For the newbies: Take a cruise in 2015!

Never taken a cruise before? Well 2015 should be your year, and here are a few reasons you should cross this fantastic holiday experience off your travel bucket list. There are so many Australia cruises available in 2015 and no more excuses to delay! From P&O to Princess, Celebrity and Carnival, you will find the right one on Cruise Sale Finder's Bucket List Sale.

Here are our top five reasons to get on a ship and sail away.

Unpack Once

It has been said many times before, but a cruise is truly a convenient way to holiday. There are no buses or trains between cities, no rental car paperwork, no succession of hotel rooms of unknown quality. Once you are on a cruise ship, it is your home for the duration of your holiday. A home which moves so that you can wake up somewhere different every day. Easy!

Break and Reconnect

Your cellphone won't be of much use on a cruise ship in the ocean, and internet connections are not as ubiquitous as on land. Like a camping trip but with many more mod cons, a cruise allows you to get away from it all. Feel the wind in your hair, gaze over the vast ocean and don't worry about getting a call from that person you are avoiding about that issue you would rather forget. There's nothing like lying on a tropical beach or in a deckchair by the pool to help you relax, reset and enjoy time with your travelling companions.

Dishes Done

Meals cooked for you, dishes whisked away by smiling waiters, your bed made every day and the kids entertained- this is what a holiday should be all about! Everything is done for you on a cruise ship, so there's nothing left but to get a cocktail and wait for dinnertime. Don't lift a finger until you disembark.

Be Entertained

Onboard entertainment is quality and comprehensive. Most lines show Broadway-style productions each evening in the main theatre, with additional live music, movies and more at the various bars and venues. During the day, there is plenty to choose from. Exercise your body in the gym, your mind at quizzes and lectures, or your tastebuds with a cooking class or wine tasting. Join in a dance class, catch an art auction or participate in a sports tournament. Different cruise ships have different facilities, but you won't be bored on any of them.

The Price is Right

Here's a big reason to tick a cruise holiday off your bucket list - it won't cost the earth. On Cruise Sale Finder you will find plenty of cruises from the major lines costing less than $100 per person, per night, twin share. With food, transport, accommodation and entertainment included, that's quite the bargain! The industry is growing in Australia, with regular itineraries from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Fremantle - so you are ever more likely to find a perfect cruise adventure departing from a port near you in 2015, cutting costs even further.

Convinced? Take a look at the many fantastic cruises by P&O Australia, Royal Caribbean, Princess, Carnival, Holland America and other lines in 2015! And don't forget to take advantage of our Bucket List Sale on through January 9 2015. 

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
