Cruises to nowhere

Fancy a short, relaxing getaway? A cruise to nowhere is the answer. We know what you’re thinking, “where exactly is nowhere?” These shorter cruises simply sail out to sea for a few days, allowing you to enjoy every facility aboard your favourite ship. Intrigued? Here’s what you need to know about a cruise to nowhere:

What is a cruise to nowhere?

A cruise to nowhere is a voyage that usually lasts one, two or three nights. Departing from a range of UK ports, cruises to nowhere sail out to international waters (usually so the cruise ships can open their duty-free shopping and casinos) and return to the same, or a different port, a few days later. The cruises are designed so passengers can immerse themselves in the on board experience and are a great way to enjoy a getaway for a reduced period.

Reasons to book a cruise to nowhere

If you’re unsure whether a cruise to nowhere is for you, here are a few benefits you may not have considered:

You can find out if cruising is for you

If you’re new to the world of cruising, a cruise to nowhere is a fantastic opportunity to get a taste of life at sea. During these shorter voyages, you can dine on delicious cuisine, relax in luxury accommodation and be wowed by show-stopping entertainment - all while testing your sea legs!

You can test out a new ship

Perhaps you’re a seasoned veteran, loyal to a cruise line or cruise ship but feel it’s time to broaden your horizons? With new ships launching every year, you’re spoilt for choice! Opting for a cruise to nowhere will allow you to test out new ships and see which one is for you.

You can cruise for less

Cruises to nowhere are ideal for those on a budget. At just a fraction of the cost of an average ten-night cruise, you can enjoy all the benefits of cruising but at a much lower price. Though you may not have as much time on board, you’re sure to come away feeling just as rejuvenated.

You can enjoy a last-minute getaway

If you prefer last-minute cruises then a cruise to nowhere might be for you. Thanks to their ease, these types of cruises are super easy to plan and don’t affect your busy schedule. Plus, you don’t need to worry about flights or lugging your suitcases around.
