If you have never heard the term ‘a cruise to nowhere’, you would be forgiven for thinking it is some mystery cruise that never ends. Albeit the idea could entice especially those intrepid travellers who want to experience as much of what life has to offer, especially those one-of-a-kind travels, such a cruise does not involve any puzzle solving, not even going to nowhere and never returning.
The term “cruise to nowhere” actually refers to a short cruise when the ship departs and returns to the same port. This type of cruise is designed for first time cruisers who wish to sample life onboard a luxury cruise liner before committing to a longer cruise, and when you consider that a cruise holiday is unlike any other, it is important to try it out for a short 2-3 day trip.
You can find short cruises from Sydney 2020 online from established cruise operators, who have a wide range of cruises to nowhere, as well as longer cruises to many exotic locations. A three-day cruise that departs from and returns to Sydney is a very popular choice for new cruisers, as this gives you a taste of life onboard a state-of-the-art luxury cruise liner, which is similar to a floating city.
Long List Of Activities
The best thing about cruise holidays is that you have almost unlimited activities at your disposal, yet you are free to choose exactly what you do. Whether you are into water sports or weightlifting, cooking classes or quizzes, there is literally something for everyone onboard a luxury cruise liner. It doesn’t take long to become familiar with the ship’s layout, as there are maps everywhere, and the staff are always friendly and helpful, doing what they can to make your holiday a memorable experience.

Advice For First Time Cruisers
Rather than jumping in at the deep end and booking a 14-day cruise of the Pacific islands, why not start with a 3-day cruise around Sydney? This will give you a short introduction to cruising, which really is an acquired taste. A Google search will bring up a list of established cruise operators and you can choose a short cruise that fits in with your schedule, and once booked, you can prepare for what is likely to be the start of a long love affair with cruise holidays. There are articles you can find online detailing a first timer’s guide to cruise holidays.
What To Pack For Your First Cruise
If you are taking a short 3-4 day cruise, you won’t need too much in the way of clothing, just make sure you have some reading material for those quiet moments, and if you like listening to music, take a long MP3 playlist. If you are into exercise, take a pair of sports shoes, as there will be aerobics on the sun deck, plus lots of sports to engage in if you are an active person.

Cruise holidays offer the chance to socialise or get involved in any of the many onboard activities, yet you can also enjoy some peace and quiet with as much alone time as you wish. Spend some time checking out available cruises before making your selection, as the list is varied, with short cruises leaving Sydney and Brisbane on a regular basis, and hopefully, you will have the time of your life onboard a luxury cruise liner.
