Set sail...



A cruise holiday is a unique way to combine a multitude of experiences – both on land and on board. You may opt for an ocean cruise, river cruise or even an expedition cruise, but one thing is guaranteed and that’s an adventure of a lifetime.

While on board you’ll never be bored. Whether you choose a family-friendly ship or small ultra-luxury vessel each cruise offers an abundance of leisure facilities, activities, entertainment and shopping.

Cruise holidays for everyone

Solo Travellers

A cruise holiday is a great way to meet fellow singles and like-minded travellers. Many cruise lines offer single cabins, and host social events specifically for solo sailors.


See more of the world together on one trip, as you wake up each morning in a different destination ready to see the sights and savour new flavours.


Family cruises are becoming more and more popular with newer ships designed to entertain all generations from children’s clubs to adult only hubs.


With so much variety on offer, a cruise holiday can truly please one and all. Social spaces on board are perfect for group gatherings.

“I prefer to cruise to places that are a challenge to visit otherwise, such as the Galapagos, Alaska. There’s a camaraderie onboard as explorers by day who then come together to share stories by night…”
