Find out why a cruise is a great option for everyone.


Embarking on a cruise opens the door to a world of possibilities.  With incredible destinations to visit and a huge range of activities available, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.    With so many cruise lines to consider at Mary Rossi Travel, we believe a cruise holiday is everyone will love.  Take a look for yourself!


A cruise holiday is a great option for families looking to see the world and keep everyone happy and entertained at the same time.  Many popular cruise lines have kids’ clubs catering to the needs of all age groups – from babies through to teenagers.

One of the most popular cruise lines for families is Royal Caribbean.  Recognised globally for its family-friendly atmosphere and the incredible range of entertainment options on board, there’s waterslides, wave simulators, laser tag, ziplines, dodgem cars, trapeze schools, escape rooms and more!

There are also quieter pursuits for parents such as relaxing by the pool, enjoying a massage or perhaps even taking a language class.  Adults can enjoy their time out knowing that the kids are being well looked after and enjoying having fun with new friends.  You may even struggle to get them to leave kids’ club!

Dining options are extensive for families, and kids clubs are even offered in the evening on some cruises, allowing adults to dine alone.

The kids will never want to leave the fun of a family-friendly cruise with Royal Caribbean behind!

Young adults

There are plenty of options and activities onboard ocean cruises for fun loving young adults.  In addition to all the adrenaline-packed activities, young adults can also enjoy pool parties, fabulous bars and nightlife, casinos, movie nights, and more.

River cruising is now also accessible to this age group.  Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collections recently launched a range of European River Cruises tailored towards young adults called U by Uniworld.  These river cruises feature activities such as silent discos, rooftop camping, mixology and yoga classes.  Contemporary accommodation, great food and all the mod cons expected by young adults are also a feature onboard.

Young adults not constrained by a tight budget should also consider small ship expedition cruising.  Visiting off-the-beaten track destinations such as Antarctica, Alaska and the Arctic, expedition cruises are great for the more adventurous.  There’s stunning scenery at close range and a host of active excursions available.  Kayak past icebergs, zip off the boat on a zodiac in search of wildlife and photographic opportunities, or perhaps even take a polar plunge into the chilly waters!  These are just a few of the opportunities for excitement and enrichment.

Adults Empty Nesters

There are so many reasons why a cruise holiday is a great choice for empty nesters.  With regained freedom, it’s time to decide where and when to travel. There’s no school holidays to consider or having to choose destinations to suit the kids.   This is the time to set sail and enjoy new-found independence while travelling to the world’s most stunning destinations.  Ocean, river and expedition cruises are all fabulous options.

Cruise lines craft incredible itineraries. This means all the hard work is done, and passengers can enjoy fabulous locations without having to worry about planning or booking.   The only things to think about are your day’s activities,  your next shore excursion or perhaps which cocktail to order next!

Better yet, there are often exquisite spa facilities onboard.  Guests can enjoy the finest treatments to make their cruise experience even more special.

Cruising is perfect for retirees and makes travelling easy and stress free.   Just embark, get settled into your stateroom and cruise to your desired destination.  Unpack once and enjoy the peace of mind of having everything close by and arranged for you.  There’s even a doctor onboard to take care of any medical issues you may experience during the voyage.

On a small luxury cruise line, the passenger to staff ratio is low – sometimes as low as 1:1.  Enjoy a highly personalised service and assistance booking activities or with any other query or need. There’s often the chance to pay a little extra for your own personal butler (or set sail with Silversea and this is included for all passengers).
