Enjoy a cocktail and a good book by the pool or book a balcony suite for private time to rejuvenate and relax. Either way, cruises give you the opportunity to relax and escape the stresses of everyday life. According to Heart of Healing, relaxation gives the heart rest by slowing the heart rate, reducing blood pressure, and decreasing muscle tension. This will lead to a better night’s sleep, enhanced concentration, and amped up energy.
