New to cruising

In recent years, cruising has become an increasingly popular way to travel and see the world – and when you consider everything that a cruise has to offer, it’s easy to see why. Cruising for some has become the number one travel choice and if you haven’t considered a cruise for your next trip away, here’s why it should be at the top of your list.

1. Fantastic value for money…

Sailing away has never been more affordable. Your cruise package includes accommodation, all meals on board, entertainment, activities and social functions, use of all ship facilities, plus flights and transfers where applicable. A number of cruise lines also include shore excursions, gratuities, on board spending money and drinks packages!

2. Cruising is all about choice…

With the world at your fingertips and a whole host of cruise ships to pick from, the way you cruise and where you cruise to is all about you. From an all-inclusive ultra-luxury circumnavigation of South America or traditional cruise of our very own British Isles, to the chance to witness the Northern Lights on deck or sail through Europe’s waterways – the choice is always yours.

3. Meet new people…
On board a specific ship and sailing towards the same destination, you’re bound to find things in common with your fellow passengers. Many cruisegoers find that the like-minded people they meet on board often become friends for life. But fear not – if you prefer your own company, then there are plenty of spaces available on board for a bit of peace and quiet.

Food on a cruise ship


4. Mouth-watering food and drink…
Ask any frequent cruiser what every time… their favourite part of a cruise is, and food and drink are guaranteed to be up there. With awardwinning chefs and a selection of top restaurants on board, the food has a well-deserved reputation. From ‘round-the- clock’ buffets and elegant dining halls to speciality restaurants and a choice of fixed dining, your options are overwhelming.


5. Exceptional service, everytime...
Whilst on board you can expect a nightly turn-down service and chocolates on the pillow, a head waiter, assistant waiter, and possibly a wine sommelier to attend to your every need at dinner, and cruise staff will greet you and offer assistance for anything you may need. The staff on board are always delighted to help but are never intrusive. You can expect to be treated like royalty; after all, this is all part of the cruise experience.

6. At your own convenience…
Most cruise companies sail from a range of ports in the UK, so it’s easy to travel to and from your joining port. If you choose to take a fly-cruise, the cruise line can arrange flights, baggage handling and transfers to and from the ship.
