“Why would I want to go on a Cruise?”


This is certainly a question for those sitting on the fence as to whether or not to embark on a cruising holiday. Whether to continue going on holiday to popular land-based resorts, or to try something new. Taking that first step into the world of cruising is perhaps the most difficult part, but if you love it first time you’ll be hooked for life.

If you’re still undecided as to whether or not to embark on a cruise, we can help paint a picture of what you might be able to expect by dispelling a few cruising myths. All you need to do is choose from a destination and read on to find out what you can look forward to during your cruise.

I’ll just spend all the time on board a ship…

Unless you choose to embark on a transatlantic itinerary which, as you might expect, involves spending many days at sea, your cruise ship will offer a place to rest your legs after a busy day exploring on land. A seven-night Mediterranean roundtrip cruise will enable you to wake up to a new destination each day.

I’ll get bored…

Zenith Theatre

As well as a comfortable place to sleep and unwind, your cruise ship offers all the amenities you could expect from a land-based resort. You’ll be able to enjoy hearty meals on board throughout the day in a number of restaurants and cafes and there are plenty of amenities to keep you entertained. These include swimming pools, climbing walls, a basketball court, gymnasium, theatre, casino, duty free shops and a variety of bars and lounges.

Is it expensive?

We create affordable package holidays that are inclusive of the cost of all drinks, meals, return flights, overseas transfers and port taxes. You will never have to worry about budgeting for meals out or purchasing evening drinks at the bar. Everything has been included to ensure you get great value from your holiday. The only things you will have to pay for are optional extras such as speciality dining, excursions, spa treatments and spending money on shore.

Will my children get bored?

Children are perhaps the most difficult people to please when it comes to holidays. Luckily, the dedicated children’s and teen’s clubs on board will ensure they are fully entertained throughout the duration of your cruise. For ages 3-6, there is the Guppy Club ‘Minis’, whilst those aged between 7-11 can enjoy the Guppy Club ‘Guppys’. Teenagers can enjoy a specially designed programme of their own in the Teen’s club. All clubs are suitably supervised and available at no extra cost.
