A cruise to nowhere may seem a little crazy, but it’s actually a great opportunity to get away for a quick time and to really experience cruising and all that cruise ships offer. It’s also a chance for first time cruisers to find out what cruising is all about, go to a show and experience the myriad of dining options. And for the more experienced cruisers, a cruise to nowhere is a great opportunity to get a taste of a new ship, or a new cruise brand. Lastly, it gives people with hectic schedules a chance to unplug and make their couple of days really count. It’s a stress free vacation: you’re meals are made for you, you have a fun schedule of activities to choose from and someone is even there to make your bed.   


Things to Do on a Cruise to Nowhere


You may not be getting off the ship, but trust us when we tell you that you can have just as much fun onboard your ship. You can go from breakfast to a trivia game to the pool deck or mini golf course, and follow that up with a spa visit – and before you know it, it’s time for dinner.

  • Sleep in and enjoy breakfast in bed. On a cruise ship, most room service is complimentary, and sometimes available 24 hours a day - so you'll always have a plethora of delicious options to choose from.
  • Work it out. You could head to the ship’s gym for a run on the treadmill, or you could feel that sea breeze if you run on the outdoor track. Some ships even feature outdoor basketball courts, golf simulators, putting greens and more.

  • A cruise to nowhere is short so make sure to try lots of the food onboard – have fun and try a bit of everything. You'll find several specialty restaurants, each offering a unique dining experience. And remember, on a cruise, dessert is always included!
  • When on board, make sure to spend some time on you. This is your vacation after all, so be sure to indulge in something like a spa service, sauna cleanse, a gift from the gift shop or a tropical drink (or two).
