About Cruising

Okay, so you probably have a rough idea of what you think cruising is all about. But be prepared, because we constantly hear from our first-time cruisers that they're totally surprised once they get onboard

The cruise ships we use are some of the most innovative in the industry - they're bigger and brighter, with a lot more open spaces and private balconies. The onboard and shore side activities appeal to everyone from the rock-climber, to the sun worshiper. While some people may think cruising is expensive, a cruise holiday is actually great value and is a very smart, affordable way to travel. When you're onboard one of our cruise ships, almost everything is taken care of - your accommodation, gourmet meals in the dining rooms and cafés and snacks throughout the day. All activities including the fitness center, entertainment and Youth Programmes are all paid for. Even 24-hour room service is included. We also offer unlimited soda packages, which entitle you to unlimited soft drinks and juice. From kids to grandparents, a cruise is the perfect holiday no matter what age you are.

Be sure to contact Cruise Holidays for the best priced cruise to anywhere in the world Review your cruise documents in advance for important guidelines and travel tips Prior to flying, call the airline - or check their website for flight arrival/departure information Make sure you have your passport and other travel identification on your person - not in checked bags Be at the airport early - 2 hours or more unless local circumstances dictate allowing a longer time.

New security procedures take additional time Make sure necessary medication items are with you rather than in checked luggage Lower the stress level or getting there on time by arranging a pre-cruise city package. Consider coming in a day early - especially when flying a long distance to the cruise Expect delays and longer lines - and be pleasantly surprised if they're not that bad Purchase holiday insurance. It is well worth the nominal investment Book your shore excursions as early as possible as the more popular ones tend to sell-out very early
