Cruise VS Holiday Resort
If you’ve been abroad on a fabulous holiday abroad at a great resort or on a cruise sailing across the Mediterranean, you’ll know the absolute joy and peace time away can bring. Choosing a holiday however, can actually be stressful! Booking a holiday is now something of a difficulty given the sheer choice available now so we’ve divided it down between the two most popular holiday choices, a cruise or a holiday resort.
Holiday resorts have a distinct advantage in that they give you the choice from self-catering to all-inclusive and everything is in one place. If you’re looking to stay in one place and explore one region then a holiday resort holiday can be easier. Travelling with small children is also a consideration as after a flight the last thing most want to do is then travel even further than their destination. Are you interested in a geographic range of choices? Then a cruise is likely the best option for you as it’s practically a floating holiday resort given the sheer size of the ship and what it has to offer. Travelling across different areas of the world full board and with many activities on board you get to have your entire holiday and everything you could want right at your fingertips.
The sheer design of holiday resorts today mean that hotels and apartments are far more attractive than they used to be. Being able to have the choice of a suite versus a room on a resort can mean the difference as to whether you have a balcony or not with your room. While wrought iron railings along balconies are a feature in old hotels and country manors, most holiday resorts have upgraded themselves to glass balconies and balustrades. Unparalleled when it comes to style and chicness, glass balconies offer an uninterrupted view. Companies like capitalinteriors.co.uk offer anti-scratch glass or decorative glass designs and planners who use these on hotel or cruise ship balconies can quite clearly see the market that they are designing for.
When sailing on a cruise ships, the outdoor cabins and suites generally have balconies with sheer glass to allow for an excellent view and is strong enough to resist impact and stresses and is highly aesthetic. A lot of older hotels and resorts are complimented by the standard wrought iron railing balconies but people tend to prefer the cleaner, more modern look of glass and the structural glass offers a frame less look.
When choosing a holiday, people are attracted by the ‘packaging’ in the same way Marks and Spencer package differently to other supermarkets to be more aesthetically pleasing. Most holiday makers are looking for hotels or cruise ships that look attractive. No one wants to pay for a holiday with no decent windows or painted bright pink with purple spots. Companies online supply toughened glass and this is used and designed on things like frame less balconies to withstand the weather and the play of toddlers.
