Date Posted: 24/10/2019

We said there would be more to look forward to… So, let’s delve deep into another five types of cruising to find out what makes them so fantastic and why they might be just right for you!

Just in case you've missed the first part of this helpful cruise guide, click here to have a read!

Fly Cruises

With this type of exciting expedition you’ll fly from your selected UK airport and wing your way through the skies to reach your first destination before you set sail. Your transfer will be awaiting your arrival at the airport to whisk you off to your docking destination so the adventure can begin!

With this type of cruise there is so much opportunity to pack more into your holiday and start your expedition even sooner by jetting straight to your port. 

Plus, with a fly cruise there’s absolutely no need to worry about sorting flights that are suitable for you because it’s all taken care of when you book your package.

Whether you would like to explore the bustling markets in the Far East, take in the delights of the Caribbean, or sail to the sunny shores of the Greek Isles; you certainly won’t struggle to find the perfect voyage.

Luxury Cruises

If you’re used to living the VIP lifestyle or would just love a flavour of what it can be like then luxury cruising is an experience not to be missed. Discover the world’s most spectacular destinations in unrivalled style and enjoy first-class hospitality, spacious suites, impressive on board facilities, and a plethora of fine dining options. 

To add something extra (or plenty extra!) to your time sailing the waters you can spend your time in resort-style swimming pools, indulgent spas, and state-of-the-art fitness suites with a programme of insightful lectures, talks, cookery demonstrations, workshops, and captivating entertainment such as Broadway-style shows and cocktail parties. 

Plus, organised excursions and opportunities for mesmerising adventures await… just add a sprinkling of luxury!

Sailing from the UK

Sailing from the UK is one of the most popular ways to take a cruise holiday for the majority of Brits to avoid the unnecessary stress of airports and sail conveniently from a UK port.  

Most of the time you’ll have the chance to embark your cruise from ports including Southampton, Dover, Newcastle, Hull, Liverpool, and so many more. 
The beauty of sailing from a port means that those of you who struggle to pack lightly have little to no restriction on what you can bring! Just ensure you arrive with plenty of time in preparation to set sail and it really is as easy as that… 

All Inclusive

When you choose an all inclusive cruise holiday you add an extra carefree element to your experience. You really can get the most out of your time cruising whatever your budget! Enjoy three meals a day, 24/7 snacks, sports and leisure amenities, kids activities, and spacious swimming pools, as well as the bonus of alcoholic and soft drinks thrown in as part of your deal too. 

Plus, you don’t need to worry at all about gratuities and booking shore excursions as these are always included in your package. 

Perfect if you’d like a few after-dinner cocktails and don’t want to worry about the price, if the kids are still hungry after their main and want dessert, or if you’d like to rest aboard your cruise and still make sure the kids are entertained – there are endless reasons why all inclusive cruises have enough to please everybody.

River Cruising 

With a river cruise you are free to uncover the world’s most picturesque rivers and breathtaking waterways as your ship drops anchor at the heart of many ancient and cosmopolitan cities and towns – perfect for the avid explorer. 

You’re never far from plenty to see and do with a river cruise because you’re always docked at the centre of the hustle and bustle. Spend your days ashore soaking up the culture, making your own adventures, or indulge in some retail therapy.

 When you cruise river-style your ship is usually an intimate experience, with only a range of around 50 to 200 passengers accompanying you. Days at sea you can lose yourself in a book, treat yourself to a massage, join a fitness class, or break a sweat in the fitness centre. 

Round off each visit to your port of call with Captain's cocktail parties, gala dinners, live music, and entertainment.

Sail the sensational waterways of the Rhine, Danube, Douro, Mekong, and so many more for an unforgettable time away.
