Find out how cruising could be the perfect holiday for you

With such a huge choice of cruise lines, ships and styles on offer, there’s no doubt that cruising can be for everyone.


Many of the newer ships are family orientated, with great kids’ clubs for tots to teens, evening entertainment for parents and spacious rooms and suites to give everyone their own space. You’ll find that some cruise lines, such as MSC offer heavily reduced prices or even free child places now.


Cruise lines are starting to cater much more for solo cruisers, in fact some of the newer ships such as P&O Cruises’ Azura has a small number of single cabins that are supplement-free and other cruise lines are following suit. Many solo guests find that cruising is a very sociable holiday because there are so many activities on board and therefore opportunities to meet new people.


If you’re holidaying with friends you can spend lots of quality time together by the pool, in the bar or over a few games of golf. Larger cruise ships also offer the freedom to do your own thing when you fancy it too.


More and more honeymooners are choosing to cruise. After the stress of organising a wedding, many couples find that a cruise is the effortless holiday they’ve been dreaming of. Some cruise lines offer ‘cruisetour’ packages which combine land tours with cruises for a truly unforgettable holiday.
