This is a sponsored guest post – something we do from time to time, allowing readers of our blog to look into awesome travel opportunities. We’ve written enough about cruises that you know it’s a form of travel that we embrace and advocate. Here’s to hoping there’s a cruise sometime soon in your travel plans!
If you’re after a holiday of a lifetime, a cruise must surely be high on your wish list. Whether you choose a popular fly cruise or sail from the UK, there’s a spectacular array of different cruise itineraries to suit virtually every different personal preference imaginable.
Let’s say you’re after a short weekend away or a trip to the city with a bit of a difference. You could try a mini cruise – it’s a fun and slightly alternative way to experience cruising as it’s much shorter than a normal cruise holiday. Usually just a night or two long, these mini cruises are perfect for those who haven’t tried a cruise before, or who want to get a taste of cruising without committing to a full week away. You can sail from the UK and visit the likes of Bruges or Amsterdam, or combine it with a holiday and take a cruise to explore other locations – for instance, you could sail from Florida to the beautiful Bahamas.
Or if you fancy something a little more adventurous, you could take a fly cruise and explore some of the world’s most beautiful destinations. With a fly cruise the world really is your oyster. Why not spend a fortnight discovering the Caribbean islands, or travelling along the west coast of the U.S.? You could take to Alaska and experience the frozen beauty of its glacial peaks and stunning wildlife. Or discover Mediterranean magic in the form of Italy, Spain and the local islands.
Of course if you prefer to sail from the UK rather than take a fly cruise, there are plenty of itineraries visiting fantastic destinations near and far that don’t require you to step foot on a plane – perfect for nervous flyers!
Whatever type of cruise you fancy, whether it’s a mini cruise, a UK departure or a fly cruise, visit Cruise Thomas Cook to discover a fantastic range of destinations and to compare options across a wide range of cruise operators.
