Where Will a Cruise Take You?
Fancy a sea-based voyage of discovery this year? One thing's for sure, when it comes to cruise holidays, the world really is your oyster.
You could keep it local and visit gorgeous locations around the Mediterranean Sea, perhaps stopping off on Spanish shores to visit vibrant cities like Barcelona and Valencia, or exploring the Balearic Islands. If you're travelling to Majorca, it's well worth alighting and taking a day trip to Palma. It's usually possible to walk into the city from the port, but it's quicker to join an organised coach tour or grab a taxi. Palma is a bustling city with a gorgeous Gothic cathedral, not to mention plenty of designer shops, lovely pavement cafes and cosy restaurants serving up fresh Spanish cuisine.
If you fancy a voyage through history, take a tour of the Greek islands and stop off to explore Grecian wonders and to soak up its fascinating culture and mythical legends. Or, book a Nile cruise to experience the world's most famous river, alighting to join day trips to such impressive landmarks as the Pyramids of Giza, the Great Sphinx and the Temple of Luxor. Or, enjoy the beach-centric vibe of Egypt's Red Sea coast by exploring resorts like Sharm el Sheikh - famous for its Caribbean-style beaches and spectacular deep sea diving sites.
If you really want to push the boat out, what could possibly beat a world cruise? This is seriously impressive stuff, and if you're keen to explore the world in one of the most relaxing and luxurious ways possible, a world cruise must surely be top of your agenda. Often lasting for over 100 nights, you can literally explore the world and spend time in the Caribbean, the US, Hawaii, Australia, Hong Kong, Mauritius, South Africa and more. And believe it or not, with prices starting from around £80 per night, it can be surprisingly reasonable too.
