    <p>Are you new to cruise? Discover a whole new kind of holiday and relax in luxury on board your floating hotel while the world comes to you. If that hasn&rsquo;t sold it, here are 8 reasons you should book a cruise in 2020:</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h2>Great value for money</h2>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>Cruises offer great value for money. A basic cruise fare usually includes flights (where applicable), transfers and on board accommodation, main meals and snacks, entertainment, on board lectures and seminars, social events and full use of the ship&rsquo;s facilities, including swimming pools and fitness centre.</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h2>Fantastic for solo travellers</h2>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>There&rsquo;s nothing quite like travelling solo and what better way to do so than on a cruise? Cruising is an ideal getaway for <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/types-of-cruise/solo-travellers" target="_blank">solo travellers</a>, offering a safe and secure environment in which to meet new people, make new friends and visit a new destination almost every day.</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h2>There&rsquo;s a cruise ship for everyone</h2>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>Cruise ships come in all different shapes and sizes. From intimate expedition ships that carry only 50 passengers to megaships with go kart tracks and everything in between, there really is a cruise ship for everyone. You can sail the ocean on a traditional tall ship or cruise the waterways of each continent on a <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/types-of-cruise/river-cruises" target="_blank">river cruise</a>, embark on an intimate and personal journey on a <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/types-of-cruise/small-ship-cruising" target="_blank">small ship cruise</a> or get away from it all on an <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/types-of-cruise/adults-only-cruises" target="_blank">adults only cruise</a>. The possibilities are endless!</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h2>Dine on exquisite cuisine</h2>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>Cruising is so much more than just sailing the seas and rivers of the world, there are innumerable culinary opportunities and dining experiences available aboard every single ship. In recent years, there&rsquo;s been a rise in gastronomy interest and the world of cruising frequently proves &ndash; with innovation and creation &ndash; that it will not be left behind where tastes buds are concerned.</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h2>Visit extraordinary destinations</h2>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>With cruise lines such as <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/cruise-lines/princess-cruises" target="_blank">Princess Cruises</a> travelling to over 380 cruise destinations, you have the opportunity to wake up in a new place every single morning. What&rsquo;s more, you only have to unpack your suitcase once.</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h2>Make lifelong friends</h2>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>Cruising is an exceptionally sociable experience, which provides a wonderful opportunity to meet likeminded people and make new friends.</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h2>Relax like never before</h2>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>Cruising isn&rsquo;t just for exploration and adventure, it&rsquo;s for relaxation too. Many <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/cruise-lines" target="_blank">cruise lines</a> have luxury spa and wellbeing facilities on board, meaning you can relax like never before.</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h2>Earn rewards</h2>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>There are many rewards waiting to be earned, like <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/save-with-cruise-miles" target="_blank">Cruise Miles</a>. Brought to you by ROL Cruise, Cruise Miles is a free-to-join official rewards programme. Every time you book with us, you&rsquo;ll be credited with one Cruise Mile for every pound spent. What are you waiting for?</p>\r\n
