    <p>With 75% of millennials hankering after an overseas holiday and 69% saying that they crave adventure*, the cruising market is the perfect place for young adults to broaden their holiday horizons and break away from the family holidays that so many are accustomed to. The assumption that cruising is predominantly for older generations may ring true but that shouldn&rsquo;t mean that millennials should be put off <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/find-your-cruise" target="_blank">booking a cruise</a>. In fact, there are plenty of reasons why young adults should take to the seas and enjoy a cruising experience of their own.</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h2>Cost-effective cruising</h2>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>Generally cheaper than air or land-based travel, cruising is one of the most cost-effective ways of travelling out there. Not only does your holiday begin the moment you step aboard but a large number of cruise lines also offer <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/types-of-cruise/all-inclusive-cruises" target="_blank">all-inclusive cruises</a>. Plus, you&rsquo;d be hard pushed to find a hotel that has an abundance of bars and pubs, restaurants, entertainment venues and amenities, a gym and a spa right on your doorstep, so to speak. Not only does a cruise offer you most, if not all, of these amenities but with a wealth of destinations available on every single itinerary, you&rsquo;ll be able to see many more places in the world than booking an air/land holiday could offer.</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h2>Bucket loads of destinations</h2>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>With itineraries ranging from a few nights to months at sea, there are a whole variety of cruise options available. For millennials who tend to be drawn to backpacking style holidays, being able to visit a multitude of destinations in quick succession is an absolute must - and what better way to do that than on a cruise? The world is your oyster and cruising gives you the means to be able to see all the gems that it has on offer - whether you seek the Caribbean sun, a Vietnamese adventure, an expedition into the heart of Borneo or simply to relax on a beach in Seychelles, cruising can provide you with it all.</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h2>No-fuss travel</h2>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>When going on a land or air-based holiday, there is so much that you need to consider. Booking a cruise takes the fuss out of your travel - there is no waiting around in airports for your connecting flight, you only pack and unpack once, you know when and where your next meal is coming from, and you know that no matter where you are in the world - from the Australian outback to Nordic delights - you&rsquo;ll always have a warm and inviting bed to go back to at the end of the night. Cruising is paving the way for travelling with ease and for millennials, this laid-back style of holidaying is perfect.</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h2>Everything is at your fingertips</h2>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>For a generation whose every whim is at their fingertips, it is so important that the immediacy of their travel is top-notch. Technological advances in recent years have put pressure on service levels and the speed at which a promise is delivered. With cruising, you can rest assured that everything you want is at your fingertips and if it&rsquo;s not, all you have to do is ask. Many cruise lines pride themselves on exceptional on board amenities and service levels - with on board Wi-Fi, dining and drinking options available all day every day, swimming pools, waiters and butlers and a flawless level of service, a cruise experience has it all. Little can compare to the amenities on board a cruise ship - and for millennials, this active approach to getting what you want can only be beneficial.</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h2>Sociable sailing</h2>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>Socialising comes as second nature to millennials and there are few experiences more sociable than cruising. For one, you&rsquo;re in an environment where those on board have common interests - whether you plan to trek through the Amazon rainforest or drink cocktails under the sun, you&rsquo;ll always find someone to chat to. As you are essentially living in a floating hotel with your companions, you&rsquo;ll undoubtedly meet people that whom you can connect. It may come as a surprise to many that lifelong friendships can be made and sustained through cruising and with many cruise ships having plenty of social and entertainment areas, there will always be someone to converse with or something to do together.</p>\r\n
