egypt. A beautiful country filled with the remnants of the ancient Empire and their pagan gods. 

The most notable tourist attractions are Egyptian Pyramids. Tour of the great pyramids is a different experience altogether. The location where the pyramids are located is on an expanse of arid desert.  And it’s not just the desert but the air is dry as well. The hot sun shines brightly above in the Egyptian sky. It tends to get pretty hot especially in the afternoon. Adequate sun-protection is highly recommended if you are not used to moving in hot climate and yes, drink lots of liquids. 

Khufu pyramids in the Giza Plateau is considered the largest of all the pyramids present in the plains. The striking features of the massive structures are their construction. All the pyramids have been made at similar angles extending to the top.
