Top 10 Reasons to Cruise

ReasonstoCruise Travelers who haven't yet tried a cruise tell us that popular cruising myths like "I'll get seasick" and "I'll feel claustrophobic on a ship" are among the reasons they've not yet crossed the gangway.

At the same time, compelling lures, like commercials you see on TV of families sliding down onboard waterslides or of couples gazing out to sea from their private balcony are tempting. Even more tantalizing: friends who have cruised and who come home from vacation just raving.

If you're among those who's considering a first cruise -- but who hasn't yet taken the leap -- Cruise Critic editors and members highlight what we love most in our Top 10 Reasons to Cruise slideshow.
