One of the great things about cruise holidays is that you can literally explore the world – one port at a time. Whether you want to discover buzzing cities or traditional market towns, mist-shrouded lakes or sun-drenched beaches, there’s a cruise with your name on it.
Cruises can take many different forms. As if it’s not enough that you can visit a long list of fabulous destinations in one fell swoop, many cruise holidays offer a high standard of onboard living that really ramps up the luxury factor. So what better way to tour the Caribbean islands or explore some of Europe’s most popular cities than in the lap of luxury?
It really is a fantastic holiday experience, and there are so many wonderful places you can go. Some cruises are just a couple of nights long, and take in sizzling city locations like Amsterdam in Holland or the lovely chocolate-box city of Bruges in Belgium. These mini cruises are a great way to get acquainted with this style of holiday and they make for a fun weekend away too.
Around European waters, you have a fantastic choice of itineraries at your feet. Many cruises are based around the Mediterranean, touring the coast of Spain and Portugal along with the south coast of France, the Balearic Islands, Malta and North Africa. Moving into the Ionian and Aegean seas, you’ll find itineraries travelling all around the Greek islands and along the coast of Croatia, providing day trips to the historic walled city of Dubrovnik, along with many beautiful Italian locations.
And of course for the ultimate adventure, you could take a world cruise. Disappear for several months on the trot and enjoy an unforgettable round-the-world itinerary, visiting such gems as the Caribbean, the U.S. east coast, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and many others.
