Why choose a cruise
Many of us find it hard deciding where to go on holiday, so why not choose a cruise? Imagine waking up every morning somewhere different, for instance if you decided to go on :
A Nile cruise
Imagine sitting out on the sun deck, sipping a cool drink while snaking your way down the longest river in the world. A cruise along the Nile allows you to experience all the sites and sounds of this ancient land.
f you’re short on time but still want to set sail, then a Mediterranean cruise is your best option.
Often split into either eastern or western-focused trips, you’ll get to experience some of Europe’s most beautiful and cosmopolitan destinations all in one holiday.
Western cruises can take in the cultural sights of Barcelona, the glamour of Monte Carlo and the romance of Italian cities such as Venice or Rome.
Eastern cruises can take you into the Azure waters of the Aegean Sea and the Greek isles of Mykanos and Santorini. Then there are the bustling markets of Morocco and the blissful beaches of Croatia and Malta.
Combine a safari trip with your cruise for an action-packed holiday in South Africa.
Begin your adventure in Cape Town and enjoy the stunning scenery of the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve and Cape Point. Close by are the famous wine lands, most famously the picturesque Stellenbosch with its oak-lined roads.
Back on board, you can drift onwards to East London (not UK), with its lagoons and waterfalls and the colonial influenced Durban.
Further on is Port Elizabeth, where you can enjoy excursions into the Shamwari Game Reserve before cruising to Mossel Bay. The dramatic shoreline here is often touted as Africa’s most spectacular
When it comes to booking a cruise, the sheer choice can prove overwhelming. But before you reach for your credit card, ask what you want out of the cruise. Are you looking to laze around or get exploring? Do you want peace and quiet on board or lots of activities day and night?
Don’t be afraid to ask the travel company lots of questions to make sure the cruise is right for you. And don’t get forget travel insurance to make sure you’re covered should things go wrong.
