Cruises aren't just an all-inclusive holiday resort on the water, they're luxury personified and allow you capture the magic of an entire region or continent not just one city! Rather than spending the entirety of your holiday in just one destination, you get to see several, because each day and night, the resort (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 and even cooking classes, most of the big cruise ships now have something for everyone.
There's a lot of choice when it comes to destinations, resorts and the cruises themselves. Virgin break down their cruise and stay packages for you with a range of options from Fly cruise and stay, All-inclusive cruise and stay, Luxury cruise and stay and even Disney cruise and stay.
If you're not one for following the beaten path then we understand. No captain is fit to steer your ship but you. If you'd like to create your own custom holiday, be it a road trip across Europe or a quiet beach break to recover for a long road trip, our travel experts will help create one free of charge.Make My Trip
We recommend always taking out insurance before travelling. Better safe than sorry, however cruises are as safe a trip as you could take. Everything is on camera and accounted for on a cruise ship unlike backpacking through backstreets.
A week should be your minimum target with anywhere up to 3 weeks also being great. It depends on your availability and appetite for discovery.
That depends entirely on the length of the cruise in total. Usually a night or two in each location is the standard but check the itinerary's to find the specific details before booking.
