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.
