1. Discuss & Share Your Cruise Experience(s)
Telling the person about all of your fun and positive cruise memories is one of the most powerful things you can do when you are trying to persuade a person to cruise. I would have probably never tried cruising if it wasn't for a neighbor that lived next door. My neighbor & her family went on a cruise and when they came back they told my family all about their experience. She told us about the food, onboard entertainment, and many different exciting things about cruising. If the person you are discussing cruising with becomes more interesting tell them you are willing to help them get starting with the booking process and you will be happy to answer any questions he or she has at any time.
2. Tell About The Food
A popular aspect of cruising is the food. Most traditional cruise ships have a variety of dining options, buffet food selections, and some type of food available at any hour of the day. When trying to persuade a non-cruiser to take a cruise, tell him or her about the food selections of a particular cruise line. Explain to him or her that most cruise ships have food options that are included in the price and other options that are not included. If you have any food photos from your cruises, consider showing him or her these photos.
3. Discuss The Variety of Cruise Options Available
There are a variety of different cruise lines, ships, homeports, and places to cruise to. Tell the person you are trying to persuade about the options from the nearest cruise ship homeport. You can also explain that prices of cruising can vary depending on the ship, itinerary, and stateroom type. There are budget friendly options available to cruisers!
4. Show Your Pictures
Let the person you are discussing cruising with see your vacation pictures. Seeing a visual of your experiences, such as pictures, may make the prospective cruiser more interested and want to consider taking a cruise.
These are a few suggestions of things you can do & say to a person that you think should try a cruise vacation. Keep in mind that everyone has different ideas when it comes to vacations and that a cruise is not for everyone. I wish you the best of luck trying to persuade someone to take a cruise!
