Unlike many other holidays, a cruise offers exceptional value for money while still giving you a huge variety of choice. From all-inclusive dining to on board activities, you'll be amazed by what's covered by the price.
There is no 'standard' cruise experience - every cruise is different and individual to you as a guest, and can be enjoyed across a vast range of cruise companies, all of whom offer different itineraries, amenities and dining options. Be it large ship cruising around the Caribbean or sailing into exclusive, secluded ports on an ultra-luxury vessel, spotting whales and penguins while exploring Antarctica or a leisurely river cruise down the Rhine, there really is a cruise for everyone.
With the opportunity to discover multiple worldwide destinations, all while just unpacking once, cruising really is exceptional value for money.
From cruises around the UK, old favourites such as the Mediterranean or Caribbean, the ends of the Earth to the rivers of Europe there's an itinerary to match every taste and budget.
One of the most unique aspects of a cruise is the variety and value you'll find when you eat on board. Many different dining options are included so you're sure to find something for everyone, from special children's menus to adult orientated restaurants, either included in the price or for a nominal charge. So whichever option you go for, food on a cruise is exceptional value for money guaranteed.
The all-inclusive nature of cruising also means that there are many ships offering a host of on board activities, with something to suit every age and taste. Sit back and enjoy a film or theatre production. And, for when you're feeling active, there are state of the art gyms, swimming pools and plenty of other sports facilities to choose from.
What's more, you can travel the world in comfort, choosing your perfect bedroom from the huge variety available. And of course, this is all included in the price of your cruise.
Choosing a cruise for your next holiday also gives you greater flexibility in the way you travel. Fly cruise fares include flights to and from the ship and often/more often than not/always include transfers, if you're thinking about a river cruise, you can consider travelling by train to join the ship, and of course if you prefer, you'll find a great selection of cruises sailing directly from the UK.
