Moms are some of the hardest working people I know.
They tend to put everyone else ahead of themselves and put both their physical and emotional needs aside most of the time. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised if the same stress experienced by men in the work force isn’t experienced by the vocation of motherhood to an even greater degree. Donna Reed once listed all the jobs a mother accomplishes daily and challenged the notion that motherhood was a life of ease and tranquility and not very important. Boy, was she on the button.
With this in mind, one wonders if vacationing is as important to the health of a mom as it is to an executive in a high stress occupation to avert sleeplessness, heart disease and obesity. So as this question is pondered, why not also ponder the type of vacation that is most enjoyable for a mom?
Many choices come to mind, but the one that stands out is a cheap all inclusive cruise. No laundry, no dishes, and being waited on hand and foot as she does everyday for her family. Whether she’s going Cruise forums with the girls, or on a romantic getaway with Dad or even with the entire family, a cruise is a wonderful way for a mom to vacate. It’s also very easy to plan this type of vacation and can be very economical as well. Cruises are considered all inclusive floating resorts that entertain and delight their passengers.
Looking around the Internet one can find all types of cheap all inclusive cruises and visit a wide variety of destinations. Imagine getting to visit one or two or even three destinations without unpacking and repacking several times. On a cruise, your hotel moves with you. All your amenities are right there available at any hour you wish to use them.
For budget conscious travelers, cheap all inclusive cruises can be anything but cheap in quality and service. The variety of food choices available at any time of day, is a mother’s dream, and the chocolate, oh yes the chocolate flows quite freely.
And lets not forget about being waited upon. Oh, the joy of fresh towels at any moment without the work of laundry. Hanging out by the pool and simply raising your finger to the staff to get another lemonade or iced tea. And if you don’t care for the dinner you chose, “excuse me, waiter, may I try the lobster instead of the salmon, please?” and TA-DA! No cooking, no dishes, just pure, unadulterated pleasure.
I know it’s hard to imagine, but Mom also enjoys romance. Dancing with Dad till dawn, and not just any dancing, ballroom dancing, is quite romantic. Now maybe Dad is no Fred Astaire, but just the idea and atmosphere is sometimes all Mom needs.
Yes, cruise vacations can offer a mom a great deal of refreshment and yes cheap all inclusive cruises are a great choice for mom’s of all ages. So if you want to know the best way to help mom be an even better mom, take her on an all inclusive cruise. After all, girls just want to have fun.
