Tips for planning a 2021 cruise

It goes without saying that Covid-19 has had an unprecedented impact on the way that we travel the world in 2020. With discovery, relaxation and adventure limited to our homes and gardens for the foreseeable future, what better time is there to look ahead and plan your next dream cruise? Whether you’re dreaming of indulging on a luxury Caribbean cruise or want to join a voyage to Antarctica with expedition experts, staying safe at home is the perfect opportunity to plan your next cruise holiday. Here are our top 5 tips for planning a cruise in 2021 and beyond…

Speak to a cruise specialist

If you’re unsure about travel at the moment but keen to start organising your next cruise, then the best thing you can do is speak to a trusted cruise specialist. At ROL Cruise, we always have and always will, look after your holiday as if it were our own. Our ABTA membership protects all package or tailormade holidays booked through us and our ATOL license protects them where flights are involved. Booking with a cruise specialist means that you are booking with confidence, safe in the knowledge that you are fully protected.

Make it your own

Are you dreaming of dining in a specialty restaurant? Perhaps relaxing in Iceland’s natural hot springs appeals? Or maybe you want to seek out wildlife on a kayaking tour of Norway’s fjords? Spending time making your cruise experience your own means that you can cater every element of your holiday to your needs. Drinks packages, shore excursions, spa treatments, dining experiences and so much more can all be booked in advance, so you can be sure that by the time your cruise comes around, you already have each day planned to perfection.

Look forward to the future

In these uncertain times, it’s the things that we look forward to that make us smile. Knowing that you have a holiday to look forward to will brighten your days no end, and even more so when you’ve booked with confidence with a trusted cruise specialist. Safe in the knowledge that you are fully protected, you can enjoy spending time at home with your family knowing that this time next year, you will be on holiday, making memories that last a lifetime.

Plan your bucket-list experience

With so many intriguing destinations and unforgettable experiences on offer, having the time to plan ahead means that you can craft the holiday you’ve always dreamed of. From witnessing the wonder of the magical Northern Lights to sailing the paradise islands of the South Pacific in 6★ luxury, whatever your holiday needs are, time spent planning at home means that you can make it happen. Or, with many operators crafting exclusive tailormade packages, such as ROL Cruise’s Signature Experiences, you can rest assured that every part of your holiday is taken care of for you.

Enjoy time spent together

Staying at home means that we aren’t getting as much time with our loved ones as we’d like. So, if you’re thinking of planning your next cruise, then why not see if your family and friends want to come along for the adventure too? Spending quality time with those that you love under the beaming sun of the French Riviera, hiking through the iconic trails of Machu Picchu or over exclusive cocktails in a private lounge will prove to be unforgettable and moments that you will remember for a long time to come.
