Part of an adventure holiday packed with activities of your choice to help you relax and unwind is seeing a bit of the world, exploring the unknown, visiting new shores and also seeing some of the best sights in the world from a different perspective. If you expect all that from your activity holiday as well as doing it all in style and with a high level of comfort and luxury – a cruising holiday might just be the ticket for you. If you have the time to explore the world or parts of it at a gentler and slower pace, then take a few minutes to search our website for some of the best cruising holidays around.
If you think cruising is a posh affair out of your budgetary league, then think again. There are so many different types of cruises to choose from, which suit everyone’s interests, time constraints and budget. If you are new to cruising and don’t want all the formal things, which go with the big cruises, then why not relax on a river or coastal cruise exploring Europe’s most well known rivers, like the Danube, the Rhine or the Seine. It is a fantastic way to travel right into the heart of Europe’s most beautiful cities and go off board to explore the sights and relax in the continental atmosphere with its cafes and famous landmarks. Why not take in Moscow and St. Petersburg, the Venice of the north, on a Russian river cruise and sample the local customs and cuisine. River cruises offer smaller, more intimate and less formal surroundings, than ocean cruise ships, with an average of only 140 -160 passengers, which also means that all cabins are outside cabins, and you can also take in the view from standing or full sit on balconies.
On the other hand you might crave all that formality and luxury, which comes with relaxing on a smaller cruise, like a Mediterranean cruise or a polar cruise or indeed you might want the full Monty with a world cruise. In between exploring exciting places ashore, why not join in with the social activities on board or with all the pampering treatments on offer. Chill out with a massage or go to a Yoga class, have a swim in the pool and detox in the sauna, or simply soak up the sun on deck of a great ocean vessel. There are a range of other high class cruise holidays available, such as for instance world river cruises, which will take you along the Nile, or the Yangtze or the exotic Amazon, affording you to take in scenery only accessible by water. Luxury cruises are another first class holiday option, offering to take you to the world’s finest destinations with top class facilities on board, catered for by renowned chefs providing specialised cuisine and an on board service second to none. So, whether you are after some European culture or want to relax in luxurious surroundings exploring the world – give a cruise holiday a go.
