A Cruise for Better Health - Part 1

There are hundreds of reasons to take a cruise.  It is no longer just to get from point A to B or to head from one of the popular cruise destinations so you don't feel too out of date at your next bridge party or pub session.

Over the next few weeks, Prow's Edge will explore these very many reasons that tempt people to take a cruise.  It might just give you the impetus to follow suit.

We begin with the very popular motive to cruise - to regain and aid a better status of health.

The worst thing about ill health, even at the final stages of recovery, is the exhaustion one experiences.  This is a typical complaint for those recovering from cancer – that the burden is not just recovering from the cancer, but from the medications used to aid you.  And exhaustion is one of the common complaints.

There are obvious reasons why a cruise would be a great idea - and one of those is the fact that you don't have to spend any time in the kitchen and there are no dishes to wash, and best of all, for many ill people, there is no need to think of what to eat, how to get it and find the energy to do so.

The advantage of taking a cruise as apposed to booking a hotel in some sunny resort somewhere, is that the choices and availablity of different meals on a cruise ship can never be matched on land. So, if you are recovering from something major, and just don't feel like eating at 10am, there are plenty of other options throughout the day - even cabin service if you're having a "rum" day!

Many cruise lines also offer special programs for people who have to follow special diets

We here at Prow's Edge Cruise Magazine often hear about another reason that cruises are so helpful for those recovering from mega illnesses – the people around them who have stood by them so valiantly, get a chance to avoid those chores for a while (especially cooking) and actually get a break themselves.

Taking a cruise allows them to actually relax for the first time and to refuel a little. The advantage of a cruise really suits everyone in this situation!
