Cruise Ship Visits for 2018

Cruise ship visits

We’d like to invite Silver Travellers to join one of our popular ship visits around the UK, giving you a fabulous opportunity to sample a little slice of the cruising life before you take the plunge. It’s a great way to spend the day on board a range of ships, sit down to a superb lunch, and explore the ships’ facilities. Ship visits are a perfect experience for those who have never cruised before to enjoy a taste of what’s to come. And if you enjoy visiting new ships then you may just find the perfect travelling companion for your next holiday!

From a cosy interior cabin to the grandest stateroom, you will have the chance to check out the bathrooms, test the beds for comfiness, assess any limited mobility requirements, and most importantly, gauge the wardrobe size to accommodate all those changes of clothes and shoes that you may wish to take!

With taster days of course comes the opportunity to be transported to a world where good food and fine wine is of the utmost importance, as you sit down to a superb meal in one of the ships’ main restaurants. There’ll also be ample opportunity to explore as you wander the decks, marvel at the theatres and entertainment venues, and browse the bars, shops, library, lounges and even the gym. Stroll outside and picture yourself relaxing in the jacuzzis, swimming pools, the sun bathing areas and much more. Several ships even put on a short show after the meal to give a flavour of the fantastic entertainment you can enjoy on board.

Tempted? Then here are the details of our Cruise Ship Visits for 2018 which will be updated regularly.

In addition to the ship visits programme shown below Silver Travel Advisor is organising a Group Cruise this year, in conjunction with our partner Ocean Liner Society. Sailing from Southampton on 13 December for an 8 night Christmas Markets of Germany & Denmark cruise on Fred. Olsen’s Balmoral. We have secured a discount of 20% across all cabin categories (subject to review from July). The Group Cruise is open to all Silver Travellers, their family and friends, and we really look forward to meeting you on this wonderful pre-Christmas cruise. Full details here.
