What is new to cruising?

New to cruise is for those that have never experienced the magic of a cruise holiday. Cruising has become one of the travel industry’s fastest-growing holiday types and it’s easy to see why.

There are so many reasons to choose a cruise for your next holiday. Cruising represents fantastic value for money - your cruise package will include accommodation, meals on board, entertainment, activities and social functions, use of all ship facilities, plus flights and transfers where applicable. What’s more, cruising is the most convenient way to see the world. No-fly cruises depart from a range of ports in the UK so it’s super easy to travel to and from your joining port. While fly cruises are organised by your chosen cruise line from start to finish meaning you don’t have to worry about flights, baggage handling or transfers to and from your ship.

Cruising can take you to parts of the world you might not have thought about before. You can see new places and unpack only once. Plus, with so many cruise lines and cruise ships to choose from, you’re truly spoilt for choice. From the small, intimate boutique ships carrying just a few hundred people to larger ships that hold up to 6,000 passengers, the choice is yours.

Destination highlights

The world is your oyster on a cruise. For those new to cruising, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and Norway are popular cruise destinations. For decades, people have flocked to the Mediterranean, in love with its stunning coastline, elegant seaside towns, wonderful shopping spots and superb restaurants serving freshly caught seafood. While the Caribbean, known for its picturesque vistas, pure white sand beaches, turquoise waters and endless outdoor adventures, is an ideal cruise destination for those looking to relax. Norway is where adventure awaits. Discover the land of the Midnight Sun and wake up surrounded by breathtaking fjords, ornate houses and endless flora and fauna.
