Most people would say cruising is all about relaxing, celebrating, doing nothing, catching up on reading or basically unplugging. Well, what you may not know is that a cruise can actually be a place to go and learn. There are several cruise lines that are starting to really add more value to their cruise offering through their enrichment programs and learning at sea options.
We recently toured the Crystal Serenity ship and were blown away at the facilities and programs they offer to their guests. Just take a look at the photo below and you’ll see how serious they take their computer program at sea. Lots of seats and all new computers with great instructors.
Crystal offers a number of enrichment programs from computer classes to keyboard classes to lectures from experts in a variety of fields. They even have progressive classes that extend throughout the cruise (as in not just one class). Think of it as a way to break out of your day to day routine and expand your mind and skills. All of this within a relaxing environment.
We think this trend of adding more out of the box activities at sea will continue. Especially in the smaller ships and longer itineraries.
