Go on a Cruise

Why limit yourself to one destination when you could stay in a 5 star hotel and float your way to a range of exotic far off locales.

What is a cruise?

A cruise is basically like an all-inclusive holiday resort on the water. However, rather than seeing just one destination, you get to see several, because each day and night, the resort (the cruise ship) travels somewhere new.

So you get to enjoy the relaxation and ease of planning that comes with a resort holiday, whilst also enjoying several destinations when you stop at port – it's the best of both worlds.

Cruise ships now are getting bigger and better, accommodating more people, and having more activities on-board. From 5* restaurants, to luxury shops, to water sports, board games and organised competitions, most of the big cruise ships now have something for everyone.

Why do people go on a cruise?


Multiple destinations, free on-board entertainment and activities, all-inclusive meals – cruises are the perfect combination of luxury, relaxation and adventure.

There are some cruise ships that are great for people of all ages, and there are some cruise ships that are a little more specialised. For example, there are now Disney cruises, luxury cruises, gay cruises, and cruises tailored to specific interests like poker, music, even cats!

Whether you're someone who likes to relax and eat-all-you-can at the included buffet, or you'd rather be active and adventurous, cruises have got you covered. You can go shopping on-board, take part in organised activities, play sports on deck, watch evening entertainment and eat in fine-dining restaurants. And that's all before you've even got to your first port.

Once you arrive at a destination, you’ll be free to explore it for a set amount of time, or book an excursion, and once you’ve finished exploring and adventuring, you’ll have the comfort of the cruise ship to come back to. Cruises are also a great way to meet like-minded passengers, which makes them great for solo travellers as well as friends, couples and families.
