Default What is The #1 Reason Why You Book a Cruise?

Some people book a cruise simply because the price is a good deal and they're mostly driven by cost. Others book because they really want to try a particular ship. Some book a cruise because of the food. Yet many will book because the itinerary affords them an opportunity to see new ports. And others will book because of the cruise line and their past guest benefits.

So what is the #1 reason why you book a cruise?

I have a hard time picking one main reason.

There are several reasons that I love to cruise. If I must pick one, It's because I love the sea. We live on the East Coast of Florida and I often drive along A1A just to see the Atlantic Ocean.
I find it very relaxing to be on a ship and I sleep very well and wake up refreshed and feeling great.

One reason huh, even though I have about 20 of them. I guess the #1 reason for me to cruise is to sit on the balcony or deck watching the oceans go by while reading a good book. No phones to ring and no emails to answer (well almost). Food would never get me onto a ship but a cheaper price with a great itinerary of new ports would.
