Taking a cruise holiday is a relaxing and stress-free way to explore the world’s most wonderful sights, such as the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Alaska, the Far East, Australia or even Antarctica. Cruising is a great option if you are unable to fly, as many of our cruises depart and return to one of the UK ports. One of the greatest benefits of a cruise is that you only have to unpack once, then sit back and relax while you are transported in luxury and style from one fascinating destination to another. A cruise holiday allows you to make each day your own, whether you choose to explore shore-side culture or spoil yourself with the variety of leisurely activities onboard.
Along the way you can enjoy heavenly days at sea, gourmet dining and a range of stimulating activities on board. Savour flavours of the local cuisines at each destination or enjoy wine tasting and cooking demonstrations on board. Be captivated by a theatrical show or learn a new style of dance. Experience a historical lecture about the countries you will be visiting on your journey. Indulge in a massage and facial at the spa or take part in more active pursuits like jogging, swimming or an exercise class at the fitness centre. Our friendly, knowledgeable consultants have travelled with most of the major cruise lines and will give you honest and unbiased advice to ensure that you can select the perfect ship and itinerary for you. We will also make sure you receive the best onboard service and special offers available.
Our Cruise Holiday Recommendations
Whatever your tastes, we can recommend the cruise for you; here are just a few of our suggestions.
For luxury cruising at its best, consider the all-suite, all-inclusive Regent Voyager cruise which takes in the Italian coastline. For a romantic break or honeymoon embark on an island hop around the Caribbean aboard the stunning sail boats of Star Clipper. Or if it's a family holiday that you are planning, a good option could be an Oasis of The Seas cruise with Royal Caribbean, designed to be action-packed and fun for everyone whilst ensuring quality time spent together. For adventurers, expedition cruising is increasingly popular; Orion Expedition Cruises offer inspirational itineraries encompassing destinations such as New Zealand, the Sub Antarctic Islands and Papua New Guinea. Their expedition team will whet your appetite with many extraordinary experiences, from the Orangutans of Borneo to awe-inspiring gorges and waterfalls of The Kimberley. You can even follow in the footsteps of famous Antarctic explorers and visit the historic Mawson's Huts; more people have reached the summit of Mount Everest than have stood inside these rare and ancient shelters!
