Important: choosing the right cruise ship

In order to find the "right" ship, it is advisable to make comparisons in the run-up to a cruise. Families in particular should know before the start of the trip whether the children traveling with them will be adequately cared for.

Sport and wellness offers of the cruise ships

The equipment of the cruise ships is very different. However, some things are similar across all ships. A swimming pool is essential and every ship has at least a small fitness center. The range of sports offered by large cruise ships includes a great gym, jogging tracks, climbing walls, mini golf courses, ball courts and sports halls. Not to mention the lavish wellness offerings.
