A Cruise for Better Health - Part 2

(continuing our look at why a cruise may seem like a good idea to gain or recover better health)

In our last blog entry on this topic at A Cruise for Better Health – Part 1, we concentrated on how useful the different and copious offerings of food on a cruise can be to help all sort of different people recovering from all sorts of different illnesses. 

Different foods on offer on cruises are not the only advantage of a cruise for those of less than 100% health.

In fact, one of the greatest advantages of a cruise as a holiday option for those not in perfect health is the way in which any cruise offers a variety of destinations and sights and scenes without having to change hotels and travel with cars and trains or even flights from one stop to the next.

Nothing could be easier than being on a cruise to see those fabulous places you’ve always wanted to see, even if you’re not feeling 100% well. 

Most cruise lines offer a wide selection of options for port tours, from short bus rides around the destinations to get a general feeling of it all, to a variety of tours tailored for people who do not necessarily have the energy to climb mountains or go water skiing.

The main advantage of a cruise if your health is not one hundred percent, is that most of the things you might like to see at each port of call are usually close at hand or only a short bus ride away.

And if you don't have the energy for that, there's always the very pleasant option of sitting on deck and staring out a a beautiful view that must beat the view from hospital beds or even your own back garden.

A lady we spoke to very recently told us she took a Mediterranean cruise and didn't leave the ship once."I didn't have the energy," she explained, "but there I could sit on deck and see all these wonderful sites, from old volcanoes to Greek seaside towns. I had a wonderful time that is just as filled with fond memories as for those people who were able to go rock climbing! I think I had the better deal.”
