So, let’s get started!
1. Soak up and enjoy the backyard bash
The backyard of the cruise is where you can relax on a comfortable deck chair and play a game of trivia over real grass -while cruising around the island. You can sunbathe, have drinks, and simply enjoy the sightseeing while making it a complete backyard bash. Most of the fun-activities offered on cruises are made to happen in the backyard only so, this is the place where you will see yourself surrounded by many of your fellow passengers. This is the best place where you can interact with other passengers and play games while soaking up the pristine nature views.
2. Relax on a hammock
There’s nothing more enjoyable than lying on a hammock and catching the fresh sea breeze. If you are looking for some tranquility on the cruise, this can work for you. Most of the hammocks are placed in the quiet zones of the deck and hence, ensure a peaceful time one can have with the pristine nature.
3. Experience the incredible stargazing
If you are on a cruise and you haven’t experienced stargazing, are you really on the cruise? A cruise in the middle of the ocean is one of the best vantage points for stargazing and you must experience it at least once in your cruise vacation. Spot a place which is close to the front of the ship and have less lightening as compared to the other parts of the cruise. The closer you are to the front, the better it would be as you are less likely to experience smoke and disturbance coming out of the stacks which may obstruct your view. You can always start with the observation decks. If the winds are low paced, your cruise may also allow you to enter into their helipad area for a better view. So, you can always ask them about this and they are more likely to say a yes. Afterall, you have paid them.
4. Enjoy the food and drinks
On a six-eight days cruising, you will find yourself engaged more on food and drinks than any other thing. The variety of delicious meals served on the cruise will make you try each and every dish to satisfy your hunger cramps. And would you mind to have free drinks served on your cruise?
