A boat cruise around the atolls in the lap of luxury is the most ecstatic
experience that you may ever have. On board there is everything you need. It
really feels like paradise as you sail in the middle of the ocean with
occasional stops at the resorts, visits to a local fishing village or when
you undertake all those adventure sports like snorkelling, diving,
windsurfing et al.
Selecting an Ideal Vessel
Choosing the right boat is imperative because it is going to be your
cossetted shelter for the next few days. From large cruise liners
accomodating 30- 50 people to the smaller ones with room for 4-8 persons,
you have a wide range of choices. Your entertainment essentially depends on
your selection of the vessel.
There are small vessels which offer private charters only. They accomodate
4- 8 persons and are ideal for family or group of friends. Here you are free
to determine your own route. The large cruise liners operate like resorts.
There are chances that you may be transferred to such a vessel by a sea
plane when the cruise is already underway. On board facilities depend
largely on the size and class of the vessel. You can ceck out the range and
quality of entertainment and options for sports before undertaking a cruise.
The Fascinating Life Unleashed On Board
Your life on board is full of fun and bonhomie. You can do what you like,
for this is what a perfect life amounts to- diving, snorkelling, visits to
local villages and walks on desert islands, you will never know when time
flew by you. Boredom and monotony is left in oblivion. If you are a scuba
diver you will constantly be in water. You can savour your favourite fiction
stories while lying lazily on the bridge. You will be thrilled to enjoy the
sun going down the horizon, perhaps with a long cool drink. The evenings are
fun-packed with opportunities of getting off at a resort close by and enjoy
a drink or two at the bar, or get a break from the relaxation of the day by
taking part in the disco. It could also be a fire-lit barbecue under the
stars ,on the beach of an uninhabited island. You may find yourself enjoying
local music at a fishing village.
The day is over with a such unknown excitement. You rest in the lap of
sleep only to wake up with new vistas.
Pack these before the Cruise
If you are on a diving cruise dont forget to pack your diving gear.
Otherwise T-shirts, shorts, wraparound skirts and swimming suits are
sufficient. Always avoid rigid suitcases, for they are difficult to stow on
board. You can carry your photography equipment if you want to freeze all
those fascinating moments.
Before undertaking a cruise you should take a look at the technical aspects
of the vessels. For instance, you can check out the engine capacity of the
vessel which would let you know how much time the vessel will take to travel
You must have a safety check up such as the availability of proper
navigational equipment on boards.
